In contemporary fenestration, there are a few different configurations by which muntin bar may be incorporated into a window. In double or triple-pane windows, muntin bar is often affixed between the panes of glass. Muntin bar used in this kind of application is permanent and provides the added advantage of easy cleaning since the window pane is broken up internally but is smooth and flush on its outer faces.
