Issue 48 – April 2013
BRANZ is often asked the question, 'Where can I obtain details for timber window installations to support their use as an alternative method when applying for a building consent?' BRANZ has a suite of Weathertight Solutions Details. This suite includes construction details for timber joinery for use with timber bevel-back and rusticated (cavity and direct-fixed) weatherboards, stucco, brick veneer, solid masonry, and both vertical and horizontal profiled metal. Timber sections are based on the profiles given in NZS 3610:1979 Specification for profiles of mouldings and joinery. Users can view the details online before purchase.
Summarised from BRANZ Guideline, March 2013.
