Dutch doors, commonly known as barn-style doors, consist of two separate door panels which are stacked atop one another to create a top door and a bottom door. With Dutch door systems, the two panels can be operated individually for unique ventilation or in unison to create an entryway. These units are ideal for homes with pets or small children, as the top panel can be opened for ventilation, while the bottom panel remains closed providing safety and security.Solar Innovations, Inc.
