Multiple Assemblies

Units can be combined with single units in single frames, which is called "box-to-box assembly." VistaLuxe® Collection and Forgent Series products are all built with box-to-box assembly.

Alternatively, several sash can be combined in a single frame, which is called "continuous sill assembly." All Ultra Series casement and awning units now have continuous sill assembly, regardless of the sash widths or number of sash in the unit – up to 144 inches wide.
