I have two sets of double pane metal french doors. The decorative grill (plastic) on the outside and inside of the glass is what separates the glass into 15 panes giving it the appearance of french doors. The grills are held together by screws on the perimeter of the grill. I am tired of cleaning the individual panes and would like to remove the grill so there is one solid piece of glass. Can this be done?

Thanks!

it all depends if the grills are a seperate item from the actual window frame if the grilles are integrated in the frame that the glass sits in then no you can not unless you reorder a replacement frame to put the glass back into. It kind of sounds like you have a ODL glass insert (other manufacturers have the same design though). If you do have an ODL insert than the grille is integrated into the frame as most are on plastic grilles that go on the exterior.

Check with your local home center about getting a frame for your glass that doesn't have the grilles on it.

THANKS,
