The system weatherproofing is fitted to the steel or aluminium attachment profiles once fitted to the construction, with the glass/panels fitted onto the glass retaining mounts. The pressure plate including system weatherproofing will be fitted on the outside by means of stainless steel locking screws in conjunction with gaskets/spacers guarantee a controlled locking pressure for the system weatherproofing.
