extra restrip
by: Anonymous

Thanks veru much,a great help,
do you mean extra peices of copper foil in those x
marked locations?
copper restrip on both sides of the came?
thanks again

Answer

You will use only copper restrip...not copper foil. It only goes down one side of the came, not both sides. The additional copper restrip, where the Xs are, also goes down one side of the came.

The additional pieces of copper restrip are simple there to give additional strength to the window. Usually you run copper restrip from one edge of the window to the opposite edge of a window. Those additional pieces (with the Xs) don't run from one edge to the other. They run from the edge of the window to another piece of copper restrip, thus giving additional strength in those areas, making the window more stable.
