fitting very narry dg window


Postby pacman » Tue Sep 28, 2010 8:27 pm

hi, I have some narrow pvc windows to fit. The frame size is 340mm x1160mm and the gap slightly wider.

Now I can't fit my drill in that gap to drill horizontally to the blockwork.

Does anyone know of a small SDS drill including the bit that could fit in that space?

thanks in advance

fix metal cleats (brackets) to the pvc vertically on each side of the pvc frame before fitting,and fix to the window reveals, your able to angle the drill and fix the brackets to the brickwork rather than drill through the frame.

thanks welsh brickie

are cleats and lugs the same thing?

are there universal ones or do you need to get ones to fit the particular extrusion the windows are made of?

most prob synseal 70mm extrusions.

cheers

you can use anything really, I have used wallplate straps cut to size so long as they are galvanised.There are proffesionally made stainless steel ones also,but are expensive
