building construction or design or improper glazing procedures.
This warranty shall additionally become null and void for all purposes if
the insulated glass units are damaged by improper handling or if the insulating
glass units are subjected to stresses resulting from localized application of
heat which may cause excessive temperature differential over the glass surface
or edges of the unit, or if strain is applied to the insulated glass units by
movement of the building or provisions have not been made in accordance with
sound practice for adequate expansion or contraction of framing members.

shipping point nearest the place of installation.
Glenny Glass Company shall bear no other
expense of any type or nature including labor cost.
Purchaser hereby expressly covenants and agrees that purchaserís rights
are limited to a refund of the purchase price or the furnishing of replacement

respect nor to assume any other obligation or liability on the part of

represents the entirety of any agreement between the parties hereto.
The performance of insulated glass depends largely on glazing
products and techniques. Glenny Glass Company units must be installed to
properly ensure trouble-free service.
1. The sash opening must be level, plumb and square and
structurally adequate to support the weight load of the glass to prevent
mechanical stressing of the glazed insulated unit. All sash corner joints
must be watertight and the sill member must be weeped to the outdoors.
2. Units must be glazed on two rubber (or equivalent material)
setting blocks located at the quarter points of the sill. Blocks should be
three to 4 inches long and 1/8" wider than the unit thickness to obtain a
uniform and equal support.
3. Edge clearances of 1/8" to 1/4" depending on the size of
the unit must be maintained, 1/8" for small 1/2" units and 1/4" for larger
4. Glazing materials such as neoprene gaskets or non-corrosive
glazing materials such as butyl tapes are recommended. Never use putty or
glazing compounds which contain solvents or mineral oils. These materials
are known to be harmful to insulated glass units.
5. A watertight seal must be maintained throughout the
lifespan of the unit. Water entering the sash with subsequent freezing and
thawing will almost definitely cause unit failure.
6. Failure to follow the above recommended glazing
instructions can affect the functioning of the unit and thereby avoid this
