Not really sure how to answer since we don't know what material you purchased to use for the grilles. You might be able to half-lap the joints, or you might have to miter them... really can't say. Grooved or beaded profiles usually look best mitered together so that the profiles all match together at a central intersection. Flat profiles can usually be half-lapped. Hopefully, you plan to apply the grilles to both sides of the glass (you don't want to look through the glass and see the tape) so I'd probably recommend that you use 2-faced glazing tape to adhere the grilles to the glass. If your grilles will be 3/4 wide, get 1/16 x 3/4 tape... if they are 1/2 or 5/8 wide, get 1/16 x 1/2 tape. You will need to make sure that the added thickness of your grilles will not interfere with the operation of those horizontal sliding windows.
