What exactly are mullions?
A mullion is part of a window frame and divides and separates the window frame into sections. Mullions often act as a structural component and help transfer the upper levels’ wind load and weight into the structure below. Most often, storefront systems are composed of extruded aluminum framing and insulating glass.
Because most mullions are structural, they are often left untouched during renovations. This causes a problem for retailers who want to update the look and feel of their space. Mullions with outdated finishes stand out and can quickly become an eyesore.
Mullions used in new construction projects are often a standard aluminum finish. For many spaces, an aluminum finish will not flow with the rest of the space. When the mullions do not match the aesthetic of the space, they can become unpleasing to the eye.
