Install Tips

Tips for installing the aluminum U-profile:

  • To connect U-profile to sheet, start at one end of the trim piece and slide it onto sheet’s edge.
  • Once the profile is in place, attach w/small self-tapping screws every 8” to 12” (Do not pre-drill).
  • Weep holes must be drilled into the bottom of the profile every 8” to 10” for moisture drainage.
  • If needed, use a 100% silicone sealant that is compatible with polycarbonate.
