Adjustment for Jamb to Jamb dimension indicates
the distance from the bottom edge of a sash
or door to the bottom edge of the sill. While
this dimension is usually uniform, variations
do occur. For example, when thicker sill stock
is required, when the sill angle of a hung sash
is modified or when the sash thickness of a
hung sash is modified, the AJJ changes. See
molding applied to the frame of a door or sash.
These moldings are generally used to highlight
the panels in a door and often extend beyond
the thickness of the door frame. Various profiles
are available. Requests for applied moldings
should include section drawings of the preferred
molding applied to the common edge of a pair
of doors or sash in a jamb. The astragal covers
the space between each door/sash and provides
a stop for each leaf to close against the other.

dimension between the outside edge of a door/sash
frame and the inside frame molding. For doors
with frame members separating panels the dimension
is the distance from frame molding to frame

TOP RAIL: Top horizontal frame member.
BOTTOM RAIL: Bottom horizontal frame member.
LOCK RAIL: Ctr, horiz. frame member typ.

triple uses three layers. The more layers of

structure bordering a door or window. The jamb
includes two sides, a top and a bottom (threshold
or sill). A door or window is attached to the
jamb with hinges, if the unit is operable. Otherwise
it is fixed with wooden stops. Fixed glass or
panels can be fixed in the jamb without a door
or sash frame.
jamb width is the dimension that relates to
the wall thickness of the building frame. Woodstone
provides a standard jamb width of 4 5/8"
for 4 1/2" walls and 6 5/8" for 6
1/2" walls to allow for variations that
often occur in the wall thickness. Jamb width

is the first sill/threshold indicator in the
specifications. The sill/thresh is either continuous
(CONT) or segmented (SEG). A continuous threshold
or sill is manufactured as a continuous piece,
even when subunits in separate jambs are stacked
together horizontally. If the sil/threshold
is segmented, each subunit will have a separate
sill/threshold that will butt together when
installed in the buildings R.O.. Continuous
thresholds are generally specified unless a
size limitation is reached or oversized stud
pockets are called for.
sill/threshold indicator defines the type of
sill/threshold and the wood species. This indicator
also determines the vertical jamb to jamb height
of the unit in which it is applied. The number
following the wood species indicates the distance
(AJJ) from the bottom of the jamb to the bottom
of the sash or door. This field also cross references
the operation of a unit (i.e.: I = INSWING,
0 = OUTSWING, S = SLIDE, F = FIXED).
modular size of the sash or door that fits within
the jamb. Windows and doors are usually trimmed
to allow for expansion within the jamb or proper
interaction with specified weather-strip. For
example 7/32" is trimmed from the listed
stile face dimension of the strike side of the
door to allow for weather-strip and bevel. The
top rail of an exterior door is trimmed 1/8"
from the listed dimension for weather-strip.
