Window Grid (Grill) Types
There are many styles and configurations of window grids (commonly referred to as Window Grills). Window grids are available in several standardized patterns (photos - right). In addition to the standard grid patterns, most manufacturers can assemble window grids in custom patterns to match personal tastes or compliment a particular architectural style. The size and types of the grid (grills) can vary as well. The most commonly used grids are a flat grid or contoured grid (photos - below). The grid configuration is another choice that homeowners have today. Grids can be placed inside the panes of glass (internal grids), outside (external grids) or both (simulated divided lite - SDL). Lastly, the grids are available in several colors to match the window.
