SYSTEM NUMBER THREE: How to replace window glass in The Internal Clip In Bead System
This is the simplest system of all and there is no need to work from the outside whatsoever. You simply remove the internal glazing bead from the inside and these clips out really easily. The glass is then lifted out & replaced for new. The glazing beads are then clipped back into place.
PROCEDURE: First you need to go to the inside of the window; you will see the glazing beads on this system are ALL on the inside of the window frame. Take a flat scraper and position it between the bead and the window frame and now gently prize out the bead starting in the middle (over the length of the bead) and working your way towards the ends of the bead.
Remove all the beads leaving the top bead until last as this will help to prevent the glass from falling forwards. When all beads are removed take note of the position of any glazing packs around the glass and remove the double glazed unit from the window frame.
Now take the new double glazed unit and position it into the window frame ensuring it is stood on the bottom glazing packs. Position any earlier noted packs around the glass ensuring you keep a secure hand on the double glazed unit to prevent it from falling forwards.
Now you need to replace the beads in reverse order of which they were removed by clipping the bead into the groove in the window (as shown in our video set: ‘Step by Step Guide – Replacing the Glass in Double Glazing), starting at the ends of the bead (over the length of the bead) and working your way towards 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.
