BOCA/Non-BOCA Hardware, Door Vertical Installation
To figure out the number of hardware kits that you need use one of the following two formulas:
Florida Building Code. According to the code you need a hardware set spaced at a minimum of one every 12 inches. Count the number of both full and half panes for the window then add 1.
(Number of panels) + 1 = Quantity needed.
BOCA. This Standard call for a hardware set every 6 inches. Count the number of full Panels and multiply by 2, add 1 set for each half panel and then add one.
(Number of full panels and multiply by 2) + (Number of half panels) + 1 = Quantity needed.
For additional strength you may choose to use a modified Florida building code by adding an additional set to double up on hardware sets at both ends of each panel.
