Using 6 x 20 mm profile specialist glazing tapes, the IGU’s are cushioned thus allowing them to “float”. This means the weather tight seals are maintained and the glass is protected as the green oak frame dries out and moves. All weather seals are BBA Certified to provide longevity too.
In addition, free running drainage is built into the system extending the life of the IGU’s. This also prevents the buffeting effect which drives trapped water through the secondary seal.
Finally, hidden under the dry oak coverboards, copper flashings are used on the horizontal members and profiled on site in one continuous length using specialist machinery. This prevents water collecting on ledges of the frame.
