Jalousie Doors: Charming Air

Reviewed by:

Jalousie doors have a certain old-style charm. They're also practical, providing full-door ventilation with the twist of a crank.

This jalousie door is made with extruded aluminum with 4" glass louvers. Glass retainer clips (for louvers) are rounded on the ends, not squared, to prevent snags and cuts.

A full-length piano hinge provides sturdy support and the door's bottom has a built-in kickplate.

The door can be custom ordered in "any color of the rainbow," as well as custom sizes, says the manufacturer. Other options include a tempered glass insert (screen is standard).

  • Jalousie Door shown measures 32" x 80" (custom sizes an option).
  • Price for a standard white door is $309 (October 2006).
