Did you know that annealed glass is “glass that has been treated to withstand temperature change and impact”? Or that a jalousie is a window “composed of multiple horizontal glass slats that fit together tightly when closed and are able to rotate open to allow airflow”?
The BM Windows replacement windows glossary also includes information about industry standards, best practices and governing organizations, all of which can have an impact on your replacement windows project.
The glossary explains regulations like the Model Energy Code, known as the MEC, which is a “publication of the International Code Council (ICC) containing energy efficiency criteria for residential and commercial buildings.” The glossary also explains the RC, an acronym for the International Residential Code, another publication of the International Code Council that “outlines codes for single-family homes, and low-rise multi-family buildings.”
When our customers who are doing research to select products or to determine the scope, including potential limitations, they face before taking on replacement windows or replacement patio doors projects, the glossary becomes a useful resource that saves time and prevents confusion.
