The new “Guide to planning and implementing the installation of windows and entry doors in new build and refurbishment” was published in March 2014 to coincide with the fensterbau/frontale trade fair. This was the 5th revised edition of the guide, the first edition of which was published in 1994. It was initially conceived as a convenient summary in paperback form for use on building sites as a substitute for the unwieldy 200-page book “Installation according to the RAL quality assurance guidelines for windows and entry doors”.


A lot has changed since the first edition was published. Gradually the guide has been revised over the years to take account of changes in normative documents, new, tougher requirements and new products relevant to installation, and experience gained in the course of everyday installation practice. Many associations and institutions have also got involved, incorporating the guide into their own guidelines.


The “handy” guide is now fatter than ever, with around 300 pages! A convenient paperback has therefore been created especially for use by window installers on-site, containing key information and tips from the “Installation guide” textbook.


In addition to editorial changes to the guide, the following chapters have also been revised and expanded.


The complete text incl. pictures is available for downloading as PDF file.
