ORDERING INFORMATION – Borrowed Lights and Sidelights

Borrowed Lights

 

Sidelights

  • Specify frame finish
  • Specify Casing type
  • Specify Net inside dimension of overall glass area(s) – width x height
  • Specify number of mullions – horizontal and vertical (if any)
  • Specify jamb depth Specify profile if using cased opening jamb
  • Specify fire rating (if required)
 
  • Specify frame finish
  • Specify Casing type
  • Specify Frame size for Door area – Width x Height
  • Specify Net inside dimension of overall glass area(s) for sidelight – Width x Height
  • Specify number of mullions – horizontal and vertical (if any)
  • Specify jamb depth
  • Specify profile if using cased opening jamb for sidelight area
  • Specify fire rating (if required)
For stepped or unusual shapes, submit sketch with inside glass dimensions   Submit sketch with inside glass dimensions and mullion locations.

For extended sill sidelights, specify dimension from floor to top of sill.

 

HOW TO ORDER

Order by Net Inside Dimension, giving width first and height second followed by wall thickness. (Ex. 48" wide x 36" high x 47S)

ROUGH OPENING:

Add 1 1/4" to width and 1 1/4" to height of Net I.D. (Ex. 49 1/4" x 37 1/4")

NOTE: For glass size, 1/8" less in width & height is common field practice.

 
 

HOW TO ORDER

Order by Net Inside Dimension, giving width dimension first and height dimension second then wall
thickness. Followed by the number of vertical/horizontal mullions.
(Ex. 74" x 48" x 47C w/one vertical mullion)

ROUGH OPENING:

(With vertical mullion)

Add 1 1/4", once only, to total of the combined Net I.D. in width and then add 2" more
for each mullion used. Add 1 1/4" to height of Net I.D.
(Ex. 36" + 36" + 2" + 1 1/4" = 75 1/4" W) (48" + 1 1/4" = 49 1/4" H)

(With horizontal mullion)

Add 1 1/4", once only, to total of the combined Net I.D. in width and then add 2" for each
horizontal mullion used. Add 1 1/4" to height of Net I.D.
(Ex. 36" + 36" + 2" + 1 1/4" = 75 1/4" W) (48" + 1 1/4" = 49 1/4" H)

 

 

HOW TO ORDER:

(Ex. 3/0 x 6/8 door with 1-6 sidelight)

STEP 1: Order by Net Inside Dimension, door width x height x 1 3/8 or 1 3/4 x wall size and series.

STEP 2: Give Net I.D., width x height of sidelight. If sidelight is full height, please note that the bottom sill reduces the height dimension by 2". It is therefore strongly recommended that the final glass measurement is made after the installation is complete.

STEP 3: Give complete handing information, hinge prep and strike information. If layout is reversible, handing is required for notching. (Must specify location of strike).

ROUGH OPENING:

STEP 1: To determine rough opening, add width of door, 2" for mullion, to width of sidelight and add 1 1/4" for rough opening width. (Ex. 36" + 2" (mullion) + 18" + 1 1/4" = 57 1/4" W (see example above).

STEP 2: Add 1″ to height of door for rough opening height. (Ex. 80" + 1" = 81" H)
