About Glazing Packers
Fitting glass windows can be tricky without the right supplies. Place plastic glazing packers between the new glass pane and the window frame to ensure that you have them aligned perfectly. When installing new window units, there is a small gap all the way around a window pane when you lift it to place it in the frame. Glazing packers fill this space and allow you to wedge the glass into position without bending the frame or damaging the glass surface. Some frames are designed to allow water to enter and then escape through small holes. By raising the unit using special bridge packers, which are typically black, you ensure that the glass does not rest in any water. These window accessories are also available on eBay in several colours, including red, green, grey, blue, and white. Each colour has specific dimensions, so you know simply by looking at it which one you need to ensure an even gap around the window pane.
