Designed to address the problem of using traditional horse shoe packers, the Klip packer applies a spring lateral force to free up installers hands, enabling the frame to be fitted true into its cavity. Traditional plastic packer fixings can often get lost trying to line up the window frame, falling down the cavity of the brickwork. Glazpart’s Klip frame packers comprise of two specialised features; firstly, the packer is formed in a horse shoe shape which enables the installers to position the frame to a ‘true fit’ by inserting the packers around the screw fixings of the frame and eliminates distortion as torque is applied from screwing the frame in securely. Secondly, a ‘tab’ function has also been included into the design of the packer, and once the frame is screwed in securely, the tab can be clipped off and silicone can be used to cover the packer edge. The packer is prevented from falling out and dropping into the cavity, because of the ridged design on the inside edge of the packer. The Klip packer can be purchased through any one of Glaz- part’s many national stockists and comes in six sizes, 1mm to 10mm. A minimum of eight packers are needed around the frame to ensure the frame is fitted properly. Glazpart’s ‘Packers for Professionals’ branded range of products can be found through any one of Glazpart stockist partners, for further details visit stockists Alu miniu m Bi-Fold & Patio Doors Get a PRICE From only Happy 2nd Birthday to the Pro Installer!
