Rapierstar has published three free-to download Recommended Fixings Manuals (RFMs) which provide detailed guidance on which fasteners to use in all aspects of Liniar window and door assembly, including its bi-fold doors.
One RFM provides fastener guidance for the manufacture of the majority of Liniar windows – casements, flush sashes, fully reversible and tilt and turns – plus French doors/windows and bay windows. Each different element of the window or door is covered in detail, from attaching hardware to Liniar outerframes to baypole fixing, with diagrams indicating the correct fastener to use in coated carbon steel and stainless steel, plus product codes for easy ordering.
Two additional RFMs provide advice on fastener use for manufacturing Liniar bi-folding doors. These cover the standard Liniar bi-folding door and its Queen’s Award-winning ModLok™ bi-fold system which offers a level of robustness and strength to meet the enhanced security requirements of PAS24.
Rapierstar also offers a range of resources on its website, including technical datasheets for all products, information on testing and other documentation. Bespoke practical assistance can be provided too, such as signage and labelling for workstations along the fabrication line to reduce the risk of the wrong fasteners being used in error.
