window frame
by: matt

Thats a great help, thank you.
A little unsure with the rebar sitting into the window frame.
Yes, I understand it goes from side to side.
Is the purpose of it sitting into the side of the window frame to take pressure away from the top of the panel transfering to the lower panel?

Yes, as well as preventing the window from "oil canning", a term used for moving in and out with wind, as well as differences in air pressure from within the building such as a door being opned and closed, or slammed.

I read somewere that this was true for the saddle bars in churches and the function of that was to stop the windows from blowing inside?
Very True

thanks again for your help
