    Abstract

    Self-adhering flashings provide a flexible and durable material that conforms to various wall planes, particularly those occurring in recessed wall openings. New flashing methods for the window-wall interface are available for this material. These new methods for designers are illustrated with step-by-step installation details for recessed windows, flush wall openings, recessed sills, and sill pan flashings. Considerations for flashing the window-wall interface are presented. A guide specification for self-adhering flashings is included for specifiers.
