The 290 wall plate is designed to allow the structural glazing bar to be positioned at angles ranging from 5° to 25°. The wall plate fits directly to the wall. The end plates for the wall plate are screw fit aluminium and are supplied as a pair.
The leg of the wall plate is fixed to the wall by drilling through the two locating grooves. The type of fixing used will depend upon the substrate to which the wall plate is being fixed. Fixings should be installed in a zig-zag pattern i.e. Use a fixing in the top groove then move along 300mm and fix in the lower groove and keep repeating to create a ‘W’ pattern with the screws.
If installed correctly, the wall plate will look like a lower case letter ‘b’ shape when viewed from the side.
