Installation Instructions

Ensure the correct glass type and wind rating has been specified for the particular application.


When fixing follow these simple steps:


  1. Fit flashing to window surround as required.
  2. Frame must be packed plumb, square and not twisted between the opening. Ensure the sill is fully supported, failure to do so may result in sill roll on sliding windows.
  3. Secure aluminum windows by nailing through reveal. Timber windows should be secured by back nailing through stud, not face of frame to stud. Alternatively, on cavity brick construction use galvanised building lugs located at 450mm maximium centres.
  4. Keep sash closed whilst installing frames.
  5. Sill bricks should be at least 15mm clear of window frame to allow for settlement.
  6. Do not stand on the windows, or use them as a support for scaffolding, or slide material through the frame.
  7. Do not permit weight of eaves or arch bars to bear on aluminium or timber frames.
  8. Remove cement mortar dropping from windows immediately, taking care to avoid scratching glass and frames, as permanent damage can result.

No guarantee will be given if aluminium painted surfaces come into contact with acid when cleaning brickwork. Refer Terms and Conditions of Sale for full details.


On Site Care

Window Storage

1) On site, windows and doors should be stored in a clean dry area free from cement, lime, paint, acid etc.


During installation they must be protected from building fall-out such as wet plaster, mortar, paint and welding splatter.

Protect window and frame surfaces with plastic

2) Remove wet plaster, cement, mortar and other droppings immediately, using ample clean water and a sponge or rag, to avoid permanent staining or scratching of finished surfaces

Clean windows if they have any cement splatter immediately

3) If removal is delayed and scraping becomes necessary the surface finish may suffer. Door tracks and window sills should be protected from planks, scaffolding and barrows, and kept clean of grit and dirt.

Note if scrapping becomes necessary be very careful as it may cause damage

4) Acid used for cleaning brickwork must be prevented from dripping onto aluminium or timber surfaces. Should this fail the acid must be immediately washed off with ample clean water.

Clean with clean water and a sponge or rag

5) If strippable coatings or pressure sensitive tapes are used to protect exposed surfaces, care must be taken not to damage the finish during their removal.

Prolonged exposure to sunlight can make them increasingly difficult to remove.
