About This Item


Full Description

This is the third edition of CAN/CSA-A440.4, Window, door, and skylight installation. It supersedes the previous editions published in 2007 and in 1998 under the title Window and door installation.

The Standard has been extensively rewritten to include up-to-date installation materials and techniques. The members of the Subcommittee have attempted to strike a balance between performance and prescriptive requirements for the window installation techniques described in this Standard.

In general, an objective performance approach has been taken with detailed prescriptive requirements given only for installation methods that, in the experience of the Subcommittee members, require special attention to avoid problems with fenestration products after installation. The intent is to allow flexibility to adapt to the wide variety of existing installation practices and different wall and roof construction techniques and preferences, and to give guidance for new construction techniques and installation practices that, inevitably, will emerge over time.

This Standard was developed to address issues that can adversely affect the performance of fenestration products when installed in building walls and roofs.

This Standard sets forth methods for both new installation and replacement installation of factory assembled windows, exterior doors, and skylights that are intended for installation in low-rise buildings and buildings used primarily for, but not limited to, residential occupancy where the windows, doors, and skylights (including window wall) are R, LC, or CW class within the application of AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440.

Note: The effectiveness, safety, and durability of installed fenestration products depend on the choice and quality of materials and design, adequate assembly, the support system, and proper installation. Improper installation of fenestration products might reduce their effectiveness, including excessive condensation; unacceptably high levels of air, water, and sound leakage; and deterioration of the wall and roof systems into which they are installed.

This Standard provides minimum requirements for the installation of fenestration products including windows, doors, and skylights. This Standard addresses issues that could compromise the performance of the fenestration product as established by testing to the requirements of AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440. Where installation methods are not specifically addressed in this Standard or in the installation instructions of the manufacturer of a fenestration product, a design professional should be consulted for a solution consistent with the intent of the minimum requirements and principles in this Standard.

The application of this Standard requires a working knowledge of applicable federal, provincial, and local (municipal) building codes and regulations specifically concerning, but not limited to, required means of egress and requirements for safety glazing.
