Alexandria Classic vs Studio FAQ


Alexandria Classic Doors

More configurations with greater flexibility for retro-fit units and traditional design features with Beveled glass and Ogee panel.

Alexandria Studio Doors

More stocked sizes & styles available with customization options & contemporary design features.

Q: Is the Alexandria Studio door construction different?

  • A: Alexandria Studio doors use the same finger jointed stile & rail construction as our Classic doors with some additional modifications. Alexandria Studio doors feature 3 panel options that are engineered to be more resistant to cracking common with wood exterior doors. The interior face of the door also features a non-removable low-profile flat molding around the glass and panel. This low-profile flat molding can also be applied to the exterior of the door if desired.

Q: What is the warranty for Studio doors?

  • A: Our Alexandria Studio doors has the same 1-year limited manufacturing warranty as all of our other Mahogany exterior door units.

Q: Does the glass – to – panel proportions match the Classic Alexandria?

  • A: The 8’0” Alexandria Studio panel heights match the Classic Alexandria’s panel heights. However, the Studio 6’8” doors do not match the Classic 6’8” panel heights as they were designed to match the 8’0” doors instead. This makes the Studio 6’8” doors a true 3/4 view with more glass than the Classic Alexandrias.

Q: How is the Studio Raised panel different?

  • A: The Classic raised panel profile is used on most of our stock Mahogany doors. The Studio raised panel is a compressed panel with a single-step and no decorative Ogee profiled edging. This is a more contemporary style with simple, clean lines.

Q: Why are the side lites & transoms SDL (Simulated Divided Lite) and not TDL (True Divided Lite)?

  • A: In order to offer more customization options and popular requests received over the years, the option of 1LT and multiple transom lite options is a main difference between the Classic & Studio doors. In order to offer more options, we designed special SDL grids that are the same size and appearance as the TDL grids that match seamlessly with our Studio doors.

Q: Can direct-set side lites and/or transoms be paired with the Studio doors?

  • A: Direct-set is good stock option for customers wanting full=view side lites with their Studio Doors. Direct-set side lites/transoms can be added to most non-rated DSA stock doors. 

Q: Why is there a Studio SDL(Simulated Divided Lite) option and two SDL sizes available?

  • A: Since the Studio 1LT is available in the most sizes, we can offer the 3LT & 8LT doors in 6’8” heights and in the narrower 8’0” sizes without having to custom order. This increases the standard stock options available to our customers. Studio’s SDL grids (1 5/8” width)  match our Studio TDL (True Divided Lite) doors to ensure uniform appearance.  Additionally, since most SDL doors have narrower grids, the 7/8” width option is also available in a 3LT, 4LT, 6LT, & 8LT grid pattern for customers who prefer that style.

Q: Can custom glass (Rain, Seedy Baroque, etc) be ordered for Studio Doors?

  • A: Yes, custom glass is available for Studio doors at an additional cost and extended lead time.

Q: Can panels be swapped out for a different style after an order has been shipped?

  • A: Yes, the panels can be removed and changed like other stock DSA doors.

Q: Can Studio doors have distressed factory finish?

  • A: No, Studio doors are not available with distressed finishing.

Q: What is the lead time on Studio doors?

  • A: Alexandria Studio doors are stocked doors just like our Alexandria Classic doors. The lead time is the same as our standard lead time.
