The Basics: Infinity Windows 101

Casement Window

casement window is side-hinged window that swings out from the left or right with crank-out hardware.

Condensation

Moisture that forms on a surface. This could be a result of a difference in temperature between the surface and the air, or high humidity in the home.

Daylight Opening (DLO)

The area of the window or door where light passes through; the width and the height of the visible glass.

Double Hung Window

Infinity double hung windows have two movable sash (top and bottom) which are hung in the window frame and slide/operate vertically.

Frame

The stationary portion of a window that surrounds either the glass (direct glaze) or the sash (operating or stationary). There are three components to the frame: the header across the top, the jambs down each side, and the sill across the bottom.

Hardware

Window hardware includes locks, crank handles, and hinges on windows used to operate and secure them.

Low E Glass

Extremely thin coating of special low emissivity (low E) metallic material are applied to glass pane to boost energy efficiency and block out UV rays.

R-Value

The resistance a material has to heat flow is the R-Value. Higher numbers indicate greater insulating capabilities.

Sash

The operating and/or stationary portion of the window that holds the glass and is separate from the frame.

Sill

The lower, horizontal piece of a window or exterior door frame that supports the frame.

Single Hung Window

single hung window looks like a double hung, but only the bottom sash moves up and down.

U-Factor

U-factor measures how well a window keeps heat inside your home. A higher number allows more heat to escape; a lower number allows less heat to escape. If you live in a colder climate, you’ll want to look for a low U-factor.

Ultrex®

Ultrex Fiberglass is a proprietary fiberglass composite material made of resin and glass fibers with an integrated finish for durability. This superior material is used in Infinity products.
