The WANZ Guide to Window Installation as described in E2/AS1 Amendment 5 ****** New Download ******
The objective of this document is an attempt to offer a better understanding of window and door installation as described in E2/AS1 Amendment 5.
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 to the end user. This is what WANZ 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.
