Bay Window

Bay & Box Bay Windows

Things to consider when ordering Bay Windows

  • For Bay windows, the center panel must be fixed, but we can use casement, double hungs, or dead lite picture windows for the end panels. We discourage the sale of exceptionally narrow or exceptionally wide bays because the center panel can appear out of proportion with the rest of the unit. Bays will be manufactured as a standard 1/4 vent -1/2 fixed -1/4 vent based on opening dimensions. The angle will be within the range of 30 to 45 degrees.
  • Bay windows must be properly supported by knee brackets, overhead support cables, existing structures, or by other appropriate means. The weight of the Bow or Bay window must be transferred to a structural member capable of supporting the weight. Failure to properly support Bow and Bay windows may void the product warranty.
  • Minimum width of any operable casement section is 13" ; maximum is 36". Overall casement component size limitations are as they appear on the Westview Casement window price list.

  • Top (head), bottom (seat), and jambs are furnished with bows and bays. Roof is furnished by others.
  • Use total unit area and not glass area only to compute optional glass add on pricing. Please see catalog section 22 for add on glazing options and pricing.\
