The 5900 Double Hung is a full frame window used in new construction, remodels, or replacements that require new sills and jambs. It provides superior ventilation in summer months because both the top and bottom sashes operate. It includes two vinyl track liners that allow for tilt in cleaning, and complete removal for touch up painting.
5900 Double Hung standard features:
Solid clear vertical grain fir sash and jamb in paint or stain grade
Energy efficient glass with low-e and argon
Vinyl track liners in white or beige
Solid brass latch and lift available in three finishes
Weather stripping at top, bottom and check rail
1” interior stool with optional horn length
Flat grain exterior sill with optional horn length
Wide Mullion Layouts
Decorative leaded glass or wood grids
Although vinyl tracks are not part of a traditional window, they provide the best seal you can get on a window that slides. They allow for tilt-in cleaning, touch-up painting, and easy maintenance of your new windows. With no wood to wood contact, you never have to worry about your windows being stuck shut. They come in the color white to reduce warping and brittleness due to sun exposure.
Latches & Lifts
Latches hold a double hung shut. Lifts are the handles used to open a double hung. Both latch and lift are solid brass and come in three colors. Small double hungs require one of each while larger doublehungs may require two.
Our insulated leaded glass is custom made to order and can be made in two forms, Dual Face (recommended) or Thermal. Though Dual Face leading is limited to 3/8" wide lead and rectangular type patterns, it is covered by a longer warranty. The Dual Face leading projects to both the outside and the inside of the home for maximum visual effect. Thermal leading is available in 1/4" or 3/8" and will appear on both sides of one of the panes of glass. Options are endless with the Thermal leading but it will have a shorter warranty.
