What is a reveal?

The reveal is a timber surround fitted to the fin of the window or door and used for installing the product into timber framing.  The reveal becomes the internal frame of your window otherwise known as the ‘window sill’ or door covering the stud. The architrave attaches to the reveal to cover the gap between the reveal and the plasterboard (or internal lining).  A variety of reveal sizes are available depending on your construction type. Refer to our Reveal Size Chart for more information and also see our Measuring Diagrams for brick and clad home applications.

The size of the reveal is the combined width of the timber stud, the internal lining and cavity (for brick veneer). Wideline recommends you discuss reveal sizes with your builder before organising quotes or ordering windows.
