AbstractThis report covers laboratory measurement of temperature, condensation and air infiltration on manufacturer's demonstration samples of an aluminum double double-hung window and an aluminum casement window intended for residential or commercial buildings. The frames of both consisted of two aluminum sections separated by a wood spacer to eliminate continuous metal paths from inside to outside. The sash of the casement window was similarly constructed, but with a hard-board spacer. Special consideration is given to the adequacy of these "thermal breaks" in terms of metal and glass surface temperature.
