Default Concessions Window Design

I post this here for the people in the business, please move if I should have put it somewhere else. So I am still working on my trailer (almost done), there was not much info on the web about making window set ups when I researched it other than pic's you all sent me (and thanks for helping). So my neighbor has an awsome wood shop and is very talented at woodworking and he made designed and made the framing for me. I hope this helps anyone who has to do it themselves.


This one is for the 3 x 6 window


They are two piece and have these T nuts to fasten them together.


Me drilling the holes with self tapping metal screws to secure the base half of the frame permanatly to the wall.


Counter sinking the screw heads so the other half of the frame is flush with this half. You can see the T nuts where the second half bolts up with 1/4 inch bolts.


The finished product, I made the screen frames from strips I got at Lowes, they also sell the angle pieces for the corners. Then I put the screen in which was easy. Just don't put the screen too tight or the frame will twist. The upper groove in the frame is deeper than the bottom so to remove the screen I just lift up and kick it out on the bottom. The screen is two pieces that slide independantly of each other. I could easily slip a plexiglass piece in for cool weather sliders.

In Michigan the window should be self closing or else they require an air curtain that will keep the bugs out. Did you check with the HD on what they want in VA?

Looks better than my last homemade one.

Rule is window self closing. If you vend on the west side hope you don't get inspected as theyh will write you up for a major infraction.

I have a self closing window plus a screen. Reality is I can pin the window open and just slide the screen but they need to see it's self closing. Gravity feed is acceptable.

That is so weird!Today I started trying to come up with something for my windows becuase of the postion of the gas shocks so was thinking maybe I could do some kinda framework around the opening and low and behold here is just what I was thinking of.Do you know if your woodworker bought the wood with the channels already routed or did they do that him/her self? and what are you using for "glass" store bought windows or....?

No the grooves were not in it, her did it himself. There is a 1/4" groove on the bottom and sides and 3/4" on top so that to remove the sliders you pick up the slider and kick it out on the bottom and then pull down and remove. For now I made screen sliders by going to Lowes and getting the screen window framing system and corner pieces and cutting them to the deminsions I wanted. But later I will probably put plexiglass in for sliders.
