3 Popular Types of Simulated Window Grilles Available in Today’s Market

If you are in the market for replacement windows for the home, you will find that you have many options. These include the type of frame, the type of glass, and even the types of window grilles that will be used on the products.

Window grilles are very narrow pieces of material – such as vinyl, wood, and even metal – that are placed directly on the glass to make it appear as if there are several panes. Long gone are the days where several pieces of glass are placed in the windows.

In this guide, we will explore 3 of the most popular types of simulated window grilles available. 

#1: Simulated Divided Lites 

Simulated divided lites are designed to look like true to life divisions on the glass. The grilles are placed – permanently – on the exterior surface and the interior surface of the glass. Metal spacers are used inside of the panes of the glass in order to enhance the overall details of the unique design.

When you choose these types of lites, you may choose from various shapes, sizes, and finishes. You may also choose to have simulated divided lites that reflect a certain decorative accent or design. The choice is yours! 

#2: Full-Surround Grilles Composed of Wood 

These window grilles are created with wood and offer a high level of convenience in making a replacement window look as if the glass is divided into smaller panes. These are only placed on the interior surface of the glass and designed in such a way that they may be completely removed in order to clean the glass.

There are many product lines available today. These allow you to choose among the grille pattern that you desire, the finish, and the width. 

#3: Grilles Between Glass

These window grilles are designed to be placed in between the exterior and interior pane of glass that is placed in your replacement windows. Both surfaces are left completely unobstructed – which makes cleaning the windows an absolute breeze.

The good news is, you have many options. These include various colors, widths, and finishes. You may choose from contour grilles, flat grilles, and some decorative grilles.

If you want to add a touch of elegance to your replacement windows without all the hassle involved in traditional grille maintenance and cleaning, the GBG window grille option is the way to go!
