B.    Protect glass from edge damage during handling and installation, and subsequent operation of glazed components of the work.  During installation, discard units with significant edge damage or other imperfections. C.   Glazing channel dimensions are intended to provide for necessary bite on glass, minimum edge clearance, and adequate sealant thickness, with reasonable tolerance.  Adjustments may be made as required by job conditions at time of installation. D.   Comply with combined recommendations and technical reports by manufacturers of glass and glazing products as used in each glazing channel, and with recommendations of Flat Glass Marketing Association "Glazing Manual", except where more stringent requirements are requested by the County. E.    Install insulating glass units to comply with recommendations by Sealed Insulating Glass Manufacturers Association, except as otherwise specifically indicated or recommended by glass and sealant manufacturers. F.    No attempt shall be made to change the size of heat strengthened, tempered or insulating glass units after they leave the factory.  All heat absorbing glass must be clean cut.  Nipping to remove flares or to reduce oversized dimensions of any type of glass is prohibited. G.   Clean glazing channel and other framing members to receive glass, immediately before glazing.  Remove coatings which are not firmly bonded to substrate.  Remove lacquer from metal surfaces where elastomeric sealants are used. H.   Clean joint surfaces immediately before installation of sealants of caulking compounds.  Remove dirt, insecure coatings, moisture and other compounds.  Each concrete and masonry joint surfaces as recommended by sealant manufacturer.  Roughen vitreous and glazed joint surfaces as recommended by sealant manufacturer. I.      Prime or seal joint surfaces where indicated, and where recommended by sealant manufacturer.  Confine primer/sealer to areas of sealant bond; do not allow spillage or migration onto adjoining surfaces. J.     Employ only proven installation technique, which will ensure that sealants are deposited in uniform, continuous ribbons without gaps or air pockets, with complete "wetting" of joint bond surfaces equally on opposite sides.  Except as otherwise indicated, fill sealant rabbet to a slightly concave surface, slightly below adjoining surfaces.  Where horizontal joints are between a horizontal surface and vertical surface, fill joint to form a slight cove, so that joint will not trap moisture and dirt. K.    Install setting blocks of proper size in sill rabbet, located 1/4th of glass width from each corner.  Set blocks in thin course of heel-bead compound, if any. L.    Provide spacers inside and out, of proper size and spacing, for glass sizes larger than 50 united inches, except where gaskets or pre-shimmed tapes are used for glazing.  Provide 1/8" minimum bite of spacers on glass and use thickness equal to sealant width, except with sealant tape use thickness slightly less than final compressed thickness of tape. M.   Set units of glass in each series with uniformity of pattern, draw, bow, and similar characteristics. N.   Voids and Filler Rods: Prevent exudation of sealant or compound by forming voids or installing filler rods in channel at heel of jambs and head (do not leave voids in sill channels), except as otherwise indicated and depending on light size, thickness and type of glass, and complying with manufacturer's recommendations. O.   Force sealants into channel to eliminate voids and to ensure complete "wetting" or bond of sealant to glass and channel surfaces. P.    Tool exposed surfaces of glazing liquids and compounds to provide a substantial "wash" away from glass. Install pressurized tapers and gaskets to protrude slightly out of channel, so as to eliminate dirt and moisture pockets. Q.   Clean and trim excess glazing materials from glass and stops or frames promptly after installation, and eliminate stains and discolorations. R.   Where wedge-shaped gaskets are driven into one side of channel to pressurize sealant or gasket on opposite side, provide adequate anchorage to ensure that gasket will not "walk" out when installation is subjected to movement.  Anchor gasket to stop with matching ribs, or proven adhesives, including embedment or gasket tail in cured heel bead. S.    Gasket Glazing: Miter cut and bond ends where gaskets are used for channel glazing, so that gaskets will not pull away from corners and result in voids or leaks in glazing system. T.    Protect exterior glass from breakage immediately upon installation by use of crossed streamers attached to framing and held away from glass.  Do not apply markers to surfaces of glass.  Remove nonpermanent labels and clean surfaces.  Cure sealants for high early strength and durability. U.   Remove and replace glass which is broken, chipped, cracked, abraded or damaged in other ways during the construction period, including natural causes, accidents, and vandalism.
