INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

The surface on which side plates of aluminium profile will be placed must be smooth and free from contamination, so that, the side plates, provided with neoprene cellular strips, lie firmly on the base. Then profiles are aligned and fixed by screws and dowels (on both sides at distance of 30 cm).
If joints are on the inside of the building, it is sufficient to glue the profiles in place with our special adhesive (Kleber).
Screws are not necessary.
Always leave a gap of approx. 5 mm at the butt joints of the aluminium profiles.
After installation a permanently flexible sealing compound should be applied

 

to these gaps.
When flexible insert is longer than

8/10 m, it is necessary to fix this, to avoid sliding.
