Summary

the specific method for measuring the size of aluminum windows

Before we buy aluminum windows, we must accurately measure the aluminum windows to prevent a situation that cannot be installed. And if the data is inaccurate in the measurement process, it will also cause some safety hazards in the future use of aluminum windows. The following is the specific method for measuring the size of aluminum windows.

1. Determine whether the window products you want to buy are placed in the window frame or outside the window frame

Most bead curtains and curtains hang outside the aluminum window frame, but blinds and shade cloth are recommended to be installed in the aluminum window frame. If it is installed in the window frame, leave at least 1 inch (2.53 cm) of thickness.

2. Measure the thickness of the window

When measuring the thickness, it must be measured to the outside, that is, the longer width. For example, if you install a double-hung window, you have to measure from the edge position on the outside of the hung window, not from the groove inside. If there are handles and latches on the window, also include the thickness. If you don't count the thicknesses that should be calculated, there will be problems when hanging.

3. Measure the width inside the window frame

That is, the distance from the left to the right after the window is opened. It is recommended to measure this data three times at different positions (usually the size of the new window frame may be a little different between the top and bottom). That is to measure the width at the top, middle, and bottom of the inner window frame, and then take the smaller value of the three.

4. Measure the height inside the window frame

That is, the distance between the upper end and the lower end after the window is opened. Similarly, it is recommended to take three positions for measurement, namely the left, middle, and right positions.

5. Measure the width (from left to right) and height (from top to bottom) of the outside of the window

Note that these two data should include the part of the aluminum window frame, that is, measure from the edge of the aluminum window frame. Each data should be measured three times, that is, the width should be measured at the top, middle, and bottom positions, and the height should be measured at the left, middle, and right positions.
