3.01          EXAMINATION

A.    Examination and Acceptance of Conditions per Section 01 70 00 and as follows:

1.    Carefully examine rough openings with Installer present, for compliance with requirements affecting Work performance.

a.    Verify that field measurements, substrates, tolerances, levelness, plumbness, cleanliness and other conditions are as required by the manufacturer, and ready to receive Work.

b.    Verify the structural integrity of the header for deflection with live and dead loads limited to the lesser of L/720 of the span or 1/4 inch (6 mm). Provide structural support for lateral loads and eccentric load when the panels are stacked open.

NOTE:  Similar structural support is needed for the stacking bay(s) and any upper track leading to it.

            Structural support for lateral loads such as forced entry, etc. to be provided.                            

            It's recommended that all building dead loads be applied to the header prior to installing the unit. 

            If so, and if a reasonable amount of time has been allowed for the effect of this dead load on the header, only then can the building live load be used to meet the above requirements of L/720 or 1/4 inch (6 mm).

            If not, both dead and live loads need to be considered.

2.     Proceed with installation only after unsatisfactory conditions have been corrected.

3.02          INSTALLATION

1.     Properly seal around opening perimeter.

2.     Securely attach anchorage devices to rigidly fit top head track and stacking bay in place, level, straight, plumb and square.  Install frame in proper elevation, plane and location, and in proper alignment with other work

3.     Install glass panels, handles, lockset and other accessories in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations and instructions.


A.       Field Tests and Inspections per Section 01 40 00 of the following:

1.       Verify the Sliding Glass Partition system operates and functions properly.  Adjust hardware for proper operation.

B.       Non-Conforming Work: Repair or replace non-conforming work as directed by the Architect; see General and Supplementary Conditions, and Division 01, General Requirements.


A.       Keep units closed and protect Sliding Glass Partition installation against damage from construction activities.

B.       Remove protective coatings and use manufacturer recommended methods to clean exposed surfaces.
