Double-Hung Series

4000 Series Double-Hung

With double-pane performance in a dual-pane design, the 4000 series delivers quality energy savings in a class all its own. The thermally optimized frame and non-conductive reinforcements are the secrets to this window’s efficiency. Encased in a beautifully refined silhouette, the 4000 is an affordable option that meets ENERGY STAR requirements for the ultimate insulation.

Features

  • Includes SolarZone™ insulated glass package.
  • Ensure thermal efficiency with multi-chambered sash & mainframe
  • The hidden screen track produces clean lines and add beauty
  • Beautiful beveled exterior profile gives windows a clean, elegant look

4000 Series Triple Pane Glass

Triple-pane glass systems deliver an added layer of protection to block energy loss. Their precision-engineered construction features a 1″ thick glass unit, three panes of single-strength glass, two surfaces of Low-E (low-emissivity) technology, two spaces of argon gas, along with the SolarZone ThermD Intercept® Stainless Steel Spacer System for an ultra-efficient energy-saving shield. This thermally optimized glass system provides a more balanced, comfortable indoor climate, while also reducing outside noise.

4000 Series – Triple Pane Glass Features

  • Composite meeting-rail reinforcement allows for secure mounting of hardware; the non-conductive material helps reduce the transfer of energy.
  • Reinforced narrow silhouette frame and sash profiles make a statement of style with their low-profile design. The result is a beautiful and expanded glass area. At the same time, internal chambers increase structural integrity, rigidity, and energy efficiency.
  • End-of-throw cam shift locking delivers increased strength and protection to the recessed lock. It also includes an “unlocked” indicator.
  • The smooth and uniform true sloped sill quickly directs water runoff without the use of weep holes, keeping the exterior of the window clean and attractive.
  • Our telescoping sill dam delivers a triple payoff: protection from air and water infiltration increased structural stability and enhanced beauty.
  • When extreme wind and weather hit, our proprietary sill interlock stands strong. Traditional sloped sill designs can allow the sash to bow during powerful winds, but with our interlocking sash-to-sill technology, the sash is channeled firmly into the window frame for a unified wall of strength.
  • Our innovative screen bulb seal creates a snug fit that eliminates light and insect penetration between the screen and frame. It also aids in easy screen installation and removal.

6000 Series Double-Hung

The 6000 series is our most efficient window available, which comes standard with the SolarZone™ TG2™ package for the highest performance in insulation. Advanced engineering details and design flexibility will make this model your favorite replacement window for any home or style.

Features

  • Triple-pane insulated glass with Low-E and Argon
  • Foam enhanced mainframe
  • Airtight insulating chambers help reduce conduction and cut high energy bills
  • Quad 4 weatherstripping at the header adds even more protection from the elements
  • Full or half fiberglass screens provide ventilation while keeping insects out
  • Recessed locks

6000 Series Triple Pane Glass

Featuring the same slim frame as the 4000 Series Double Hung, the 6000 Series Triple Pane window maximizes energy savings. Triple-pane glass systems deliver an added layer of protection to block energy loss. Their precision-engineered construction features a 1″ thick glass unit, three panes of single-strength glass, two surfaces of Low-E (low-emissivity) technology, two spaces of argon gas, along with the SolarZone ThermD Intercept® Stainless Steel Spacer System for an ultra-efficient energy-saving shield. This thermally optimized glass system provides a more balanced, comfortable indoor climate, while also reducing outside noise. Best yet, 6000 Series windows are covered by Window World of Akron’s impressive Lifetime Limited Warranty for complete peace-of-mind.

  • Argon is an insulating gas between the glass panes that acts as a thermal barrier on energy loss, counteracting heat and cold conduction. Argon gas also helps block noise infiltration for a quieter indoor climate.
  • Low-E Glass insulating technology features a virtually clear, metallic
    coating that acts as a thermal mirror to help keep warm air in during the winter and solar heat out during the summer. Low-E also filters out damaging UV rays that can cause furnishings and carpet to fade.
  • SolarZone ThermD Intercept Stainless Steel Spacer features a
    unique, one-piece U-shaped design that stabilizes the panes of glass and creates a powerful thermal barrier. Stainless steel is impervious to gas transmission and withstands the effects of temperature changes, thus increasing gas retention and alleviating stress on the sealant bond to help prevent seal failure.

Advanced Triple-Pane Thermal Protection.

Comparing one glass system to the next can help you determine the best glass for your home and climate challenges. In the table below, U-Factor represents the rate of heat flow through the window product – the lower the U-Factor, the less energy is needed to heat a home. The SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient) represents the solar heat penetrating through the window – the lower the number, the more you’ll conserve on air-conditioning use. Window World 4000 Series Windows with SolarZone ThermD TG2 glass technology are 52% more energy-efficient than clear double-pane glass windows.

Double-Hung Windows FAQs

What are double-hung windows?

With double-hung windows, both the top and bottom panes of the window move up and down independently.

Reinforced narrow silhouette frame and sash profiles make a statement of style with their low-profile design. The result is a beautiful and expanded glass area.

At the same time, internal chambers increase structural integrity, rigidity and energy efficiency.

Are double-hung windows energy efficient?

Yes! Save on heating and cooling costs year-round with the SolarZone™ TG2 Elite™ insulated glass package. In warm weather, it will reduce solar heat accumulation, minimize interior glare and lower interior glass temperature. In cool temps, it delivers outstanding thermal performance and warmer interior glass surfaces to maintain comfort in the winter. This package also meets all ENERGY STAR requirements.

What are the size dimensions of double-hung windows?

Our double-hung windows are built to fit your home’s specific measurements. Contact us to learn size specifications of our different models.

Does this window style provide long-lasting durability?

Yes! When extreme wind and weather hit, our proprietary sill interlock stands strong. Traditional slope sill designs can allow the sash to bow during powerful winds, but with our interlocking sash-to-sill technology, the sash is channeled firmly into the window frame for a unified wall of strength.

How do you clean double hung windows?

Double hung windows from Window World are made with tilt-in sashes. This means both the top and bottom sashes can be tilted inwards to make it easy to clean both the interior and exterior of your windows.

To do this, you’ll want to follow these steps:

  • Unlock and raise your window about 2”.
  • Move the wash assist tabs so they’re between the sash and the frame.
  • Carefully pull the lower sash towards you and rest it on another object for support (be sure not to tilt it more than 90 degrees).
  • Next, you’ll want to lower the upper sash. To do this, slide the tilt latches to the top and lower the top window sash, leaving an inch or more of space between it and the lower sash.
  • Push the tilt latches inwards and tilt the upper sash inwards towards you, and rest it carefully on the lower sash.

What is the difference between single and double hung windows?

Both single hung and double hung windows have window sashes that slide vertically. On single hung windows, only the bottom sash can slide, while the top sash is fixed and static. On double hung windows, both sashes can slide as desired.

How are double hung windows installed?

All Window World double hung windows are installed by our factory trained installation team. This includes properly setting, leveling and caulking to ensure your new windows are a perfect fit. Find out more about our window installation process.

How do you open double hung windows?

For double hung windows, both sashes can slide and allow the window to open. To open the lower sash, simply unlock the sash and slide it upwards. To open the upper sash, you’ll need to unlock your lower sash, and gently lower the upper sash to your desired position.

How do you lock double hung windows?

To lock your double hung window, it’s important to check the alignment of your locks. Make sure that your upper sash is pushed all the way up and your lower sash is pushed completely to down so they’re fully sealed. This will allow your locks to be secured without any obstructions.
