I What Sidelights are and Why You Want to Consider Adding Them to Your Front Entry Enclosure
What Are Sidelights?
Sidelights are decorative aluminum inserts that affix to the screen(s) on one or both sides of a screen door on a front entry enclosure.
Consider Adding Sidelights To Your Front Entry Enclosure
Every home has a style. Adding a front entry enclosure is a great opportunity for you to add a customized look to the front of your home. Extend that style into the entry, add curb appeal and even additional security with sidelights.
The Benefits of Sidelights
They serve several purposes:
- They carry the look of a home’s architecture to the front entry enclosure
- They fill the openings on either side of the screen door
- They add curb appeal
- They add security (additional strength and durability) — they are made of the same strong .065 aluminum as PCA screen doors
- They allow you to fully customize your front entry enclosure — six series of designs, corner scrolls and finials provide many decor options
How To Select Your Sidelights
You now are at the point when you want to design your front entry enclosure. Keep in mind the architectural style of your home when making selections. You will begin designing your front entry enclosure by selecting your screen door. Once this is selected, move on to selecting the sidelights for either side (or one side) of your door, followed by selecting your sunburst which is in the screened area above your door.
We have six primary sidelights design styles (shown in the gallery of images to the left), and within each are style variations (series). You can scroll the gallery to see the various series and individual options. The design visualizer is a great way to make your selections.
