REVERSI self-closing hinge on a thin & flat wall profile (38x5)
The hinges are screwed directly into pre-drilled and taped holes. It simplifies their set-up, especially verticality and C to C between hinges.

REVERSI hinge on compensation wall profile
(25 to 32 x 25).
The CAPSI or REVERSI hinge then no longer has a wall bracket. With a thickness of 21mm, it blends into the extension of the solid wall profile made of a Tee. The hinge is screwed onto and a U glued and screwed to the wall in which the Tee slides.

 

Clamp on flat wall profile (25x5)

The clamp is screwed into the profile by 2 M5 screws at its centre. Very easy fitting and high strength. The clamp fastened to the wall holds the fixed glass panel.



Clamp on wall compensation profile (25 to 32 x 25)
The 57x57 square clamp has the same size as the hinge: perfect homogeneity, pure design, sleek lines. As with the hinge, on a compensation profile, the clamp is screwed by the back of the Tee profile. The mobile part of the profile and the clamps form a complete set.


Design
Choosing between CAPSI and REVERSI
CAPSI is a model registered by ADLER SAS. The screws fastening the hinge onto the glass door are on the outer side and hidden by screw caps with a shape extending the wall fastening claws typical of ADLER self closing hinges. These self-adhesive metal screw caps (brass or stainless steel) bond perfectly with the back plates and will not fall over time. They are manufactured with great care, and can be customized: screen printed with your company name, lacquered, finish caps different from those on the hinge …
REVERSI features the same mechanism as CAPSI. All construction elements are identical, down to the back plate, which in REVERSI includes wider blading to house the screw caps. REVERSI’s motor plate and back plate assembly is reversed with respect to CAPSI: to return to a usual fitting with apparent screws on the inner side.
From the outside, REVERSI offers the most minimalistic design possible: a 57x57mm square, “2/3 of a business card”.
Hygiene - Maintenance

CAPSI’s perfectly smooth motor plate avoids nearly all scaling traces from lasting … This simplifies even more cleaning of the shower cubicle door.

Please note that as REVERSI, according to the model chosen or as an option, CAPSI may be fitted with cork, transparent PET or aluminium shims. All these materials offer high resistance of the attacks by water and chemicals in shower, hammam, sauna atmospheres.

Resistance

In applications with a high risk of forcing the door beyond 90° outward opening – such as fittings in certain gyms, hotel rooms, where shower cubicle or toilet doors may be found, not bearing against a wall but at the centre of the room; and which may be neglected -, ADLER SAS recommends using CAPSI rather than REVERSI. By reversing the assembly of strictly identical components, in this case of abnormal loading, REVERSI tends to break in flexion for an overload of a few kilogramme forces at the end of the door, while CAPSI offers higher strength by a factor of about 10, as the constraint no longer applies in flexion but in traction.

Choosing the right CAPSI or REVERSI ?

Saloon or Isodouche
At ADLER SAS, ISODOUCHE® and SALOON® have been known for nearly 40 years as reference hinges for their finish, quality, and more particularly their self-closing performance. The only difference between these 2 versions is the cam shape.
With CAPSI® and REVERSI®, ADLER SAS has radically simplified and improved the performance of these mechanisms to achieve:
- with extreme miniaturisation, the highest level of transparency of your glass constructions, and,
- with advanced and patented mechanical principles (*), and the use of above standard materials, the highest precision in closing and construction of sealed and gasket free shower cubicles or partitioning of offices without floor pivots …
With CAPSI and REVERSI, the now highly precise self-closing position deserves being finely adjusted to ensure perfect closing of a door extending a fixed partition, or double doors together. The closing angle is adjustable over the entire opening range, from -90° to +90°; the total opening range with respect to perpendicular to the hinge fastening plane remains naturally +/- 90°, regardless of the self-closing position adjustment.
With CAPSI Isodouche, the self-closing range is widened: theoretically from +/-45° around the closing position (offset by ), within the limit of +/-90° total opening. For safety purposes, and to cope with acceptable assembly imperfections (e.g. slight misalignment of the upper and lower hinges) and friction torque resulting from a heavy door, an automatic closing range of +/-30° is used. Thanks to a reduced self-closing angular range, the ISODOUCHE version is that ensuring the most accurate closing, remaining effective with the heaviest doors.
In the case of CAPSI Saloon, the effective self-closing range is +/-90° around the closing position. If the latter is offset with respect to the hinge’s normal to the fastening plane, in one direction the opening, and hence self-closing will be limited to 90° opening; and in the other, beyond 90° opening with respect to the closing position, and still within the limit of 90° opening with respect to the fastening plane, the hinge will no longer close automatically. Because of the widened self-closing range, this SALOON self-closing is weaker than ISODOUCHE, and is actually effective only for lighter and narrower doors, ideally gates below 35 kg with a maximum width of 90 cm.
THEREFORE, where very precise closing of large or heavy doors is required, use the ISODOUCHE model.

(*) For more details on the mechanical principles of the CAPSI, see § How does self-closing of a CAPSI hinge work?"

Door weight

Self-closing precision – in other words, closing of the door by automatic self-closing CAPSI hinges – is particularly related to residual self-closing torque to the closing position. If this torque is high, when a load is applied to the door tending to open it, the self-closing torque opposes the opening, and tends to close the door. This is how closing precision is achieved.

CAPSI and REVERSI hinges are the fruit of several compromises to optimize each of the following criteria: hinge miniaturisation; self-closing torque and closing speed; closing precision. For example, it would be easy to design a hinge of the CAPSI type withstanding 140 kg doors, while maintaining the « motor » assembly: piston, cam, spring… although this would require enlarging the hinge to house the system necessary to reducing the friction component resulting from the door’s weight. The 12mm diameter cam in special steel treated at 1.500 MPa and used as shaft will never break. Even when very thin, the wall bracket is made of an “aluminium brass” alloy about 3 times stronger than cast brass or stainless steel: it also offers very high strength. However, the door’s weight induces a friction torque of the moving hinge part on the wall bracket claws: this torque increases with the door weight. When the door becomes too heavy, the friction torque becomes too high with respect to the weight of self-closing exerted by the piston on the cam: the hinge no longer self-closes.
Assembly diagram of a CAPSI hinge
(In red, the 2 bearing washers of a CAPSI hinge: the lower one supports the door’s weight.
Its friction reduces the effective residual self-closing torque of the hinge).
Inside the highly compact CAPSI – or REVERSI - hinge, to increase the acceptable weight of the door without hindering the hinge’s performance, the effect of this weight on friction torque must be reduced. Special washers are then recommended for particular applications with very heavy doors: metallurgic treatment of these bearing washers reduces their friction ratio to about 1/3 what would be possible with Teflon for example …
Only PRESTIGE models use such bearing washers. PRESTIGE hinges are recommended for doors exceeding about 40 kg.

Self-closing quality
To achieve the best self-closing precision, CAPSI pistons are metallic. They offer the rigidity required for perfect guiding of the piston’s pressing face with an accuracy exceeding 0.1° with respect to the door plane. When the piston is metallic, piston and cam must be made of extremely hard metal to withstand the contact loads involved and never chip. Made of steel, the levels of hardness required are about 1,500 MPa.
To ensure the effective self-closing torque is as high as possible, all internal friction components of the hinge must be mastered.

The cams, but also the pistons, of the CAPSI benefit from a series of extraordinary surface treatments in the hardware, but which alone reduce the friction ratios by about one third what can be achieved with Teflon for example.
Certain variants of CAPSI and REVERSI however are fitted with a piston in very hard plastic: the particular shape of the piston ensures sufficient stiffness to obtain above-standard characteristics in terms of self-closing– precision and speed. As rather cheap solutions, these hinges are unable to rival the perceived quality and lifetime of 100% metal models – without mentioning applications with high temperatures and degree of humidity… - compared with 100% metal models.

Design

ADLER SAS recommends thorough tightening of the back plate on the plate. Only this can guarantee the door’s stability over time without ever retightening. The thickness of the opening between plate and back plate hence tightened is about 13 mm. Appropriate shimming is recommended for perfect behaviour of the door in this air gap.

CAPSI and REVERSI are proposed with 3 different types of shims according to the model:

- Cork shims: a traditional solution for shimming metal and glass parts, butyl cork certainly remains one of the safest, most effective, cheapest and most user-friendly solutions in the market. For CAPSI, due to the hinge’s level of miniaturisation, ADLER SAS recommends a 50% cork compression rate after tightening on the glass: and not the merely 25% recommended by professional rules. These CAPSI shims, with a thickness of 3, 5 and 6 mm, allow fastening 10, 8 and 6mm thickness glass respectively. NOTE: in the case of 6mm glass, the shim’s compression rate is merely 42%, which remains broadly sufficient considering the maximum weight reached with a 6mm thick door.
- PET shims: PET is a very hard plastic material; transparent in the case of ADLER shims, which shows only glass and metal; user-friendly (100% recyclable) and food-grade. It is hence a good solution chosen by ADLER SAS to ensure effective glass tightening. Tightening at 10N.m is possible per 100mm² shim useful areas: which is 25N.m tightening per screw in the case of a CAPSI hinge. Hence tightened, the door is secured. As PET at these load levels is rather non-compressible, 2.5, 1.5 and 0.5 mm thickness shims are proposed for 8, 10 and 12mm thickness glass respectively. Primary PET sheets have a poorly calibrated thickness. It may be necessary to add a 0.5mm shim to a 2.5mm shim for full tightening, as required, of 8mm thick glass: when possible, before mounting an 8mm glass, check the thickness of the 2.5mm shims. If below 2.3mm, add a 0.5mm shim on the motor plate side; if below 2.1mm, add a 0.5mm shim on either side of the glass.
- Aluminium shims: aluminium offers the benefit of being perfectly calibrated in thickness. It is a metallic, rather inert and 100% recyclable metal. With a same modulus of elasticity as glass, it allows risk-free and very strong tightening of the glass in the hinge. ADLER SAS recommend this solution in many situations: more particularly, refer to the ADLOCK and ADSLIDE ranges, but also ADLER VF. For its range of hinges optimised for shower cubicle walls in 8mm glass, ADLER SAS proposes 100% metal solutions in standard: also ideal for hammams, saunas,…


Particular assemblies

Domed glass

As CAPSI and REVERSI hinges are miniaturised, they are suited to tightening domed glass within the limit of a minimum domed radius in the hinge footprint of 1m25 for 8mm glass. In this case, to compensate the curvature of the glass at the tightening spot, the shims must be made of cork.
Ideally, the glass must not be too thick: 8 mm is a good compromise. Thicker glass leaves a residual shimming thickness which rapidly becomes too weak with respect to the deflection to be absorbed. Too thin a glass may be distorted, and in extreme cases break under the differential tightening pressure.

Sauna and hammam, even roaster…

For 8mm glass, a quality/price optimised solution is proposed: metallic piston, standard bearing washers and 2.5mm thick aluminium shims. This solution is designed specifically for the construction of sealed gasket-free shower cubicles, without profiles between the doors…
100% metallic, these hinges are also an ideal solution for the construction of sauna, hammam. In roasters, they dampen the casement and hold it in an open self-closing position.

 

Mounting on compensation profiles or wall profiles

The safest, fastest and simplest method for mounting a CAPSI door or façade assembly certainly consists in using massive, rigid profiles, and hence frames the façade. Fitting is then quite comparable with that of wooden windows or doors. Adjustable inflatable shims (ADLER ref. = 18650X) or wooden shims (ADLER 378-380 family) allow easy shimming of this frame vertically in its plane. Perfect vertical shimming perpendicular to the door closing plane (or frame plane in general) is still necessary to ensure the hinges can provide perfect self-closing: the verticality defect of a chassis perpendicular to its plane (and the closing plane of the doors) must remain well below 3 mm for a 2m height.

Wooden doors

Up to 21 mm thickness, a wooden door can be jointed by a pair of CAPSI hinges to benefit from all advantages of automatic high precision closing, double effect (opening in the 2 directions). Generally (beyond 13mm thickness), particular countersinking of the door at the location of the hinges is necessary.
Beyond 21 mm thickness, it remains possible to articulate advantageously a wooden door using CAPSI hinges: the excess thickness beyond 21mm must be contained on the side required of the hinge, which then becomes single effect, i.e. it can be opened only in the other direction. To prevent breakage, it is highly recommended to stop the door in its closed position, near its free end.

Operation of the CAPSI hinge self-closing

The hinge’s self-closing « motor » allowing automatic closing of the door comprises a piston pressed strongly against a cam. The cam is fixed with respect to the frame: fixed wall or glass supporting the hinge: its angular position is indexable. The piston is linked to the door and hence turns circumferentially around the cam. The stable self-closing position is when the piston presses flat on the cam’s flat. Once the door half-open, the piston moves up on the edge corresponding to the cam flat: the spring (already pre-loaded) compresses even more and the self-closing lever arm is at its maximum. Hence, according to the spring’s pre-load, the self-closing torque is adjustable to the opening angle of the door, but normally always maximum at the self-closing position: this ensures self-closing precision when all guides and the construction are rigid.
Selon le principe décrit précédemment, il apparaît clairement que seul le principe de rappel fondé sur l’interaction des plats d’une came et d’un piston permet simplement de réaliser un rappel précis et durable ; qui plus est, sur un angle assez grand. Les rappels courants exercés par un doigt d’indexage dans une rainure ne sont précis qu’aussi longtemps que le diamètre du cylindre d’indexage est légèrement plus grand que celui de la rainure avec laquelle il doit coopérer. Les contraintes en jeu tendent à réduire rapidement ce diamètre du cylindre d’indexage, surtout s’il est en matière plastique.
Came ISODOUCHE: le plat le plus large possible contribue à augmenter le couple utile de rappel et la précision de fermeture.
Came SALOON: la came fortement évasée permet un rappel utile sur une plage angulaire élargie. Par contre, le couple de rappel n’atteint jamais celui d’une ISODOUCHE à la position de rappel.

Closing precision / Imprecision

Self-closing torque according to the opening angle of the door of the different models of hinges:
- Black: CAPSI Isodouche
- Red: CAPSI Saloon – in the closed position, the torque is nearly 7 times below that of an Isodouche, hence a precision and closing speed well below.
- Blue: indexing hinge – at the self-closing position, torque is zero. It stays at zero, because of the frictions, over a typical range of +/-3°: i.e. a closing inaccurate at +/-4cm for an 800mm wide door. With CAPSI Isodouche, the precision is +/-0.1°, within the millimetre.

Fastening on the wall or wall profile:

Before assembly onto the door, the hinges must be fastened to the wall profile or the template used to drill the wall with 4 holes perfectly aligned, and with the exact centre distances.
Reminder: The wall must be flat. The hinge axes must be aligned perfectly.
The quality of the medium and screwing in the wall is essential for the installation’s durability.

FASTENING ON GLASS:

The distance between the plate and back plate clamped on the glass must be around 12.5 – 13 mm, whatever the glass thickness. If this distance is too small, the return spring is stuck and the hinge blocked. If too big, opening the door in one direction will be impossible.
Therefore, shimming must compensate the glass thickness differences from one installation to the other. Always observe with precision the shim thicknesses recommended (See table). Centre the hinge properly in the notch.

(*)Plastic’s thickness is not precise. If the shims measure less than 2.1mm, add a 0.5mm shim to each side of the glass. If the shims measure less than 2.3mm, add only 1 shim of 0.5mm thickness on the plate side.
The tightening screws must be tightened fully (nominal torque 24 N.m).
NEVER REUSE SHIMS ALREADY COMPRESSED DURING SEVERAL HOURS.
The final total thickness of the hinge fastened to the glass must be about 22 mm.
Before fitting the door between the plate and back plate, place 1mm thickness shims on the wall U-bolts to ensure the shims and the glass notch do not rub on the U-bolt axis.
ADJUSTING THE SELF-CLOSING POSITION:
The hinges are delivered without self-closing mechanism. Once the assembly mounted, place the door in the self-closing position required and hold it firmly there. In this position, thoroughly screw the screws without locking head of the self-closing cam position; of all hinges equipping the same door. IMPORTANT: WHEN THE CAM OF ONE OF THE HINGES AT LEAST HAS BEEN BLOCKED, NEVER PIVOT THE DOOR WITHOUT THE CAMS OF ALL HINGES BEING BLOCKED THEMSELVES. Non compliance with this instruction may result in the final adjustment being highly complex; or it may lead to heavily degraded operation of the self-closing.
THE SELF-CLOSING POSITION IS FROZEN ONLY ONCE ALL BLOCKING SCREWS HAVE BEEN TIGHTENED THOROUGHLY.
FITTING SCREW CAPS:
The screw caps supplied with the CAPSI range are in pre-glued decorated metal for better behaviour over time. Once glued, they can no longer be destroyed (for example, by drilling at the centre of the cap with a 1 mm dia. drill). ADVICE: GLUE THE SCREW CAPS AT THE VERY END OF YOUR WORK, ONCE THE ENTIRE INSTALLATION ACCEPTED.
A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF SEALED AND GASKET-FREE SHOWER CUBICLES

Definition of the opening direction:

By principle, we always stand outside the cubicle and open the door either by pulling it, or by pushing it, as our hinges are usually double effect.
When the hinge is on the right, the casement is said to be left (« left pushing » or « left pulling »); when the hinge is on the left, opening is performed with the left hand and the casement is said to be on the right (« right pushing » or « right pulling »).
Principle of the designation of shower cubicles:
Description in the order of the glasses, seen from the outside, from left to right.
5 types of main glasses:
- P (door): comprising with the r or l extension (for left or right opening), in:
- PMG: Wall/Gl door;
- PGG90: Gl/Gl door 90°;
- PGG180: Gl/Gl door 180°;
- F (fixed) requiring to be stiffened;
- pF (small Fixed) not requiring a stiffener (typically with width below 300mm);
- R (Return… but which can also be used on façade): it is higher than the door as stiffened by a stiffener running above the door in its full travel;
- pR: an R of small width, not requiring to be stiffened by a stiffener but used to stiffen via a stiffener, another R.
When a stiffener is fastened to a fixed (F or R), it is described in the cubicle’s designation just after the fixed wall it is fastened to. When it is used to stiffen the entire construction by inter-connecting the glass walls, it is described at the end of the entire description. 2 types of stiffeners: RC (square stiffener 20x20), RR (round stiffener dia.25x2). These stiffeners can be fastened in 4 ways: N (normal –or perpendicular-), P (parallel), or N and P simultaneously then described as N, finally O (orientable, typically 45°). In the P and N&P versions (described as N), a number (2 or 4 typically) completes the designation to indicate the number of fastening points perpendicular to the stiffener in addition to the normal fastener(s) at the end. Therefore, we can read RCN, RCP4, RCN2, RRN, RRP4, RRN2, and RRO…

Reversing a construction:

If the last term in the designation is a stiffener for the entire construction, it remains the last term in the designation of the reverse construction. All other terms in the description will be grouped in the reverse direction. The door opening direction will also be reversed: the l extension becoming the r extension, and vice versa.

Choosing wall profiles:

       
To fasten wall clamps or hinges onto compensation profiles, a width of 25mm is sufficient. The edge of a standard 8mm glass is centred on the profile which protrudes by about 8mm. The fastening holes are covered by the glass edge: a single reference of profiles in stock includes the 2 fastening centre distances: 1m55 and 1m80. These profiles are also used to fasten CLIP-IN DOOR and ADLER VF hinges.Chrome brass: 78014R (flat) and 78011N (compensation); brushed stainless steel: 78015S and 78012P respectively.
 
An even more discrete construction can be achieved using flats rather than compensation profiles. To fasten hinges while leaving them removable, they must be screwed on the façade. The flat fastening profile of CAPSI hinges is then 38mm wide. The countersunk screwing holes in the wall are then fully covered by the hinge wall plates. 2 centre distances between the fastening holes are available in standard in stock: 1m55 and 1m80. 2 standard finishes: chrome brass ((78004F for 1m55 and 78002C for 1m80) and brushed stainless steel ((78005G for 1m55 and 78003D for 1m80).
For very simple stiffener fastening, without drilling the wall, offset fastening plates are fastened directly onto the 25mm wide profiles.
The width of the flat wall profile for fastening Capsi hinges is sufficient to fasten the stiffener directly in an additional tapped hole prepared by ADLER as per your dimensions.

The entire construction also includes floor profiles (threshold strips), in both finishes, with or without fastening points (tapped holes) for clamps under fixed glasses.

Wall profiles or not?

Choice: TECHNIQUE

CAPSI and REVERSI hinges are very precise; however, to ensure all the self-closing torque is released, when fastened the hinges must be perfectly aligned with each other and without stress.
A « biased » hinge fitting naturally blocks the movement of any hinge, usually forcing the door to close in an intermediate position offering the minimum average distortion of the door under the contradictory effect of both hinges.
For example for a shower wall or corridor separation door, which closes with a one-millimetre accuracy at the door’s end, the hinges must be perfectly free and aligned.
The only correct assembly: fixed hinges, with axes perfectly aligned together.
Many incorrect assemblies to be avoided absolutely and leading to improper operation of the hinges: automatic closing inoperative, early hinge damage, up to breakage; and excessive solicitation of the anchoring points, up to tearing from the wall.

Therefore, direct fastening of the hinges onto a wall which is not perfectly flat is just forbidden! Correcting the flatness defects of a wall merely by shimming the back of the hinge wall plates is not possible, and requires delicate masonry work.
In the case of a non flat wall, ADLER SAS strongly recommends the use of wall profiles, flats or compensation profiles.

Choice: DESIGN

Assembly without wall profile is often demanded. If such a profile-free assembly is not recommended technically, does it really offer an aesthetic benefit? The following photos present the visual impact on a same construction with wall profiles and without these profiles: this is shown with 3 very different wall facings. Here, the profiles are intentionally the largest to highlight the visual impact: 25 x 25mm compensation profiles. A construction with 5mm thick flats is even more discrete.

In all cases, even a 25x25 mm compensation profile is not that visible.
Discrete, located at the end of the glasses, it outlines the glass construction and can become a design element, such as stainless steel frameworks of the doors …
For most non flat walls, the only alternate construction acceptable consists in integrating on – or in – the wall, before tiling, a « U » profile for rabbet assembly which is then virtually invisible. One should though be vigilant, according to the cubicle model chosen: in certain cases where heavy loads may apply to the end of the glass fastened, gluing the glass in the upper and lower pars in the rabbet may prove necessary, as holding by the rabbet seal may be insufficient (**).


(**) The ADSLIDE rabbet system – available in brushed stainless steel– including a 30x12x30x1 « U » profile with an opening of 10 for a glass size 8 with full height transparent rabbet seal on one side of the glass withstands about 50 kg tearing over a full height of 2m.

Case N°21 : CaC-PMGd-PGG90g-R-RCN
with compensation wall profiles

On polished concrete:
The polished concrete surface is mat. The rather thick and chromed finish compensation profile is visible. A profile in « brushed stainless steel » finish would certainly be more discrete on this wall. However, on the lacquered glass lateral wall, hence glossy, the chrome brass wall profile is very discrete. Please note the benefit of such a construction with profile glued on full surface for anchoring a door on such a wall facing.
On driftwood:
The previous comments remain applicable. According to the constructions, the profile
On black faience:
According to the constructions and viewing angle, a wall profile glued onto a mosaic surface, particularly when the latter is glossy, is virtually invisible. If additionally the mosaic has an imperfect flatness surface, a wall profile construction is obvious in this case.
can blend with the joints between the wall lathes.
Choice: INSTALLATION QUALITY & GUARANTEE

Wall profiles proposed by ADLER SAS were designed to facilitate and secure installation. Applying the method proposed by ADLER SAS to measure the dimensions of your installation and mount the profiles ensures:
- An accuracy of one millimetre in adjustments guaranteeing sealing and looks;
- Durability of wall fasteners over time;
- Drilling which is secured, precise and limited to 2 (limited risk of damage to the wall facing).
Full height gluing of the profiles with appropriate sealant (call ADLER SAS), and pressing against the wall with a rigid mason’s rule ensure simple correction of flatness and verticality defects to guarantee sealing. The metallic parts are screwed directly into pre-machined profiles: accurate, fast, strong assembly guaranteed.

Achieving a millimetre precision construction from non flat and non vertical walls
Measuring dimensions: correction of verticality and flatness defects in walls
Most of the time, walls are neither flat nor vertical. This means down to one millimetre precision as the final construction requires this level of precision:
- Which is the clearance between façade glasses;
- To guarantee perfect sealing in normal use; and
- To ensure very pure aesthetics of the shower wall, as with a corridor separation …
Different cases of non flat and non vertical walls are shown below. The dimension measurement technique is always the same, with the sole purpose of determining the thickness of the 2 shims to be fastened at the back of the wall profile to correct all wall defects.
Case of a non flat wall: irregular tiling…
Case of a protrusion in the middle of the wall: for example, thicker frieze.
Case of a non vertical wall, frequent in renovation…
Case of a tiling defect with an alignment defect on the upper and lower parts of the wall.
Installing the profiles
Glue 0, 1 or 2 shims at the back of each wall profile according to the defects to be corrected: maximum one on the level of each of the 2 countersunk holes pre-machined in the profile and through which the wall will be counterbored to receive impact screws adapted to the wall, dowell diameter 6mm, to fasten and secure the profile, particularly as long as the sealant has not cured. The following table shows the shimming of the upper and lower profiles, while indicating every time the respective thickness of the 2 shims for each of the measurement cases illustrated previously.

Measuring the total width of the glass wall

The case of a niche wall is shown here. Proceed similarly in the case of an angle wall or when leaning against a wall.
The width of the glass façade to be constructed is usually considered as that of the largest perfectly vertical rectangular shape fitting inside the opening to close.
The façade width must be measured at the top and bottom, at the precise location where the flatness defects have been measured (B and C previously): i.e. also at the planned height if the wall profile screwing points.
These width measurements can be made directly using a mechanical or laser gauge for example; or even a suitable tape measure. They can also be made in two operations, with a standard tape measure and still the laser beam.
The top and bottom measurements must be identical. Otherwise, START OVER AGAIN!
Top measurement = l1-c1+l2-c2
Bottom measurement = l3-c3+l4-c4
Therefore the total façade width is worth: l1-c1+l2-c2= l3-c3+l4-c4.

Legend of the previous diagrams
     

A mason’s rule (light, very rigid and perfectly straight), ideally cut at the planned height of the façade (*), is applied against the wall, at the planned façade anchoring point. Ideally it is held vertically using a spirit level. The wall profile countersunk holes are marked with a pencil (centred at 15mm precision, standard centre distance 1m55 or 1m80). A laser allows materializing on the rule a perfect vertical, in a plane perpendicular to the façade to produce: 3 distances from this line vertical to the wall are then measured.
The contact of the rule with the wall shows the wall’s flatness defects and finds the wall’s most protruding point, the one around which the rule turns when nearly vertical.

(*) If the rule is too short, a protrusion at the top of the wall at the façade fastening point may remain undetected. Conversely, a protrusion above the cubicle height may prevent proper pressing of a rule which is too long.

Measuring the total height of the glass wall l
The case of a niche wall is shown below. Apply a similar technique in the case of an angle wall or bearing against a wall.
The height of the glass wall is defined as being the difference between the level in the upper part sought – for example, aligned with a tile joint or the upper part of a door jamb or an existing furniture unit … - and that of the lower part– for example the top of a basin, the floor,….

The lower level must ideally be horizontal. Therefore, the lower level is marked as being that of the highest point of the bearing of the façade to build, over its width.
