A reveal is a timber surround fitted to our aluminium window frame and is used to install our windows into timber framing. Essentially the reveal becomes the frame of the window covering the stud. Often architraves attach to the reveal to cover the gap between the reveal and the plasterboard (or internal lining).
Our reveals are made from meranti hardwood (primed, but not painted). Please note that reveals are not necessary as our windows can be fitted directly through the frame, however, some builders prefer reveals. As such, we provide two ways of fitting the reveal to our windows as shown below. We can custom cut the timber reveal to any size required (165mm and 175mm is most common).
Any questions just ask us.
