Sub-Zero does not recommend tinting or covering any portion of the glass on a glass door unit with any material.

  • Panel rails and stiles can be increased, however the entire glass door can not be covered by a full panel.
  • Sandblasting the glass can be done, however Sub-Zero does not have instructions or tips on how to do so.
  • Units are not tested for this type of installation.
  • It is possible that covering the glass could cause condensation to form and cause damage to the unit.
  • Covering the glass does not void the manufacturer warranty.
    • Damage to the unit that is caused by covering the glass will not be covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
