Suitable Standard Door & Window Sizes

For American Ingenuity Domes

These tables contain CALL SIZES which are the customary size identification of the window industry. Call Size is the actual window dimension, for example Call Size 3/4 x 4/6 expresses 3’-4” x 4’-6”, which converts into 40” x 54”.  The horizontal dimension is always listed first x vertical dimension.  Check with your window supplier as to what sizes are best suited for egress windows in bedrooms.

 

H = Horizontal Sliding or Horizontal rolling windows

V = Vertical sliding, either double hung or single hung

C = Casement, swinging type window

F = French Door

Cupola windows can not qualify for egress because they are too high above the floor. Two standard vinyl horizontal roller or slide type windows are needed to fill one rough window opening of a cupola. This can be installed with a mullion in between them or custom windows can be installed.
Florida and most other state's code for Glass and Glazing requires tempered glass to be used in windows whose nearest edge is within 24" radius of a door in closed position. Tempered glass is also required for glass panes with a bottom edge less than 18" and a bottom greater than 36" above the floor.

Maximum Rough Opening Sizes for Doors and/or Windows

Our Entryways and Dormers provide openings in the dome that accommodate conventional doors and windows that you purchase locally. The walls within these openings are built on-site to fit your choice of door and window sizes.

Because the sides of the Entryways and Dormers are sloped the width of the opening decreases as the height of the opening increases.

Typical heights (distance “D” from the floor to the top of the opening) are listed in the first column with the maximum available rough opening listed for each dome size.

Opening sizes are listed as Width x Height.
