History of storm windows and screens

Window-Frame-TableHistory

Exterior storm windows have been around since the 18th century and became common at the end of the 19th century.

To the right is a page from The Mulliner Catalog of 1893. Here wood storm windows are available to match the window sash design. Click to enlarge.

2-1/4 inch stiles are standard but 3 inch stiles are available.  Stiles are the vertical boards on each side of the storm window.

Storm sashes were 1-1/8 inch during the time.
