Based on a system that installs the loose stops on the interior side of the sash I typically install glass like this:
We run into a sash with interior stops. They are held in by nails only. Itís a common sash and seems to work.
For our sashes that have a 6mm rabbet we use silicone, but I have found a vendor in Connecticut that will custom make 3mm wide tape so we will switch to that.
We do it the same way as you, gary.
We have tried tapes of various thickness and width. One side or the other or both. We always go back to the sealant (RTV silicone) since we have it in colors, it is easy and familiar, and it is exceedingly effective.
We can't get the tape to align with edges of the stops, the stops are not positionable, and I'm just not sure of the sealing ability. Old school brain.
I don't know how old this post is but I have a follow-up question.
How and when do you apply the RTV sealant to apply wood panels or glass? Is it before or after the door finished?
Do you lay the wood panel or glass into the bead of caulk and get squeeze out?
Aren't you afraid to get silicone on the door(wood) and this can cause problems (fish eyes, does not take finish) with the finish of the door?
Do you finish the door with the glass and panels installed?
