BS 7412 specifies requirements for the design, fabrication and performance of windows and glazed doorsets made from PVC-U extruded hollow profiles. It applies to windows and doorsets manufactured from PVC-U hollow profiles incorporating fusion welded corner joints.

BS 7412 applies to windows and doors fabricated into frames in a factory, to be installed vertically (within 15°) into the external face of buildings, as single or multi-light units, in coupled assemblies when appropriate, of the following types:

    1. Windows:
          a. Hinged: side-hung (open in or out), top-hung (open out), bottom-hung
              (open in), tilt and turn or turn before tilt;
          b. Projecting: side-hung (open in or open out) and top-hung (open out or
              reversible);
          c. Pivoted: horizontal and vertical (hung centrally or off-centre)including
              reversible;
          d. Sliding: horizontal and vertical;
          e. Side-hung: fully reversible;
          f. Fixed light;
    2. Doors:
          a. Single leaf single-swing doors with or without side lights and top panels;
          b. Double leaf single-swing doors with or without side lights and top panels.

It is applicable to assemblies in which any frame member is not longer than 3 m. It does not apply to curtain walls that span across horizontal structural members of floors but is applicable to windows within a curtain walling system.

This British Standard supersedes BS 7412:2002, which will be withdrawn in December 2008.
