|Horizontal mounting (Sill or ledge sticks out)|
|If you have a window or sliding glass door with a sill or ledge, we recommend installing the panels horizontally. The panels can be mounted directly to the wall or the 2" x 2" studded angles can be used on each side.|

|Layout your window before drilling.
Assuming the window has a width of 38" and a height of 51", we will be
installing 5 panels at 46". Four panels would only give us coverage of
approximately 49.5". If you do not have room for 5 panels (61.5"),
one panel could be over lapped for a 4.5 panel fit. The half panels
(6") are also available in aluminum .050. We must add 6" to 8" to the width of the
window to determine the length of our panels. If we were to add 8",
our panels length would be 46".
1. Since the window has a sill, the first panel must rest on the sill. Center one panel on the window and mark a dot in the center of the bottom keyhole on the panels. If the window does not have a sill, center the panels from top to bottom over the window or door.
2. Remove the panel from the top of the sill.
3. Using a level and a tape measure, mark the wall every 12" from the bottom to the top. Assuming we are working on the left side of the window, you should have six vertical dots on your wall.
4. Using a level, line up one of the dots on the left side and draw a thin line about 2" to 3" past the window on the right side.
5. Place your tape measure on the dot on the left side and measure over to the right 44" (length of the panel - 2") and place a dot on the horizontal line.
6. Follow the procedure in step 3 to mark your vertical dots on the right side.

|The holes in the panel are keyhole shape to allow the panel to be installed without taking the screws completely out. The center of the hole is 1" from the bottom||Keyhole washers are used to reinforce the head of the combo truss head over the keyhole in the panels.|
