General Information

The Botanica™ Garden Window was designed as a completely new product, not an adaptation of an old system and features several unique details that will set it apart from the competition.

Extensive market research and over 70 years of industry experience went into the design. The goal was to architecturally engineer a unique window that would both be aesthetically pleasing and solve many of the problems inherent with the adapted older designs on the market today.

The front opening sash concept increases the structural strength of the overall framing system to reduce or eliminate the need for underside supports. Keeping in true FEN-TECH tradition, custom sizes are always available.

*Product as shown has optional extension jamb staining to match seat board laminate.

Test Results

Below are the results of the test window
Water Rating
DP 80, the highest rating AAMA recognizes
This rating is the equivalent of 8" of rain per hour, or 5 gallons per square foot with a 69 mph wind
Structural Rating
DP 60 (overload rating of DP 90)
This rating is the equivalent of a 190 mph wind tested with both positive (inward) and negative (outward) force
For comparison, a category 5 hurricane has a wind speed of 157 mph or more
Air Rating
This rating equates to .01 cubic foot per minute per square foot of exterior surface area of air infiltration with a 25 mph wind
Load Test
This equates to a .01 inch sag in the bottom front of the window with a load of 8 pounds per square foot calculated over the area of the glass shelf and seat board combined (85 pounds in this particular test)
