What is the 4055 tool?

The AS 4055 Online Tool has been developed by the Australian Window Association to provide a simple and easy method of obtaining wind classifications for housing. It is for the exclusive use of its members and should ideally be used in conjunction with the window’s purchaser.

Once the rating has been calculated the tool produces a certificate that lists all the data that was used as well as the results. This certificate can be used as evidence to support the selection of both the glass and the windows.

Efficient glazing tools allow you to make informed decisions about the windows and glazed doors you are purchasing for your house.

About the tool

Users will need:

  • access to the internet,
  • flash installed,
  • a copy of AS 4055 (Copies can be purchased through the AWA),
  • familiarity with Google Earth.

The 4055 Tool is another initiative from the Australian Window Association (AWA). designed to inform and simplify compliance to the National Construction Code and Australian Standards.
