Put the window on the rabbet
1. The installation of this material, easy to achieve by a hobbyist amateur, requires little preparation. After completely denuding the rabbet of the window, eliminate any leftover paint; then dust off with a brush. If the groove is greasy, use a special product such as trichlorethylene. Wipe with a dry cloth.
2. Apply all around the window a plastic tape (delivered together with the flexible bead), which will seal the assembly. To ensure good adhesion, apply regular pressure with your fingers throughout the application. Once the tape is applied to all parts to support the glass, slowly release the film from the protective paper.
3. The bottom joint thus produced, you can put the glass. In order to maintain it, plant every 30 or 50 cm of the glazier's tips. Push them vertically into the wood, so that they are parallel to the glass. Knock lightly with a hammer that you slide on the surface of the glass.
4. With the glass on the bottom gasket, secure it permanently with the adhesive tape already used at the beginning. Apply it on the angle formed by the rabbet of the window, taking particular care of the junction of each corner. "Slide" your finger along the angle formed by this rabbet to drive the ribbon in the middle.
Apply the bead
1. After, as before, peel off the protective film from the adhesive tape, clean the flexible bead. This done, grab one of the ends of the bead roll; using a pair of scissors, cut it into a tab.
2. Begin applying the flexible bead by one of the corners of the top of the window. Fit the mitered end of the bumper into the tape covering the corner of the rebate. With your fingers, press regularly on the groove of the bead along the chosen side, up to about 10 or 20 cm from the opposite corner. Then, while reserving a margin of a few millimeters, estimate the location of the cut required at the bottom corner. Cut it, always in tab.
Finish the installation of the bead.
