Glass architecture and design practices have advanced over the last decade with specifications for more minimal and streamlined partition systems. The range of frameless partitioning components available offer the ideal solution for creating low profile slimline internal partitions. The frameless glass partitioning components include frameless wedges for head and base systems, low profile high clarity dry joints and a revolutionary door seal.
The following guidance should be taken into consideration when installing G2G (glass to glass) partitioning.
To ensure the best bond between the G2G profile and the glass a recommended application temperature between 18 to 35 degrees centigrade is advisable.
It is recommended that where possible the joints and glass are equalised to room temperature 24 hours prior to fitting.
A quality polished edge works best for maximum bond strength. When fitting the joints on site it is important that these polished edges are clean, dust and grease free, an alcohol wipe is recommended.
it is essential that every panel is shimmed and plumbed (particularly the first panel) vertically/horizontally and centralised in the base and head channels.
It is recommended that prior to fitting the joint each following glass panel is placed side by side to check for bow and swapped for a flush panel if there are any showing this effect.
It is recommended that ratchet strap/suckers are used when fitting panels to achieve the best contact pressure.
The G2G tape has an excellent initial tack and contact bond in most conditions and strengthens to its maximum bond strength 12 hours after fitting.
The compressive qualities of the G2G tape take up tolerances variation in the glass, this can be maximised through ensuring the glass has been cut accurately on well-maintained machinery.
Please note these are for guidance only, we take no responsibility for the overall installation of a partitioning system.
Framed Glass Partitioning looks great in offices and other commercial environments.
Frameless Glass Partitioning looks very modern and is a welcome addition to offices and other commercial environments.
