INSTALLATION NOTES
- Allow 1/4" shim and sealant space at sides and top of door frame.
- Door opening must be plumb, square, level and true.
- Aluminum to be placed in direct contact with uncured masonry or
incompatible materials should be isolated with a heavy coat of zinc
chromate or bituminous paint.
- System to structure fasteners are not supplied by Wausau.
Tubelite. Due to the
varying perimeter conditions and performance requirements perimeter anchors
Wausau. Fasteners
fasteners are not specified in these instructions or by Tubelite.
called out on shop drawings are to indicate minimum sizes for design
loading.
- Install backer rod between frame and building opening then seal.
- Wausau
Tubelite recommends snap in backs for added support and
stability.
- Sealants must be compatible will all materials with which they have contact,
including other sealant surfaces. Consult with sealant manufacturer.
- Ensure that the threshold is supported the entire length of threshold, if not shim
as required.
- Protect erected frame. Cement, plaster, terrazzo, other alkaline solutions
and acid based materials used to clean masonry are harmful to the finish.
Final cleaning of exposed aluminum surfaces should be done in accordance
with AAMA 609.1 for anodized aluminum and 610.1 for painted aluminum.
- Due to the diversity in state/provincial local and federal laws and codes that
govern the design and application of architectural products it is the
responsibility of the individual architect owner and installer to assure that
products selected for use on projects comply with all applicable building
codes and laws. Wausau
Tubelite exercises no control over the use or application
of its products, glazing materials and operating hardware and assumes no
responsibility thereof.
