PART 3 EXECUTION
 
3.1
EXAMINATION
A.
Verification of Conditions: Examine areas and conditions under which the work is to be installed, and notify the Contractor in writing, with a copy to the Owner and the Architect, of any conditions detrimental to the proper and timely completion of the work. Do not proceed with the work until unsatisfactory conditions have been corrected.
1.
Examine substrates to receive anchors verifying that locations of concealed reinforcements have been clearly marked for the Installer. Locate reinforcements and mark locations if not already done.
2.
Beginning of the work shall indicate acceptance of the areas and conditions as satisfactory by the Installer.
3.2
PREPARATION
A.
Coordinate setting drawings, diagrams, templates, instructions, and directions for installing anchors, such as sleeves, concrete inserts, anchor bolts, and miscellaneous items having integral anchors that are to be embedded in concrete or masonry construction. Coordinate delivery of such items to the Project site.
3.3
INSTALLATION
A.
General: Install components in accordance with manufacturer's instructions and in proper relationship with adjacent construction.
1.
Fitting: Fit exposed connections together to form tight, hairline joints.
2.
Cutting and Placement: Set handrails and railings accurately in location, alignment, and elevation measured from established lines and levels and free from rack.
a.
Do not weld, cut, or abrade coated or finished surfaces of railing components that are intended for field connection by mechanical or other means without further cutting or fitting.
b.
Align rails so variations from level or parallel alignment do not exceed 1/4 inch in 12 feet (1.6 mm per m).
c.
Provide manufacturer's proprietary system to evacuate entrapped water in hollow sections of railing members that are exposed to exterior or to moisture from condensation or other sources, in order to prevent water from entering the concrete slab. In lieu of the manufacturer's proprietary system, if acceptable to the Architect, provide another means to evacuate the entrapped water, i.e., a weep hole and epoxy fill system ("drill-and-fill").
d.
Anchor posts in concrete with pipe sleeves preset and anchored into concrete. After posts have been inserted into sleeves, solidly fill annular space between post and sleeve with non-metallic, non-shrink grout, mixed and placed to comply with anchoring material manufacturer's directions.
e.
Anchor posts in concrete by forming or core drilling holes not less than 5 inches (127 mm) deep and 3/4 inch (19 mm) greater than outside diameter of post. Clean holes of loose material, insert posts, and fill annular space between post and concrete with non-metallic, non-shrink grout, mixed and placed to comply with anchoring material manufacturer's directions.
f.
Leave anchorage joint exposed, wipe off surplus anchoring material, and leave 1/8 inch (3 mm) buildup, sloped away from post.
g.
Corrosion Protection: Coat concealed surfaces of aluminum that will be in contact with grout, concrete, masonry, wood, or dissimilar metals, with a heavy coat of bituminous paint.
h.
Adjusting: Adjust handrails and railings before anchoring to ensure alignment at abutting joint's space posts at interval indicated, but not less than required to achieve structural loads.
i.
Fastening to In-Place Construction: Use anchorage devices and fasteners where necessary for securing handrails and railings and for properly transferring loads to in-place construction.
B.
Non-Welded Railings Connections: Use mechanical joints for permanently connecting railing components. Use wood blocks and padding to prevent damage to railing members and fittings.
C.
Metal Interaction:
1.
When aluminum components come into contact with dissimilar metals, surfaces shall be kept from interacting through painting the dissimilar metal with a heavy coat of a proper primer. The use of plastic grommets and/or PVC sleeves is encouraged to prevent contact between stainless steel cables and aluminum hole edges.
2.
When aluminum components come into contact with cement or lime mortar, exposed aluminum surfaces shall be painted with water-white methacrylate lacquer.
3.4
ADJUSTING AND CLEANING
A.
Touch-Up Painting: Immediately after erection, and abraded areas of shop paint, and appoint exposed areas with same material.
B.
Passivation: Immediately after erection, spray passivation solution on stainless steel frame pieces and cables to restore protective layer. Use Boeshield T9 in marine environments for additional protection.
C.
Cleaning: Restore finishes damaged during installation and construction period so no evidence remains of correction work. Return items that cannot be refinished in field to shop; make required alterations and refinish entire unit, or provide new units.
3.5
PROTECTION
A.
Provide final protection and maintain conditions in a manner acceptable to the Installer that shall ensure that the aluminum handrails and railings shall be without damage at time of Substantial Completion.
B.
Protect finishes of handrails and railings from damage during construction period with temporary protective coverings approved by railing manufacturer. Remove protective coverings at the time of Substantial Completion.
C.
Protect stainless steel from corrosion and staining by applying passivation solution following installation and periodically thereafter. Use Boeshield T9 in addition to passivator in marine environments.
D.
Protect wood products from fading, checking, splitting, etc. with proper end grain sealant and oil treatment.
