"It starts with knowledge..." is more than a motto to us- it's how we do business. Our first goal is to share some of what we have learned about our trade with you.

Double-Hung

The Double-Hung style has a moving sash which slides up and down, and is held by spring balances, or counterweights held by a chain. This style is very popular throughout the Northeast, and in heritage style constructions across North America. The technical design allows for single glazing, or allows for high-performance double glazing with the application of perimeter gaskets. With the right tooling and equipment, meeting rails can incorporate many different gaskets, and decorative horn details can have near limitless variety.

Hardware

Hardware refers to all the metal components of a window or door. We're always say "design begins with the hardware" because the design and functionality of a window depends on the hardware choices (and thus, the style) that's build. The overall design of the end product is closely linked to the hardware decisions made in the initial design. Think about the different mechanical attributes of a window- how it opens and closes, how and where it locks- these are all dependent on hardware.

Each window style- whether a casement, tilt-and-turn, double-hung, or any other style- has its own hardware systems, including locks, handles, hinges and other limiting mechanisms to control window sash movements.

Weight bearing capacity, durability, security and other ratings are important factors in choosing especially for larger, heavier window designs. Hardware also should have acceptable water penetration and air tightness testing results for particular applications.
