Grilles can provide and add to a home’s architectural style. They also give the look of individual windowpanes without the extra cost of multiple windows installed.
Different types offered by Pella of West Michigan will provide different looks and functions based on material and design. To find your home’s best match for window and door grilles, take a look at some featured varieties below:
INTEGRAL LIGHT TECHNOLOGY® (ILT) GRILLES
With the integral light technology option, there are permanently bonded grilles attached to the inside of the window glass. A special non-glare foam spacer is placed in-between them, casting a realistic shadow. This shadow effect gives the look of individual windowpanes. Our Integral Light Technology grilles create the most authentic look of all for true-divided-light windows. ILT are suggested by Pella for securing the traditional or historic design of your home. Interior finishes offered are unfinished, pre-finished stain or paint, and primed. On the exterior, finishes for the ILT grilles are offered in matching cladding color, natural Mahogany, and primed Pine.
With the simulated-divided-light option, the wooden grilles are permanently bonded to both the inside and outside of the window’s glass. There is no spacer applied between them. If you are aiming for a more traditional home look with divided-light windowpanes, the simulated-divided-light option will be a perfect addition to your windows. Interior finishes include unfinished, pre-finished stain or paint, and primed. The exterior will match the cladding color.
REMOVABLE ROOM-SIDE WOOD GRILLES
If having the realistic look of individual windowpanes isn’t a necessity for you, a great alternative option would be the room-side option. The removable room-side is attached to the interior side of your windows with a latching system to hold in place. These removable options are great for glass window cleaning ease. If you prefer the wooden style but still want the easy access to the windowpane for cleaning purposes, the removable room-sides may be the best option for your home. Interior finish options include unfinished, pre-finished stain or paint, and primed. The exterior will be finished to match the exterior cladding color.
An option for both wood and aluminum. They are placed between two separate windowpanes, which creates the look of multiple windowpanes with divided light. Permanently sealing them between two panes of insulating glass will still allow easy access to both the in and outside windows of the home. This makes cleaning even more simple and accessible than the removable wooden grilles. There are seven color options to choose from with the interior finish, and the exterior finish will match the select exterior cladding colors.
