What is AS2047

What is AS2047

The AS2047 Standard is the mandatory minimum specification by the BCA for windows and doors used in Australia. It includes compliance to the Glass Standard AS 1288.

AS2047 accreditation has not only been achieved, but exceeded on a wide range of our products*, in order to maintain this we invest in continuous product research and development.

Our product lines * have been tested on an N.A.T.A approved test facility for performance in water penetration, air infiltration and the ultimate strength of the window assembly.

The following tests have been undertaken to verify our products performance.

 AS 4420.2 Deflection Test - positive and negative wind pressures are applied to the face of the window to test the maximum deflection under wind load.

AS 4420.3 Operating Force Test - to verify that an opening sash is capable of opening and closing without undue effort.

AS 4420.4 Air Infiltration Test - the air leakage of a window is tested to ensure energy and acoustic efficiency.

AS 4420.5 Water Penetration Resistance Test - this test is designed to ensure no water leaks through the window into the building.

AS 4420.6 Ultimate Strength Test - negative and positive wind pressures are applied to the window to at least 1.5 times the design wind pressure to ensure it does not fail in unusual wind conditions.


If further clarification is required, we have individual NATA certification data sheets on each window type available.

* Pivot door systems have not been tested to date, an approved design is in progress.

  It is your responsibility to ensure your window manufacturer has compliance to AS 2047.
