ZEEL®, an ingenious frame from ODL, exudes sleekness and versatility. This design removes the need for screws, relying instead on an innovative clip system. In addition, the Resolve® Sealant ensures durability, eliminating the drawbacks of wet glaze.
Whether you’re inclined towards the architectural emphasis of Spotlights® or the minimalist aesthetic of ZEEL, ODL caters to both classic craftsman and contemporary designs and everything in between.
ODL frames are rigorously tested, ensuring they surpass the North American Fenestration Standard for doors. These tests include checking structural integrity, water penetration resistance, air leakage, and forced entry prevention.
Selecting the ideal frame for your doorglass can avert common issues such as squeeze out, corner flare, and yellowing. The dedicated customer service team at ODL assists homeowners in this selection.
