Side Hung Egress Window Overview

Sometimes it can seem like there are endless building codes you have to deal with. We make checking off your window egress code easy.

Our Egress Windows with Hinges Side Hung are: 

  • Affordable and easy-to-purchase

  • Ready-made with a solid PVC frame and insulated glass

  • Made using specially-designed egress side hung hinges to optimize the egress opening

  • Designed with a simple locking mechanism that can easily be opened by children

How do side hinge egress windows work?

Our egress windows with hinges side hung open the same way as a door. This means that the window will swing inwards. What separates our side hinge egress window from other similar windows is the exact positioning of the side hinges.

Our hinge allows the window to swing completely open, without the open sash obstructing any of the clear opening. This unique design allows us to maximize the clear opening size, relative to the size of the frame, making it egress code compliant.

Sizing and Colours

Our egress windows with hinges side hung are available in white and three sizes:

  • 26" x 46" (5.80 sq. ft. clear opening)

  • 30" x 40" (5.94 sq. ft. clear opening)

  • 36" x 32" (5.72 sq. ft. clear opening)

Not the sizes you were hoping for? Choose custom dimensions with our custom side hinge egress window!

We can make a side hinge egress window to your exact sizing and color specifications. Just make sure you use our Egress Window Calculator to ensure your dimensions will pass egress code.

It is important to note that the sizes here are the dimensions of the frame, while the dimensions you may have seen in the building code are for the clear opening. The dimensions of the clear opening for each size of the side hinge egress window can be seen under the specifications tab above.

Egress Code Chart*

The following chart indicates where our window will meet egress code. Many localities simply default to the state building code, but there are exceptions. There are many municipalities and local building codes are updated all the time. It is ultimately your responsibility to confirm with your local government if there are any requirements above and beyond the state building code.
