Head Receptor Installation
The head receptor is then located using a standard, theoretical dimension from the back of the sill can. This will ensure that the head receptor is in the correct design location and the primary air seal gaskets will achieve full compression during panel install.
Panel installation begins at a starting point such as a corner and are marked according to their location using a numbering system for each unique floor plan. After the panels are installed, the sill wedge rubber is then pressed in between the back leg of the sill receptor and vertical panel join.
The caulking is applied to the joint with a caulk gun in sufficient quantity to fill the joint and the space immediately adjacent to the backer rod. The bead is then tooled smoothly with a tooling knife, giving the surface a uniform finish and pushing the material, assuring the that sealant is filling the space.
