Windows, doors and rooflights. Code of practice for the survey and installation of windows and external doorsets

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : March 2007



BS 8213-4 gives recommendations for the surveying and installation of non-loadbearing windows and external doorsets of any material, to be installed vertically (within 15°) into the external face of buildings. It gives guidance on the good practices necessary for the successful surveying and installation of windows and external doorsets in both new build and replacement situations.

It is primarily aimed at installations in dwellings but much of the guidance given is relevant to other types of installation.

The guidance contained in BS8213-4 may also be applied to door assemblies, but does not cover the site assembly of individual components.

BS 8213-4 does not apply to load-bearing windows,load-bearing doorsets or roof windows. It does not cover curtain or ribbon walling, although its guidance also applies to separate window and door elements within those particular types of assemblies. It does not cover good business practice issues such as warranties, complaints, etc.

BS 8213-4:2007 replaces the 1990 edition which is now withdrawn.

This is a full revision of the standard. It brings up to date the guidance given in the previous edition and takes into account the publication of a number of European Standards published since 1990.
