DUC38
3/8" Dry Glaze U-Channel
  • No Messy Silicone
  • Vinyl Seals & Secures Glass
  • Not For Use on Door Supporting Inlines
  • 84" length
  • Dry Glaze U-Channel offers the installer many benefits. It eliminates the need for messy silicone between the glass and metal, dramatically reducing installation time. If the glass is ever scratched or damaged it can be removed without the need to cut out the sealant. The extruded aluminum channel is wrapped in a protective poly sleeve with two pieces of clear vinyl to secure 3/8 inch (10 millimeter) glass. The Rigid Leg Vinyl goes on the interior, while the Flexible Vinyl "rolls in" on the exterior side. Matching finish End Caps are available, and must be ordered separately.

Glass Cutout:

The cutout for the hinge allows some adjustment in door position after installation. The positioning of the cutout is subjective, but tempering facilities have minimum distances from the end of the glass to the notch. It is important that the hinge is centered in the cutout for the initial installation to have maxium adjustiability.

Maintenance Guidelines:

• Our hinges are greased at the factory for quiet and trouble-free operation. If there is any squeaking that occurs after installation, put a drop of "3 in 1 Oil" (also known as "household oil") on the white nylon washer that the hinge body pivots on. This washer is the component that acts as a buffer, so the body of the hinge doesn't pivot directly on the brass center block. This solution doesn't require the disassembly of the hinge.
Note: Do not use spray lubricant on these hinges. If the hinge has been disassembled, upon re-assembly, use white lithium grease to lubricate the interior mechanism.

Never use an abrasive cleaner on the hardware. Many of the components are coated with a clear lacquer that will be irreparably damaged if subjected to harsh, abrasive chemicals. Advise your customer that drying the hardware with a clean, soft towel on a daily basis is the best way to maintain the hardware. If mineral deposits build-up, mix a couple of drops of a mild liquid soap (such as Ivory or a similar product) into a cup of warm water. Using a soft, non-abrasive cloth, clean the hardware. Rinse thoroughly with clean, warm water and dry.
