Shadow Glass

Basics

Recommended Posts

Lots of schools are requesting security film. The bondkap company out of Florida has their attachment system along with those backer rods? What are those for? Should I be pulling the big rubber gaskets of the aluminum framing if I get these school windows? I was hoping it would be applying the Film and applying the 995 sealant to the film and frame. Not pulling gaskets.

Yeah, to meet certain GSA specs or qualifications the rubber gasket should be removed and backer rod stuffed in the void to hold the glass and back up the wet glaze.

 

Pulling rubbers really isn’t rocket science or labor consuming. Just a hook tool and a few seconds per window. I remove and reinstall them on pretty much every commercial job.
