Detail Library – New Details August 2022

New Details

This latest set of details explores window detailing. We look at positioning the window to create different reveals. This set shows a masonry construction, with window positioned flush with the external finish, a half brick reveal, a full brick reveal and the window aligned with the structure. We also show a wide 150mm cavity option too.

The position of the window within the structure can provide different shading options, aesthetics and performance. Here we demonstrate some typical window positions.

There are some examples of the details below.
