1. Cut the aperture and ensure that the aperture is square cornered, remove any dust or debris from the aperture lining.
2. Remove the liner from the packaging, cut the liner to the required length. Remove the release paper from the liner and apply to the cut aperture.  Apply even pressure during application to activate the adhesive properties of the self-adhesive system.
3. Having prepared the timber beads to the required dimensions, remove the glazing seal from its packaging. Peel the yellow release paper from the seal and apply to the face of the bead. The glazing cap should overlap the top of the timber bead. The bead should be manufactured from hardwood with a minimum density of 610kg/m3 Ash and Beech are not permissible for use in 60minute glazing.
4. Mitre the beads to the correct length and push into the aperture to ensure a tight fit. Having now installed the beads, the beads can now be mechanically fixed into position. Using 50mm long screws (No.8) at 150mm centres.
5. Working from the reverse, push the glass into the aperture, ensure that the glazing fin does not fold inward on itself. Repeat step 4 and ensure that all screws are securely fastened. Screws may be either exposed using screw cups or where aesthetic finishes are required screws maybe recessed and finished.
