|The New York Local Law 11 of 1998 mandates the periodic inspection of the exterior walls and appurtenances of buildings greater than six stories in height. LL 11/98 and 1 RCNY 32-03 concern the conditions including "significant deterioration, and movement observed as well as a statement concerning the apparent water-tightness of the exterior surfaces, and the deleterious effect of exterior appurtenances, including exterior fixtures, flagpoles, signs, parapets, copings, guard rails, window frames, window guards, window air conditioners, flower boxes, etc."
Window air conditioners should be both water tight so as not to allow exterior water into the building and firmly installed so as not to cause damage to a structure due to movement.
XStar models should meet these requirements if properly installed. However, if you want to add a window bracket, you can purchase a WIKQ window installation kit that contains exterior window brackets. Contact our Northeast Regional Parts Depot at (718) 545-4896 or an authorized parts dealer.|
