Westchester Double Hung Window by Sierra Pacific Windows

The Westchester Double Hung achieves the narrowest check rail sightline in the high-end window market along with historically accurate sash proportions, according to Sierra Pacific. The window offers structural and thermal performance ratings including a PG50 performance rating on most standard sizes, and a 0.27 U-value with dual insulated low-E 366 and argon or 0.17 values for triple-insulating glass. Sash weights are 110-plus pounds, and measure 54 by 108 for 1 ¾-inch sash or 72 by 120 for 2 ¼-inch sash. The windows also feature a thermally broken sash construction, integral aluminum nail fins, and a patent-pending traditionally styled combination sash lock, sill end caps and drainage system, as well as a multi-point tilt latch.

Of these, the codes of greatest typical interest to fenestration manufacturers are the 2018 International Building Code, International Residential Code and International Energy Conservation Code. Read More 

Editor’s note: This week’s Talk covers the key fenestration-related code changes and provisions in 2018. A more comprehensive overview of the international code requirements for windows and doors is found via the link at the beginning of this newsletter.
