Window and door schedules
In its broadest sense, the term ‘schedule’ simply refers to a list. That can be a list of items, activities, events, information, and so on. Schedules may be appended to other documents, such as contracts.
Window and door schedules are a convenient way of presenting complex information about the different door and window sizes and types that are specified on the contract documents to ensure proper installation. Drawings may refer to window and door schedules by use of a code corresponding to a door or window type on the schedule.
Typical information contained on a door schedule might include:
- Code number (which corresponds with the drawings).
- Number required.
- Size (width, height, thickness).
- Colour and finish.
- Style of hardware.
- Hinges, locks, handles, push plates, pull handles, kicker plates, vision panels, stops, closers and so on.
- Fire rating.
- Acoustic rating.
- Product series.
- Other remarks.
