Note For Casement Windows:

}

Clear opening widths shown are for standard casements with multi-point

locks and concealed hinges.

Exposed Hinges (a.k.a. Euro Hinges) - The Euro hinge is the default

hinge used when standard concealed casement hinges can not

be utilized (radius head units, high performance units and impact

performance units), or if this type of hinge is requested.

In most cases single-arm operators are used with Euro hinges, which

changes the clear opening widths. For units with this type of hinge, add

3-7/16" to widths shown for one sash open. For French casements

add 6-7/8" to widths shown for two sash open. Two sash open may

or may not be considered as an acceptable emergency escape and

rescue opening per the local building inspector.

}

All dimensions are taken with sash open to 90°, except for an “E” Series

unit with dual-arm operator and concealed hinges, which opens to 75°.

}

Shaded units meet most national building codes for emergency escape

and rescue requirements.

Definitions of Acceptable Emergency

Escape & Rescue Openings:

“Egress” has long been the term used to describe the clear opening

dimensions of a window or door necessary to enter or exit a building in

case of an emergency. With the release of the International Building Code

(IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC), “egress” is no longer the

appropriate term.

IBC and IRC have set the following as basic requirements for Emergency

Escape & Rescue Openings.

}

Minimum Opening Width: 20 inches (508 mm)

}

Minimum Opening Height: 24 inches (610 mm)

}

Minimum Opening Area: 5.7 sq. ft. (0.53 m

2

)

NOTE:

Please check your local codes to confirm that these Emergency Escape & Rescue

Opening requirements are applicable. Other requirements may also apply.

Rough Opening Recommendations:

The Kolbe standard rough opening dimensions published in our

product literature are provided as a guideline to maintain a minimum 1/4"

space between the window or patio door and the building structure. There

are certain situations where Kolbe recommends a gap larger than our

published 1/4" standard:

}

When installation clips are used, the gap should be increased to 1/2" on

the sides, top and bottom of the unit.

}

When mulls are installed in the opening, the gap all around should be

increased to 1/2". For installation consistency, the same gap should be

used on all units in the project.

}

When a sill pan drainage system is used, the gap should be increased to

1/2" on the top and bottom of the unit.

Because every installation is different, Kolbe strongly recommends

consultation with the local supplier or an experienced contractor, architect

or structural engineer prior to the installation of any Kolbe product.

Installation of Kolbe products, including sizing of rough opening, method

of attachment, fastener selection, and code compliance is the sole

responsibility of the architect, building owner, contractor and/or consumer.

Unless otherwise specified, if units are ordered by rough opening, Kolbe

will size the units using our standard minimum 1/4" gap - regardless of the

options or construction of the product ordered.
