Unique Applications

Hanging or Dropped Transoms

In their typical installation, transoms are installed with a jamb. If the transom and jamb is installed in cased opening, an additional ply of jamb material is added along the bottom to make it thicker and scale better with its surroundings.

Sometimes, however, people are looking for a different look. In these cases the transom is "hung" from an opening without a jamb. We see this most often in built-ins and with modern, minimalistic motifs.

Transoms as Mirrors

Any of our transoms can be made with mirrored glass and installed in the wall or hung on the wall like a picture.

Hints: We have also seen transoms with mirrors used in bathrooms, dining rooms and built-ins as well as over mantles.

Kind Words From Our Customers

"I just wanted to leave a message at how happy we are with our transom windows. We ordered 4 last year to create a room divider between our living and dining room. The dimensions were perfect, and the windows were very good quality. They arrived right on time, and in perfect condition (the wrapping was excellent). Thank you for an excellent product." -- J.D., Laurel Hill, FL
