Types of Lattice Windows
Looking at the Different Types of Lattice Windows
Lattice windows are a unique type of window with glazed bars running diagonally throughout the casement. The windows can be fixed or hinged. Modern designs are made of grids than can be removed from the window frame, while older ones were made with individual pieces of glass for each panel. Modern designs also include double or triple-paned glass for energy efficiency. Elaborate but older lattice window designs are common on churches, museums, and historic homes.
The different types of lattice windows are:
- Crisscross lattice windows are common on older homes with bowers or casement windows. This type of lattice window is intricate and elegant, so it may take some legwork to find the right one. Many window manufacturers can custom make crisscross lattice windows to look like the ones found on older homes. Crisscross lattice windows are suitable for any room.
- Embedded lattice windows are made of grids that are embedded between two panes. The panes are well insulated and sturdy enough to hold the heavy grids. This type of window can be found on doors and in kitchens and bathrooms.
- Removable lattice windows are available in single or double styles. Double models fit the inside and outside of the window and single models only fit the outside. Outside models are exposed to the elements, so make sure the material is durable. Materials include aluminum, vinyl, wood , and clad combinations.
