          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          A.Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly prepared.
 
          B.If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
 
          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.
 
          C.Examine materials upon arrival at site. Notify the carrier and manufacturer of any damage.
 
          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, approved submittals and in proper relationship with adjacent construction.
 
          B.Fit exposed connections together to form tight, hairline joints.
          1.Do not weld, cut, or abrade surfaces of railing components that have been coated or finished after fabrication and that are intended for field connection by mechanical or other means without further cutting or fitting.
          2.Set posts plumb within a tolerance of 1/16 in per 3 feet (1.6 mm per 1 m).
          3.Align rails so variations from level for horizontal members and variations from parallel with rake of steps and ramps for sloping members do not exceed 1/4 in per 12 feet (6 mm per 3.6 m).
 
          C.Use anchorage devices and fasteners where necessary for securing railings and for properly transferring loads to in-place construction.
 
          D.Attach handrails to wall with wall brackets. Provide brackets with 1-1/2 in (38 mm) clearance from inside face of handrail and finished wall surface.
 
          E.Once installed, products shall be in compliance with the requirements of applicable federal, state and local building codes.
 
          3.4CLEANING AND PROTECTION
 
          A.Protect installed products until completion of project.
 
          B.Remove all stains, dirt, grease, or other substances by washing thoroughly using clean water and soap; rinse with clean water.
 
          C.Do not use acid solutions, steel wool, and other harsh abrasives.
 
          D.Restore finishes damaged during installation and construction period so no evidence remains of correction work. Return items that cannot be refinished in the field to the shop; make required alterations and refinish entire unit or provide new units.
