VSA Enterprises Inc., and its predecessor Quicksilver Building Products (QBP), was founded in 1987. Our focus was and remains designing and producing innovative construction materials made of durable, modern plastic.
Addressing the need for light and plug mounting plates, installed originally with vinyl siding, these products have since become a standard installation practice in North America. This VSA product line includes a full line of vents to suit nearly every application for the exterior of the modern residential home.

B.
Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly prepared.
C.
If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
3.2
PREPARATION
A.
Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
B.
Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
3.3
INSTALLATION
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
A.
Vinyl Trim Accessories Installation:
1.
Ensure that substrate surfaces are sound and that sheathing paper or membrane has been installed / lapped correctly and is sealed to substrate using membrane tape or self-adhering membrane flashing.
2.
Install vinyl trim accessories to all openings and penetrations through wall finish system in strict accordance with manufacturers written installation requirements.
3.
Fasten vinyl trim accessories using non-corrosive fasteners and at locations recommended by trim manufacturer. Do not fasten to tightly and allow for expansion and contraction due to temperature changes.
4.
Install vinyl trim accessories over two layers of 30 pound sheathing paper or membrane, both side's install peel and stick adhesive tape, to the knurled side channel and secondly over the head covering the side tape.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
B.
OAB - Over Air Barrier, Electrical Light and Plug Units Installation:
1.
Drill 3/4 inch (19 mm) hole through exterior sheeting and air barrier and extend electrical wire through the air barrier and seal with sealant. Insert the wire into the cable clamps provided in the electrical box. Level the mounting block, over the air barrier and fasten to the wall using min. 6 - #8 x 1.5 inches (38 mm) wood screws into nailing flange. Install self-adhesive membrane over both sides of the nailing flange to the knurled side channel and over the head covering the side tape. Install exterior wall finish. Install reversible trim ring to suitable depth and finish electrical fixture to code.
2.
Where Rain Screen application is required, use VSA's Rainscreen Spacer which integrates with the OAB mount or strap perimeter of the nailing flange with furring strips, over the air barrier. Fasten OAB System to furring strips and seal back to the air barrier with self-adhesive membrane both sides over the nailing flange and back over the air barrier and across the top covering the two vertical side membrane.
3.
OAB System will be an air-tight and water-tight seal for exterior electrical wall mounted light and outlet plugs.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
C.
Vinyl Handrail Cover Installation:
1.
Preparation
a.
Check top rails for dry rot, secure nailing and straightness.
b.
Dry Rot: When badly rotted railing exists, unsafe conditions will not be corrected by installing vinyl handrail cover. Replace rotted section first.
c.
Secure Nailing: check to see that all nails are set and solid.
d.
Straightness: snap a chalk line, mark end to end and check for unevenness. If over 1/2 inch (13 mm) out of line, cut of excess.
2.
Installation of Handrail Cover:
a.
Slip outside cover over wood railing. Pull inside edge over wood railing.
3.
Installation of Corner Cap:
a.
Cut 45 degree angles on 2x4 or 2x6 VHC and install, leaving a minimum of 1/4 inch (6mm) from outside corner for expansion.
4.
Expansion:
a.
When joining two full lengths, allow minimum 1/2 inch (13 mm) for expansion.
b.
The vinyl handrail cover system is designed with a friction fit over wood railing, where no fasteners are required.
5.
Installation of End Caps and Expansion Sleeves:
a.
Insert end cap into railing, making sure of a proper fit before gluing.
b.
Expansion sleeve is required when joining two pieces of vinyl handrail cover. Apply a bead of silicone on either side of the open joint of the handrail cover.
