For installation methods not covered in this guide, (i.e. through jamb) please visit the Architect Detail File on the web ( Andersen has no responsibility in regard to the post-manufactured assembly and installation of Andersen products. Using ladders and/or scaffolding and working at elevated levels may be hazardous. Follow equipment manufacturer's instructions for safe operation. Use extreme caution when working around window and door openings. Falling from opening may result in personal injury or death. Improper use of hand/power tools could result in personal injury and/or product damage. Follow manufacturer's instructions for safe operation of equipment. Always wear safety glasses. Weight of window/door unit(s) and accessories will vary. Use a reasonable number of people with sufficient strength to lift, carry, and install window and door unit(s) and accessories. Always use appropriate lifting techniques. 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 silicone 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. Andersen and Andersen WindowCare are registered trademarks of Andersen Corporation.
