The guide to window installation as described in E2/AS1 amendment 7

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.

WANZ WIS

E2 VM1 (Amendment 5 Clause 1.5.3) requires that all previous Verified Solutions (such as WANZ WIS) be retested to amendment 5 as of 1 July 2013.  The Window & Glass Association chose not to re-test WANZ WIS as the E2 Amendment 5 and subsequent amendments address all of the previous concerns thus making WANZ WIS redundant.

We have national and international recognition as a highly respected, compliant, self-regulating body; this is reflected in our high membership levels, with the majority of window, door and glass businesses in New Zealand being certified members of the Association.
