Grids come in Standard, Valance and Perimeter styles in a seemingly endless array of combinations.
Standard Grids – also known as Colonial grids, these are the popular squares that work well in traditional or contemporary styles. Standard grids can be used on the whole window or door, just on the top sash. You can also specify the number of lites across and up/down, depending on the size of the glass.
Valance Grids – Valance grids are similar to the Standard grids but are only across the top of the window or door. Like Standard grids, you can specify the number of lites across and the height.
Perimeter Grids – For an attractive contemporary look, consider Perimeter grids which provide an outline on the perimeter of the glass with the grid intersecting in the corners. Perimeter grids offer an even broader choice of patterns because you can specify a perimeter on each window, on just a sash or a perimeter across an array of windows and/or doors. You can have the grid intersection only at the top or in all 4 corners.
Grids Between Glass - Door and window grids positioned between the panes make the window easiest to clean. You can choose between flat grids or sculptured grids.
Simulated Divided Lites - With simulated divided lites, the grids attach to the glass surface, both interior and exterior, with a spacer in between the glass to give your window and door a true traditional look.
Check Rails - Check rails are the same material and application as grids, but it's simply a wider profile that simulates a sash and has no intersections. This works well if you have a picture window between two single hung windows and want to keep the consistency of the horizontal sash line.
Decorative grid options vary by product Series and operating style. Be sure to check with your local Certified Milgard Dealer on the options available for your project.
