Overview of the Standard

The purpose of AS 2047 is to prescribe the requirements for windows and external glazed doors in buildings.

This Australian Standard covers the materials, testing, construction, installation and glazing for external windows, glazed doors, adjustable louvres, shopfronts and window walls with one-piece framing elements.

What does it include?

AS 2047 is broken into 8 sections consisting of:

  • Section 1 deals with what the standard comprises of and includes references and definitions
  • Section 2 deals with the performance criteria for window assemblies which are classified by a rating system for housing, and by design wind pressures for all class of buildings
  • Section 3 deals with all the window framing and finishes
  • Section 4 deals with glazing of the window
  • Section 5 deals with all the components of the window
  • Section 6 deals with the construction of the window assembly
  • Section 7 deals with the installation requirements of a window assembly to a building which it is to be installed
  • Section 8 deals with the labelling or a certificate provided for a window assembly

The standard also contains 7 informative appendices consisting of:

  • Appendix A provides a guide on further information on wind loads for housing, and guidance to some design wind pressures for windows in all class building other than housing
  • Appendix B gives information on the environmental effects produced by the erection of the structure or installation of equipment that would need to be considered. Covers durability and corrosion
  • Appendix C provides information on the nomination of window ratings or design wind pressures for each window and door assembly
  • Appendix D details the surface finish for aluminium
  • Appendix E contains the on-site care of windows
  • Appendix F (normative) provides generic timber designs which have been developed to provide a compliance path for small timber joineries that will not require testing
  • Appendix G provides a table for generic window test results and includes the Bibliography
