          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          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 gypsum board assemblies, where in forced to receive anchors, to verify that locations of concealed reinforcements have been clearly marked for installer. Locate reinforcements and mark locations if not already done.
          2.Verify areas to receive railings are completed to previously established conditions as detailed in other sections.
          3.Coordinate post setting diagrams, plans, templates, and drawings and verify the proper installation of any necessary anchorages as detailed in the Drawings.
          4.Coordinate with appropriate entity to correct unsatisfactory conditions, if any exist.
          5.Beginning of the work shall indicate acceptance of the areas and conditions as satisfactory by the Installer.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          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.
 
          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
          B.Dry Glaze Glass Guardrail System Installation:
          1.Base Shoe Moulding: The inside channel of the shoe shall be plumb to +/- 1/8 inch (3 mm) at an extended height of 42 inches (1067 mm) to assure glass panel top edge will align with adjoining panels.
          2.Place the Isolators into the Base Shoe Molding. Space Isolators a maximum of 14 inches (305 mm) on center with a maximum of 4 inches (76 mm) in from the left and right edges of each panel - 4 isolators per 4 foot panel.
          3.Place the glass atop the Isolators in the Base Shoe Molding. Overlap glass panels with butt joints of the base Shoe Moulding.
          4.Insert the aluminum Pane/Grip mechanism.
          5.Using a hex head Allen wrench, tighten the cap screw on the Pane/Grip mechanism. While tightening the plastic pad will break away from the aluminum as the unit expands. Confirm alignment and make snug-tight, then continue tightening to 10 ft/lbs of torque. Repeat on all Pane/Grip mechanisms to secure the panel in position.
          6.Insert Spacing Pads: Insert Spacing Pads between glass panels to prevent glass-to-glass contact. Trim as required.
          7.Seal Top of Shoe with cladding style.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
          C.Wet Glaze Glass Guardrail System Installation:
          1.Attach aluminum shoe molding to substrate with 1/2 inch (13 mm) stainless steel cap screws or bolts on 12 inches (305 mm) centers.
          a.Aluminum shall not be placed in direct contact with concrete or dissimilar metals. Isolate aluminum from substrate.
          2.Insert resilient setting blocks to provide support and cushion for glass panels as the 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) tempered float glass is inserted into the base section. Setting blocks shall be placed at points 1/4 and 3/4 of the length of the panel from the end. Insert vinyl spacer between adjoining glass panels to prevent glass to glass contact. Align and plumb glass panels. Fill base with expansive cement or non-shrinking, non-metallic grout.
          3.Insert rigid protective insert to the top edge of the glass panel between glass and handrail. Internal splice connectors shall be used for end-to-end connection of railing sections and corners. Install end caps and weld or fasten with adhesive or screws.
          4.Cover exposed base with cladding material to match top rail. Silicone or two-way tape shall be used to adhere cladding.
 
          3.4CLEANING
 
          A.Repair scratches and other installation-incurred damage on rails and posts. If damage is visible from a distance of 5 feet (1524 mm), component shall be replaced.
 
          B.Clean up debris and unused material, and remove from site.
 
          C.Clean glass immediately after installation. Scratched, chipped, or cracked glass shall be replaced.
 
          3.5PROTECTION
 
          A.Protect finishes of railings from damage during construction period with temporary protective coverings approved by railing manufacturer. Remove protective coverings at time of Substantial Completion.
 
          B.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.
