Grille Options

Grilles visually divide the glass area of a window or door. Add grilles to your windows and doors to give them an extra design element. Sun offers three types of grille systems. GBG are aluminum grilles that are sealed in-between the glass. Wood Grilles are applied against the glass on the interior of the window. SDL's or Simulated Divided Lite grilles are a combination of interior and exterior grilles that simulate traditional multi-lite windows and doors while keeping the advantages of modern insulated glass units.

Wood Grille (Push-Pin style)
This removable wood grille mounts to the window interior. Grille clips with push-pin points slide in notches at the end of each grille bar to fasten the grille to the window. Removing the grille makes it easier to clean the glass. Wood grilles are available in 1" and 1-1/4" wide profiles.
