Scotts adopts a dry, drained and vented glazing system in accordance with the glass and glazing federation requirements and this enables double glass unit suppliers to offer a 10-year warranty on the glass units that are fitted into Scotts products.
Glazing clips are used to hold the glass in place in the rebate. This dual-purpose clip that locates into a groove in the frame rebate ensures regulatory compliant security and also acts as a carrier for the internal beading which means you’ll never see pinholes in the bead.
Scotts products are internally glazed using a glazing tape and each piece of glass is perfectly cleaned prior to glazing to ensure optimum adhesion of the tapes.
Scotts adopts an ‘applied bar’ system when it comes to glazing bars on the New Build Range of external windows and doors. On the outside face of the window the chamfered external bars are designed to ensure fast water run-off and replicate a traditional putty effect and these are traditionally jointed to the sash frame. The double glass unit is then glazed in the factory from the inside with a matching integral spacer bar configuration inside the cavity of the unit.
Finally, the internal ovolo or lambs tongue profiled glazing bar is then produced as a one-piece internal grille (that ensures all scribed joint are perfectly formed) that is located onto the glazing clip and pushed securely into place.
Integral and perimeter spacer bars within the cavity of the glass units are available in white (standard) and black (option) and suitable for windows with either 21mm or 18mm glazing bars. The unit depths for the high-performance glass units we use for the New Build Range is 24.8mm (4mm tough: 14mm Argon: 6.8mm laminate) or 24mm (4mm tough: 16mm Argon: 4mm tough).
