Mullions on Windows

In most window styles, mullions are incorporated into the design for decorative reasons. They are most commonly used when the homeowner is looking for a heritage look as they separate the glazing into smaller window openings. Still to this day, many double-glazed window styles are split into smaller sections to create an era-specific decor or because mullioned windows offer better property protection during hurricanes and other major storms.

What is a Mullion?

A window mullion is a vertical beam that divides a window into smaller glass units. The purpose of a mullion on a window is to provide support to the glazing of a window, but it may also be required to provide structural support to a window arch. When used to support glazing, window mullions are often paired with transoms for extra support. Mullioned windows are common across Western and Gothic architecture as well as Islamic architecture.

Need for Mullions on Windows

Mullions can be found on a variety of window materials, including uPVC, timber, and aluminum windows. Often building regulations, structural implications, or simply budget constraints mean that it would be impractical to fill a window space with one large pane of glass. Mullions make it possible to divide windows into adjacent units or panes. With the use of mullions, windows can be better tailored to suit a homeowner’s needs, for example, meeting the requirements of their interior space or their preference for external access.

The use of angles, inserts, support metal and drilled anchors fix the mullion structure to the building securely. This transfers weather force away from the window glazing and onto the structure of the building. It is crucial that new or replacement windows are supported by strong mullions, and that the mullion system is installed by accredited industry experts for customers who live in coastal communities like Boca RatonMiamiDelray Beach, or Palm Beach Gardens
