The standard window sill is supplied with a 25mm upstand a 25mm downstand, however, also available with a 40mm downstand.
How do I know what depth I need?
This is a question we can help with, generally speaking if you have a wall depth of say 350mm, it would depend on where the window is sitting within the opening. For example: if the front edge of the window is sitting 150mm from the external face. You may have battens externally and cladding on top of the battens (30mm in total).
You would add the 150mm, plus the 30mm – however, we require a 30mm minimum overhang to allow the water to drain away from the face of the building. We also have 8mm rebate on the sill of the window for the external window sill to be fixed too.
So what size do we need?
- 8mm sill rebate
- 150mm from externall wall
- 30mm of batten/cladding
- 30mm overhang
Total window sill depth required is 8+150+30+30 = 218mm – this means we need to order the window sill at 225mm depth.
Gutmann window sill are supplied with a number of different end caps, dependant on the type of finish you are using and the type of build. For example, a rendered or cladded house will require a different type of end cap from a house where the window sits between the brick opening.
The following end caps are available, Ecowin use as standard B254 or B256
Not every window sill is going to be straight, you may need to go around a corner, or you may have a little jut out and the cill needs to go around this detail. We can supply different shapes, designs and custom sill when required. Some of the special shapes available can be viewed below.
