Door Glass Caming Information | Zabitat

Glass Caming

Door Glass finishes, also known as caming or sometimes leading, refer to the metal work that joins together the door glass elements. They are the pieces woven through the interior sections of a decorative door glass insert.

Caming finishes are an important consideration, as they contribute a good deal of the visual style of your doorglass design. There is a wide selection of finishes for each design to give homeowners options for matching door hardware, light fixtures, or interior / exterior furnishings to the caming of their decorative door glass.

Glass caming finishes can drastically alter the overall look and feel of a decorative door glass insert, a sidelight window, or a transom window. Picking out the right style of caming can be just as important as picking out the design style of the glass insert.

There are many options for glass design and caming finishes, which creates a large amount of glass caming combinations. Not all glass and caming combinations will be available in stock and may require a custom order. Custom orders can sometimes increase lead time in receiving your glass inserts to give us the time needed to build your glass exactly the way you’d like it.

Different caming finishes complement different entrance way designs which can vary greatly based on the overall appearance and design style of the home. When selecting the style of the glass, make sure to consider the many options available for the caming finish as well.
