Following on from Timber facings on aluminium joinery in the last Build, we now look at sill options for the details. In Build 167, pages 33-34 we published two options for head and jamb details that incorporate timber facing boards to an aluminium window installed into a cavity cladding system.
The final part of the installation is the sill detail. It must:
- ensure water is discharged at the sill from the wall and window surfaces
- provide a horizontal line to terminate the base of the vertical facings.
