Single or Double-Hung Egress Window

Single or double hung windows can serve as egress windows but are not commonly used. Because only the openable portion can count towards the “clear opening” requirement, a single-pane window is often preferred. The openable portion of the hung window needs to remain open without additional support to allow a person to escape and maintain the required opening as per regulations.
