All Arcadia Custom products can be manufactured with true divided lites (TDL) as an option and can be designed to match the project needs. All muntins (if used) are mortised and welded into the insert frame to form true divided lites (TDL). The frame and all panels are double weather-stripped. All extrusions are heavy gauge 6063-T6 aluminum.
