INSTRUCTIONS

Surface preparation: All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from frost, grease and loose materials.

Application: Secure one set of glazing beads to act as a rebate if the opening is not already rebated. Pins or screws should be angled at 45°. Apply Firestrip® 60 on the paper along the rebate upstand of the top rebate by running the edge of the backing paper along the rebate platform so that the strip comes up to the sightline. For larger rebates it may be necessary to lift the paper above the platform to ensure that the Firestrip® 60 comes up to the sightline. Repeat the application to the sides and then the bottom rebate. Remove backing paper. Butt the corner joints, do not overlap. Position setting blocks. Centralise glass in frame on setting blocks. Press firmly around the edge of the glass to ensure that contact with the surface of Firestrip® 60 is achieved. Apply Firestrip® 60 to the glass in the same way as it was applied to the upstands by running the edge of the paper along the rebate platform or alternatively direct to the beads. Remove the backing paper. Bed the beads to the Firestrip® 60 by applying pressure to obtain good contact between the strip and the bead. Fix the beads with pins or screws in accordance with the design requirements of the installation. Pins or screws should be angled at 45° to pass beneath the glass. Trim off any Firestrip® 60 above the sight line with a sharp knife.
