Both sashes on double hung windows operate to offer improved ventilation.
With so many shapes, Milgard® Essence Series® specialty shape windows let you get creative with stunning combinations. Essence windows use mulling technology that securely connects multiple units, creating a tight seal that protects against air and water infiltration. Consider combining your specialty shape windows with another operable style for ventilation.
Milgard® Essence Series® double hung windows have architecturally accurate details such as a 3 1/4" tall exterior rail on the sash and a 14° exterior sloped sills. The new tilt latch with a recessed release and the SmartTouch® lock make the window very easy to open and create a streamlined, clean look. You can also choose a spoon lock for a more historically authentic look or to more closely complement existing wood windows in your home.
Milgard® Essence Series® glider windows open almost effortlessly. Clean lines complement homes in a wide range of styles. As with our double hung windows, gliders feature the tilt latch for removal of vents and the SmartTouch® lock, both of which make the window very easy to open and create a streamlined, clean look. You can also choose a spoon lock for a more traditional look.
