Design Recommendations


Depending on the number and configuration of windows and doors per opening, design recommendations for perimeter clearances, weight limitations, wind loads and water management may vary.


Perimeter Clearances


  • To determine window opening size for typical installations, add 1/2" to frame width and height
  • For large windows, multiple windows, out-of-plumb openings, and/or in masonry construction, the need for additional jamb clearances should be reviewed






Typical Sealant Recommendations

Proper sealant placement is critical to window or door performance.





  • When applying siding, brick veneer or other exterior finish material, leave adequate space between the unit frame and the exterior finish material for backer rod and sealant
  • Note: The sealant details shown are standard recommendations from the sealant industry. Contact your sealant supplier for recommendations and instruction for this or any other application

New Construction Combinations (Mulling)

Combinations



This section explores the opportunities, requirements and limitations related to joining various combinations of standard Pella® vinyl windows and doors.



Typical Window Combinations



Typical Door Combinations


Specific accessories and construction details must address the various conditions that are critical for the proper design of combinations of windows and doors such as:

  • Proper flashing
  • Control joints to accommodate expansion and contraction
  • Intermediate structural support
  • Mullion reinforcing and its end anchorage to the rough opening
  • Rough opening wall construction to accept loads transferred from window combination

View Comprehensive Design Recommendations for Window and Door Combinations




Two-Way Joint Recommendations and Parameters

When you want the visual impact of vertically stacked or horizontal window combinations, the Pella Commercial technical staff can work with you to provide mullion reinforcement or intermediate dead-load support detailed to ensure compatibility with your aesthetic vision.




Three- and Four-Way Wind Load Design Guidelines






Design Recommendations

Three- and four-way mullion intersections require wind load reinforcing in one direction (either vertically or horizontally). Many reinforcing options are available. The size of the reinforcing is determined by the wind load and window area carried by the reinforcing mullion.


Mullion Design

Placing windows and doors in a combination creates joints or mullions that may need structural reinforcing. Spread mullions can also be utilized to achieve an aesthetic element. In order to ensure that a given combination will withstand the design pressure, reference the reinforcing tables. These tables are organized by joint type and assembly type (factory vs. non-factory assembled). Use the graphical representation of each joint type to determine which joint type(s) are contained within the combination. The reinforcing tables consider structural performance only. See the Size and Performance Data page within each product section for single unit performance class and grade ratings.

Important:
Determining and meeting the structural load requirements and design of the rough opening is the responsibility of the architect or engineer. Window and door frame systems are not designed to support additional elements or components of the building wall system.
