Climate Seal Training – North Carolina
The most important part of the installation is determining the proper type and location of the metal sub-frame. The magnetic inserts then adhere to this sub- frame to create an air-tight seal.
Next, you must ensure that you are installing the sub-frame in an even and level plane. The installer shown here is measuring the distance from the face of the sub-frame to the edge of the casing trim to ensure everything is plumb and level.
Once everything is aligned, installation of the metal sub-frame is usually achieved with some self-tapping pan head #6 3/4″ screws.
Note: There are many ways to mount the sub-frame, but this option is the most standard.
Once the unit has been “dry fitted” into the opening to ensure a proper fit, the unit must be polished with an acrylic rated cleanser. This step ensures the following: anti-static, free of any debris or dirt, helps to resist sratching, polishes and protects.
The finished insert is shown here. In addition to drastically increasing the thermal efficiency, the Climate Seal's magnetic frame is incredibly narrow at only 3/4″. This ensures that the daylight opening has not shrunk and your eyes focus on the exterior views and not the newly installed interior storm window.
If it were not for the removable handles, it would be hard to identify the Climate Seal product in place.
