Safety. And that's why window grills do exist. Without them, the house is exposed and vulnerable to the entrance of strangers, not to mention that it is also super important to ensure the integrity of children and animals.
Since they need to exist to ensure the tranquility of the home, why not unite the useful to the pleasant? Yes, grills can also add aesthetic value to the home. Want to know how to do this? Follow this post. Let us help you choose the perfect grid for your windows. To get started, find out which models and materials are available on the market:
Types of grilles for residential windows
There are several types of window gratings for sale on the market. Some grids, for example, can be movable rather than fixed. This allows you to enjoy the opening and the window. The accordion models have also been used a lot, they have fallen into disuse, but now they have returned to integrate projects, especially those of more modern style.
You can also choose the grade material from the style of your home. Iron grids, especially those that have curved and rounded designs, are great for printing a more romantic and retro style to the house. Grid models with straight pipes, both vertically and horizontally, are very versatile and can be used in a variety of home projects, especially in the modern, clean and minimalist style.
Another detail that interferes directly in the aesthetics of the house is if the grid is installed inside or outside the window. The grid installed on the outside is more prominent than the grid installed on the inside of the window. However, the type of installation varies according to the model of the window and its opening.
Materials used in window grilles
Iron is one of the most widely used materials for the manufacture of window crates. The material is very durable, sturdy and can be painted with varied colors. However, iron is more expensive when compared to other materials.
Iron bars are also characterized by the colonial style, retro and romantic. Drawings made of this type of material are usually more elaborate, with rounded and defined edges and contours.
The metalon is made of cast iron and galvanized in tube shape, which can be square or rectangular. Like iron, the metalon is durable, tough and adheres to different colors on its surface. Metalon is lighter and cheaper than iron.
However, grades made of metalon do not have the same versatility of designs as those of iron.
Aluminum is the lightest of all materials. But for those looking for something tougher, this is not the best option. Aluminum tends to knead or deform easily.
The advantages of aluminum grille are in price and durability. The material is more accessible than the others and does not oxidize, like iron or metalon.
Another important detail to be thought about before opting for aluminum grille is the few color options available for the material. In addition, it requires a special paint that should be applied with a compressor.
Wooden grilles are not very common, but they are a good option to get out of that heavy and striking visual of metal grids. The material makes the environment more cozy, especially if the windows and doors are also made of wood.
But before opting for the material check the place where the grid will be installed, since the wood is more sensitive to the weather conditions. It is therefore important that the grid be waterproofed and treated properly to ensure durability. Maintenance should also be more frequent.
How to Care for Window Rails
The window grilles are part of the look of the house, so it is important to keep them always beautiful and well cared for. The first step is to ensure the painting. The grid can be the same color as the window or other color depending on the effect you want to give. For iron or metalon grids, the most recommended paint is synthetic enamel. For wood grids, it is possible to paint it with both synthetic and varnished enamel.
Check frequently if the grid has corrosion points, especially iron and metalon. The material oxidizes easily and can rust and, therefore, the main function of the grid that is to promote the safety of the house goes down.
On a daily basis, the care to keep the grille always beautiful and well-cared for is to wipe it with damp cloth to remove dust and other dirt that may accumulate on the surface.
Prices of grills for windows
The price of the grid for window is a very important and sometimes decisive factor in choosing one material or another. As previously stated, aluminum is the most widely used material. A grid of 1.20 by 1 meter costs, on average, $ 201. An iron grid in the same measure can reach R $ 600.
