All of the DuraGard products are constructed using the finest materials on the market today. SWS chooses to use superior performing components, like Guardian's ClimaGuard RLE for our low E option. The ClimaGuard RLE low E is technologically advanced to provide superior efficiency while providing natural views. SWS insulates the ClimaGuard low E with Super SpacerŪ, a true warm edge spacer. Super Spacer is manufactured using an all foam formula which provides a significant energy advantage to metal spacers that conduct cold as well as Therma Core reinforced meeting rails which provide superior thermal performance. SWSuses block and tackle balances with dual rollers for smooth operation and tilt latch for easy cleaning and removability. (See features for more details).

All of our DuraGard products with low E/argon glass meet Energy Star requirements and are eligible for the federal tax credit.

Measuring Window Openings | New Construction or Replacement
There are a number of ways to measure an opening for a window depending on what the opening is going to be filled with (i.e. new construction or replacement)

Measuring by the rough opening (RO) or rough stud opening (RSO);

new construction only; SWS when given an RO or RSO measurement will deduct 1/2" off both the width and the height of dimension.

Tip-To-Tip (TTT);
when given a TTT measurement will use the exact width and height dimension furnished, no deductions.

Measuring by the opening size;

pertains to an existing window frame where sash has been removed but the window frame has been left in place to house the new unit.  SWS   when given an opening size dimension will deduct 1/4" off both the width and height of dimension to allow room to square up the opening after installation.

When ordering new construction mulled windows from SWS , there are no added measurements to account for.  Look at the actual size of the windows to be used, add them together, then add the width and height.  This will give the RO or RSO that you will need to frame to.

To determine united inches, add the height and the width.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call SWS for answers.
