These windows are officially called and Emergency Escape and Rescue Opening and must meet local codes. The International Residential Code also sets some minimums for egress window openings, height and distance from the floor. The sizes for window openings differ depending on where the bedroom is located: basement, main level or upper story. Openings are designed to allow for a fully-equipped firefighter to enter a structure in the event of a fire. Size does matter when it comes to planning for an egress opening during a remodel, but it isn t the only issue with when it comes to the safety of an escape plan. It is essential in an emergency that these windows operate easily. A properly-sized egress window should be operable from the inside without the use of keys, tools, hardware or special knowledge, said one Inspector. To meet this requirement, a person should be able to unlock the window in one motion, open it in one motion and exit quickly. Two other things to consider with a basement egress window concern the outdoor window well. The size is important to making a quick exit and having proper drainage will help keep water out of the basement. back to the top Noteworthy News Sometimes seeing through walls, or in the dark, is possible even without superpowers. Looking inside the walls of a building is done using a special camera, called an infrared or thermographic camera that takes pictures based on heat levels rather than light. These heat signature images can help firefighters find hotspots, assist wildlife biologists wanting to track nocturnal movements of deer and help police helicopter pilots track fleeing suspects at night. Thermal imaging has also been used in energy auditing of buildings to located heat loss, indicating where to shore up insulation or to detect a leak in a wall or pipe. Leaks often show up as cooler areas in the pictures. They have even been used to search for lost pets who accidentally found their way into the walls. Using the thermal imaging camera requires a seasoned, certified operator because of the importance of properly calibrating and reading images created by the camera. An error in a reading can result in money lost fixing a non-existing problem. However, a correct reading can pinpoint a leak and reduce the need to break through multiple ceilings and walls in search of a leak. back to the top Did You Know? The Romans were the first people known to use glass for windows around 100 AD. However, these cast windows had poor optical qualities. Even the brilliantly colored stained-glass windows of the Middle Ages didn t let church-goers see out. Instead, they told stories from the religious texts. Making flat sheets of transparent glass required advances in technology and tools.
