Parrett Unit Specifications

Parrett provided all-wood spiral balance double hung, fixed sash set rectangle, and napoleon (eyebrow) windows for this project. All units were constructed of specially treated pine lumber with a high-grade exterior factory painted finish in a color matching paint chips from the original barn windows. All windows were specified with a 5.5” flat casing that was applied by Parrett as well as a custom 7” subsill. Other specifications included 1/4” clear tempered glass along with 7/8” wide SDL bars. The hung windows were each outfitted with high-performing lacquered brass hardware that consisted of (2) locks, (2) lifts, and ventilation secure locks which ensured that accidental falls could not occur by restricting the opening range of the units. These historically authentic windows will remain durable for years and years to come.
