The guide to window installation
As described in E2/AS1 amendment 8
The objective of this document is an attempt to offer a better understanding of window and door installation as described in E2/AS1 Amendment 7.
The details and drawings used within E2/AS1 to describe window and door installation are two dimensional, cross-sectional details which show a required end result. However, often a more in-depth sequential approach might describe the process better for the end user. This is what the Association have attempted to do with this document by providing a step by step guide to the details offered by this latest version of the Compliance Document E2/AS1.
This edition of the guide has added details pertaining to the installation of full height windows and doors pushed up to the soffit lining.
The Window Technical committee have developed a pair of single page fliers to aide in the understanding of the sill details for each type of construction:
