Egress Calculator for Vinyl

Egress formulas are based on general window features and are intended only as a quick reference tool. PGT Dealers may obtain egress verification for specific units through exoQuote2. Architects requiring egress verification for specific units may contact a PGT Dealer or PGT's Architect Representative (Jack Redden). In the event of discrepancies, only verified egress opening sizes displayed will be valid.

NOTE: Not all window with sizes are manufacturable, check product catalog to ensure PGT offers the desired size.
