Traditionally, in Denmark, a cill is not part of the window. Most often you will see a brick cill as part of the wall construction, leading the water away from the wall.
So therefore, in Denmark, windows are supplied without any form of cill as part of the window.
That is why Klarvindu, as standard, adds an 18mm timber packer to the bottom of the windows, so that you can fit an aluminium cill pressing of your choice. If you do not wish to have a cill packer fitted, you can choose so when configuring your windows.
This is how it will typically work, when installing aluminium cill pressings on Scandinavian style windows. The aluminium cill is screwed directly into the timber cill packer that we fit to our windows.
What is aluminium cill pressings?

Can I use hardwood or stone cills with your Scandinavian windows?
If you wish to fit your window on a hardwood or stone cill you can ask us not to fit the standard cill packer.
When you ask us not to fit the cill packer we will automatically add the 18 mm to the height of your windows.
Please note: When installing windows with hardwood or stone cill you should still follow our measuring guidelines - but then also subtract the height of the cill you are using.
