SYSTEM NUMBER TWO: How to replace window glass with the The External Knock In Bead System
This system is where you remove the bead from the outside first. You then cut the internal glazing tape from the inside and then remove the glass. You then replace the glass and put the beads back in reverse order. It is explained in more detail below.
(Please note this is a rare system, and a specialised deglazing tool is required)
PROCEDURE: First go to the outside of the window, using the deglazing tool as shown in our video set: ‘Step by Step Guide – Replacing the Glass in Double Glazing. Place the tool in between the glass and the window frame, gently prize the tool away from the glass until you feel the bead start to release itself (starting in the middle of the bead along the length).
Now work your way towards the ends of the bead using the glazing tool until the bead is fully removed and remove all beads in this way leaving the top bead until last as this will help to prevent the glass from falling forwards. (NB. at this point the glass may come out, if there is no double sided glazing tape holding the glass in, which is highly unlikely).
Now you need to go to the inside of the window and as you stand and look at the glass you will see around the edge of the glass (between the glass and the window frame), a foam tape, this is double sided tape. You need to cut around the aperture with a flat scraper or knife cutting the tape, as shown in our video set: ‘Step by Step Guide – Replacing the Glass in Double Glazing.
Please ensure at this point you have someone holding the glass on the outside for safety as the glass may become free and fall out. Now go to the outside of the window frame and remove the double glazed unit, taking note at this point where any glazing packs are positioned around the double glazed unit.
Now you need to clean away any old double sided glazing tape from around the window frame using a flat scraper. After doing this you now need to replace the glazing tape; this can be bought from your local glass supplier.
After sticking the fresh glazing tape around the window frame you now need to remove the second backing tape from the glazing tape. Now place into position the new double glazed unit, ensuring it is sat on the bottom glazing packs. Position any more glazing packs noted earlier around the side of the double glazed unit, ensuring you keep a secure hand on the double glazed unit to prevent it from falling forwards.
Now you need to replace the glazing beads in reverse order of which they where removed. You do this by taking a glazing mallet, gently tap the bead into position until you feel it locate into position as it clips into the internal grooves, starting at the ends of the bead (over the length of the bead) and working your way to the middle of the bead until all beads are securely back into position.
It is however, always recommended that you use a qualified Window fitter to replace your Double Glazed (DG) panes. Even though a straightforward task, if you do your own, you undertake the task at your own risk.
