    Is there a simple drawing to show how to instal windows in EWI layer? Our supplier is suggesting installing them in the blockwork, but I believe from reading here that best practice is to bring them further forward into EWI using brackets. A nice diagram might help persuade them if anyone has one already prepared.
    Build up is:

    Render - Graphite EPS - Block - plaster.

    Also the thermal conductivity of Graphite EPS is 0.030 isn't it?

    Thanks

    Andy

    I made my windows bigger than the openings and fixed them to the outside of the blockwork. Nice to overlap the ewi a bit over the outside of the frame. A head drip on the render is an absolute must.

    My previous post after Nick's seems to have disappeared? Thanks again, this was just what I needed. I've forwarded to window manufacturer and await their response. Tony what wood did you use?
