Multiple Glazing Input Screen:
Another new feature for Deluxe users of Window Glass Design is
the multiple glazing input. The multiple lite input window allows
the user to perform multiple designs in one window. The user enters the
width, height, wind load, snow load, glazing angle, edge support, and
the pre-defined lite description (from the lite manager). The program
then calculates the results in the same window. The user can right
click on any row to view the design report or design details for the
The lite manager is used in conjunction
with the multiple lite window. The lite manager allows the user to

configurations are then stored in a database on the computer and can be
used and reused without the user ever having to redefine the lite
The Results window displays the final
