5. Installation of Mounting Brackets and
First Sealing Strip
NOTE: Windows come in a variety of different
styles. Therefore, it may be necessary to modify
or improve your particular installation.
A. Attach the bracket assembly to 90 angle support
brackets (Fig. 5) using (2) 1 1/2" bolts
Two bolts per bracket. Secure with the (2)
1/4" lock washers and (2) 1/4"nuts. DO NOT
immediately tighten these bolts as it may be
necessary to adjust the depth of the bracket
assembly, depending on the depth of your window sill.
See (Fig. 7).Install the two leveling screws into the
90 support brackets. Test the bracket assembly in the
window before cabinet installation. If the leveling
screws are distanced too far away from the wall to
provide stability, it may be necessary for you to fill
this area with a solid piece of wood. See (Fig. 8).
(2) 3/4" screws per bracket
Outer Wall Construction
B. Measure the inside window sill width and find the
center as shown in (Fig. 6). Align the V-slot in each
bracket on these marks and mount the brackets to the
sill using 3/4" screws provided. Brackets should be
perpendicular to the inside window sill. See (Fig. 6).
C. For proper condensation run-off it will be necessary
to adjust the angle/pitch of the window brackets. This is
accomplished by adjusting the distance of the leveling
screw on the outer wall. The maximum angle/pitch
should not exceed more than 3/16". See (Fig.7).
Use a solid piece of wood to provide stability. This
will be required when sills are extra deep.
See (Fig. 8).
Solid Piece Wood
Measurement for Model 10K =9 .6"
Measurement for Model 12K = 10.3"
Measurement for Model 15K to 24K = 12.6"
D. Cut the seal strip to fit the underside of the bottom
window sash. Remove the peel-off backing on the
seal and attach it to this sash. See (Fig. 9).
Measurement for Model 8K = 7.5"
