Diagram - Diagram - Window exterior

anatomy of and exterior window.
When looking at the exterior of a window, there are more parts than anyone would care to remember, and to make things confusing, there are multiple terms that can be used to describe the same components. Our "anatomy of an exterior window" diagram labels the most common terms.

Although at first glance a window seems like a relatively simple concept when breaking it down for the purposes of describing the individual components, a window can become a complex grouping of whatchamacallits that make it impossible to convey to others.

When we are working with our customers, this image will help ensure that we are on the same page when talking about specific parts of the exterior of a window.

The diagram above includes a double-hung, casement and awning window in the configuration.
