All shop drawings showing the glazing details involving structural sealants shall be submitted for review. Structural sealant contact width and thickness calculations will be done by GE Silicones based on the glazing system, glass size and design wind load.
Documentation of the print review stating the recommended sealant grades and calculated structural sealant dimensions required must be received from manufacturer prior to the commencement of assembly work. GE Silicones is not responsible for calculating movement for joint width considerations. This is the responsibility of the design engineers. GE Silicones will provide the sealants movement capability and make recommendations on how wide a joint should be for a given expected movement.
