    • Profiles and gaskets will accommodate double glazed units of thickness 28mm

    Construction

    • Frame members are mitre cut at 45 degrees and faces coated with a suitable gap sealer using internal extruded aluminium corner cleats together with a gluing compound.
    • Members are abutted and securely jointed by mechanical or crimped means.
    • Transoms and mullions are end milled to shape and mechanically secured to frame members by means of self tapping screws driven in screw receptacles in the profile or by means of internal cleats.
    • All mechanical joints shall be sealed against entry of water.
    • All fixings used in construction shall be either stainless steel, aluminium alloy or other suitable corrosion resistant materials.

    Hardware

    • All opening vents are hung on concealed stainless steel variable angled friction stays and fitted with espagnolette type locking handles.
    • To limit the opening restrictor stays shall be fitted.

    Glazing
