Egress Calculator for Aluminum

Egress Formulas are based upon standard window features. Material or design changes may be made without notice or liability. In the event of discrepancies, only those egress opening sizes displayed in ClearQuote or verified by a PGT Product Specialist will be honored. PGT Dealers may obtain egress verification for specific units through ClearQuote. Architects requiring egress verification for specific units may contact a PGT Dealer or PGT Architectural Sales Representatives (Jack Redden, Oscar Cordova or George Hanus).

NOTE: Not all window sizes are manufacturable. Please contact a PGT Product Specialist to ensure PGT offers the desired size.
