When I installed the safety glass on my sunroom addition, I used some commercial grade black butyl tape to stick the glass to the boards. However, now the glass is slowly sliding out. The roof has a 15 degree pitch. Now to figure out a solution.
The glass was initially installed so that the edge of the glass met the ends of the 2×6 rafters.
It took me a while to come up with something that could solve the problem a la DIY rather than having something custom made. I need some sort of ‘hook’ to put a stop to the effects of gravity. After some thought… deck plates.
I knew the only way to cut these was to use a grinder, so luckily the deck plates come with holes pre-drilled. Its just a matter of making a few passes with the cutting tool to cut the plates in half and then trim them to make a ‘hook’.
Then it was just a matter of trimming each part to shape the ‘hook’ and then file them to remove rough edges. I really don’t know how well this will work. I imagine the hooks will keep the glass from sliding. More concerning is if the tempered glass might shatter.
I hope not!
