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.

SUITABLE STANDARD WINDOW & DOOR 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”. These tables are for Vinyl Windows with Nailing Flange, designed for Frame Construction, single or double hung. (unless otherwise noted).

 

# = Horizontal Roller or Sliding Type

* = Standard Modified Casement Window

F = French door

 

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 edge greater than 36” above the floor.
