CUTTING PROFILES

Please note the general instructions:

1.Make sure to have a sharp cutting blade and a clean surface

2.Regularly check cutting accuracy of sawing machine

3.Follow catalogue instructions for correct clamping blocks and clamping orientation of profile

Cutting Profiles

VENT PROFILE
  • Align and set clamping blocks for vent profiles

Integrated double casement

Hidden Drainage

Frames (no transoms!):
  1. Measure and indicate positions of drainage holes on frames
  2. Drainage hole of 8mm can be drilled or milled with a CNC machine. No punch tools available.
  3. On glass side of profile cut away rills on insulation bar (8mm wide), with a 50mm offset from drainage hole of the frame or transom. Rills can be cut with a plyer, milled with a CNC or router.
 
Vents:
  1. Measure and indicate positions of drainage holes on vents. Make sure the holes on the glass side of the profile and the oposite side are 50mm offset
  2. Hidden drainage holes can be punched or milled with CNC machine. Drilling is not possible.
  3. On glass side of profile cut away rills on insulation bar and first aluminium rill of profile (8mm wide), with a 50mm offset from drainage hole of the frame or transom. Rills can be cut with a plyer, milled with a CNC or router.

Visible Drainage

Frames, transoms and vents:
  1. Measure and indicate positions of drainage holes on profiles. Tip: align profiles so drainage holes are in line.
  2. Drainage hole(s) can be drilled (3x8mm with a jig), punched or milled with a CNC machine.
  3. On glass side of profile cut away rills on insulation bar (8mm wide), with a 50mm offset from drainage hole of the frame or transom. For vents, also cut first aluminium rill of profile. Rills can be cut with a plyer, milled with a CNC or router.

Preparations for Decompression

Vent profiles:
  1. Measure and indicate positions of decompression holes on vent profiles.
  2. Drill 5mm decompression hole trough the outer chamber of the vent profile. The hole can be drilled or milled with a CNC machine. No punch tool or jig available.
Fixed glazing:
  1. Cut away 50mm of outer glazing gasket on top of glass.

Preparations for Hardware

Vent profiles:
  1. Open accessory groove with a ‘knacker’, a punch tool or CNC machine.
  2. Open up holes for handle and when selected also for the internal gearbox.

•Handle openings can be punched (for fork handles) or milled with a CNC machine or router (all handles) or drilled (only roseless handles).

•Openings for internal gearbox can be milled with a CNC machine or router and with a punch tool (Siegenia gearbox only)

Preparations and Connection of Transoms

  1. Prepare transoms by cutting away flange on end of profile (27x5mm).
  2. Indicate centre position of transom on base profile.
  3. Position and fasten inside T-connector (make sure reynaers logo is facing interior side of profile)
  4. Apply black silicone filling pieces for transoms.
  5. Clean and apply Reynaprotector to ends of transom.
  6. Assemble transom inside base profiles and fasten with screw.
  7. Mount rebate supports.
  8. Inject glue into profile and rebate supports.
  9. Apply silicone in internal corner to seal connection
  10. Clean connection with Reynaers Safety Clean

Corner Connection - Extrusion Corner Cleats-Crimp

  1. Clean and apply Reynaprotector to ends of profile.
  2. Inject glue inside of profile.
  3. Insert corner cleats.
  4. Assemble element
  5. Crimp element. See catalogue for correct support blocks and knive set.
  6. Mount rebate supports.
  7. Inject glue into rebate supports.
  8. Clean mitre with Reynaers Safety Clean.

Corner Connection - Die Cast Cleats-Crimp

  1. Drill 4mm holes for glue injection on internal and external chamber. Holes can be milled with a CNC machine, punched (see catalogue for correct settings of punch tool) or drill with a jig.When using a jig, make sure the holes line up with the centre lines on the profile.
  2. Clean and apply Reynaprotector to ends of profile.
  3. Insert corner cleats. Make sure the break line in the corner cleat aligns with the centre line on the profile.
  4. Assemble element
  5. Crimp element. See catalogue for correct support blocks and knive set.
  6. Mount rebate supports.
  7. Inject glue into rebate supports and profile until glue protrudes on oposite side of mitre.
  8. Clean mitre with Reynaers Safety Clean.

Corner Connection - Die Cast Cleats-Screw

  1. Drill 4mm holes for glue injection on internal and external chamber, drill 4mm hole for nail on external half scale and 12mm hole on internal half scale for screw. Holes can be milled with a CNC machine, punched (see catalogue for correct settings of punch tool) or drill with a jig.When using a jig, make sure the holes line up with the centre lines on the profile.
  2. Clean and apply Reynaprotector to ends of profile.
  3. Insert corner cleats. Make sure the break line in the corner cleat aligns with the centre line on the profile.
  4. Assemble element
  5. Tighten mitre by fastening screws towards mitre. On vents: be careful to not overstress the aluminium!
  6. Mount rebate supports.
  7. Inject glue into rebate supports and profile until glue protrudes on oposite side of mitre.
  8. Clean mitre with Reynaers Safety Clean.

Mounting of Double Casement Profile

  1. Indicate holes on double casement profile.
  2. Drill and countersink 4.5mm holes on internal and external half scales.
  3. Clean insulation bar and ends of profile in preparation of glueing insulation foam to profile with Reynaers Primer Seal & Bond Special.
  4. Apply sealing gasket onto profile.
  5. Align profile onto vent and transfer 3.5mm holes to vent profile.
  6. Seal gasket detail.
  7. Mount double casement profile to vent.
  8. Apply and seal acoustic gasket.
  9. Apply silicone sealant to end of profile
  10. Position and fasten end pieces, seal off seam with silicone sealant.
  11. Clean element with Reynaers Safety Clean
  12. Insert and seal central gasket profile.

Glass Supports

  1. Position glass supports, follow the positioning as indicated in the catalogue.
  2. Apply insulation foam in between the glass supports. At the position where rills on the profiles have been cut away make sure to also leave a 8mm opening in the foam.

Rubbering

  1. Apply acoustic gasket to the vent profiles.
  2. Apply outer glazing gasket inside each element and seal of with vulcanising glue in the corners.
  3. Apply central gasket.
  • When end pieces are used, degrease the connection with Reynaers Primer Seal & Bond special and seal with vulcanising or instant glue.
  • Central gasket can also be cut with a jig for a 45° corner connection. Degrease with Reynaers Primer Seal & Bond special and seal of corners with vulcanising or instant glue.

Glazing Beads

  1. Measure, cut and position horizontal glazing beads
  2. Measure, cut and position vertical glazing beads
