Prefabricated corners, which may be adapted for the width of the surrounding window profile that is present if necessary, are a reliable alternative.
This series of articles summarises typical, challenging joint situations and shows how technicians can find practical solutions for these challenges. It also provides an overview of the detail features for which prefabricated solutions are available that allow tradespeople to achieve airtightness in a quick, easy and reliable manner.Continue reading
