After straightening the frame, locate the anchor locations with reference to frame. Locate anchors on
both sides of each frame corner at 6" from the corner. Locate anchors on both sides of each vertical
and horizontal mullion at 6" from the mullion centerline. Locate intermediate anchors at a maximum
spacing of 12" on center in between the corner and mullion anchors unless you have shop drawings
that show a different spacing.
Typical anchor spacing – composite (one piece) frames

Install anchors at spacing shown in Figure 5 and Figure 6 or as indicated on Kommerling shop
drawings. If no shop drawings are provided, follow anchor spacing shown.
Place the anchor in the groove so it can be turned clockwise. You cannot turn the anchors
counterclockwise.

Bend the anchor 1" towards the center of the window/door. DO NOT over-bend. If you bend them more
than 1”, you may have problems with the installation later.
Continue to install the other anchors using the same technique.
4 Install Frames into openings
STOP AND READ BEFORE PROCEEDING!
Measure the rough opening to ensure that it will allow installation of the window in a square,
plumb, and level condition in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. If the opening
will not allow correct installation, correct these deficiencies before proceeding.
Check that the fenestration products are the correct size and type for the opening,
including tolerances for plumb, level, and square installation.
Verify that all interfacing components (such as panning systems, drip caps or moldings, and
other weather barrier systems) have been installed.
Follow the handling instructions in this document and on the Kommerling sticker that appears
on each frame.
For frames with hinges, make sure to position the frame in a way that will allow finish materials
to clear the edge of hinge by at least 1/4". When jamb finish materials are thicker than 1/2" you
may need to reposition the hinge side of the frame farther from the rough opening to allow
finish materials to clear the edge of hinge by at least 1/4".

4.1 Position support shims
Kommerling recommends using composite or stackable plastic non-compression shims of different
thicknesses to achieve the correct placement of the window in the rough opening.
Minimum shim size: 2" x 1-1/2".
Place sill support shims under each frame where shown in the following diagrams. Adjust thickness of
sill shims to ensure frame is level, straight, and plumb. Do not bend frames by forcing shims into place.
Adjust the height of the shims to ensure there is a minimum 1/2" (13 mm) gap at the head.
Place lateral support shims at the jambs where shown in the following diagrams. Jamb shims are
required near the tops of jambs opposite to the hinge side to prevent the frames from moving sideways
from the weight of window sashes.
For fixed (non-operable) windows place shims 4 inches in from each corner and 4 inches from the
center of each mullion to support the weight of the glass. These positions align the shims with the glass
supports insid
