The window position should be set to eliminate or minimise tile cutting.Tiling should finish with handed external angle tiles cut every alternate course to fit the frame.
The cut angle tile will require an additional fixing to maintain security.
The joint between the tiles and the window frame should be bedded in mastic.
The first counterbatten should be positioned approximately 20mm in from the end of the tiling battens to prevent the end nail fixing from splitting the tile batten.
(This detail works best where counterbattens are not used)
