    Instructions are for typical, new wood-framed wall construction with weather protection in place.

    Instructions may not be right for all installations due to building design, construction materials or methods used and/or building or site conditions. Consult a contractor or architect for recommendations.

    Flanges on the unit alone will not properly flash and seal the window. Follow these instructions carefully.

    For questions call 1-888-888-7020 Monday - Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. central time.

    Unless specifically ordered, Andersen windows and doors are not equipped with safety glass, and if broken, could fragment causing injury. Many laws and building codes require safety glass in locations adjacent to or near doors. Andersen windows are available with safety glass that may reduce the likelihood of injury when broken. Information on safety glass is available from your local Andersen dealer.

    Andersen Head Flashing and Installation Flanges DO NOT take the place of standard window and door flashing. Unit must be properly flashed and sealed with sealant for protection against water and air infiltration. Use non-reflective flashings. Highly reflective flashing tapes can raise the surface temperature of the vinyl to the point where vinyl deformation and product damage may occur.

    Do not apply any type of film to glass. Thermal stress conditions resulting in glass damage could occur.

    Use of movable insulating materials such as window coverings, shutters, and other shading devices may damage glass and/or vinyl. In addition, excessive condensation may result causing deterioration of windows and doors.

    Knee Braces

    Knee Braces

    A support system such as a cable support system, post and foundation support, knee braces, and attachment to header or soffit support must be installed to properly support projecting window units. Failure to do so could result in product damage and/or incorrect operation of units.

    When a roof or bonnet is built over unit, make sure that adequate support is provided to carry weight of roof. Failure to do so could result in product damage and/or incorrect operation of units.

    If Custom Bay Unit is being installed, use Cable Support System at every Joining Post. Failure to do so could result in product damage and/or incorrect operation of units.

    Bay unit is supported by cables attached to header, gable or eave. Cable Support System allows unit to be adjusted to overcome difficulties associated with normal building settlement. The Cable Support System in 9' and 12' versions are available through your Andersen dealer. See Cable Support System Installation Guide for proper installation.

    IMPORTANT: If Custom Bay Unit is being installed, use Cable Support System at every Joining Post.

    Install Cable Support System after Step 7 on Page 16.

    When adequate support cannot be achieved by Cable Support System or by header or soffit support or cantilever system, Knee Braces (provided by others) must be attached to structural member below each Joining Post.

    Anchor Knee Brace into structural member or install double cripple below unit and secure braces into them.

    IMPORTANT: If Custom Bay Unit is being installed, use Cable Support System at every Joining Post.

    Bay unit is supported by cantilevered floor joist or attached directly to header/soffit. Projection of cantilevered floor joist must not exceed 1/3 of overall length of support joist.

    Unit is supported by post or foundation of dwelling.

    13. Seal Exterior and Apply Side Flashing

    This instruction step depicts one of many options for proper flashing.

    Moisture infiltration problems in any type of building can be reduced by properly flashing and/or sealing around all building openings, including windows and doors. Proper flashing under and around window and door openings can reduce moisture problems, but the performance of any building system depends upon the design and construction of the building system in its entirety, which should address local environment, climate, building codes and product and material limitations. The design and installation of flashing and sealing systems are the responsibility of the architect, contractor, installer, and/or the manufacturer of the building exterior specified for the project.

    Unit must be properly flashed and sealed for protection against water and air infiltration. Use non-reflective flashings. Highly reflective flashing tapes can raise the surface temperature of the vinyl to the point where vinyl deformation and product damage may occur.
