DIY Instructions – Core Drill Option

STEP 1

Once you have worked out all your panel sizes and gaps, use a chalk line and string out your fence line.

STEP 2

Using a tape measure and pencil, mark out on your chalked fence line where the edge of the glass panels start and stop, remembering to include your gaps between each panel and gates.

STEP 3

Now that you have your fence layout marked out, use a pencil to mark the position of the spigots for drilling.

STEP 4

Using a 75mm core drill, core your holes to a depth of approx 120-150mm deep. Remove the core from the hole and sponge out the water from the holes.

STEP 5

Attach the spigots to the glass panels at the required distances.

STEP 6

Using the required height set down timber chocks. Position them just inside the outer edges of each panel of glass.

STEP 7

Position the dress rings over the cored holes. Then lift the panel and gently lower each spigot through the dress ring, into the core, so that the glass is now sitting on the timber chocks. The spigots should be free “floating” in the cored holes.

STEP 8

Using a spirit lever now begin to shim either end of the glass and chocks to achieve a straight level across the top edge of the glass. Be sure to check to make sure the glass panel is in the correct position referring to your markings on your fence line.

STEP 9

Now, using timber make a timber brace that will hold your panel upright. It can be anchored onto grass with a garden stake, for if you have no grass, then screw in a base plate and use something heavy to anchor the base plate to the ground. With one person holding the panel plumb screw support arms either side of the panel to complete the brace. The panel should now be secure, both level and plumb. Ensure you double check that you are happy with where and how it is sitting.

STEP 10

Now move onto the next panel and install as above.

STEP 11

Once you have completed all your panels and gates, the fence is now what we call “dry set”. Again use your sprit level, run over all the panels making sure they are level and plumb. Use your tape measure to make sure all your gaps are correct. Make sure the gate is seated correctly and operates well. Finally, run your eye over the fence, does it “look” right, position yourself at different angles. Make any minor adjustments as needed.

STEP 12

Mix up some class C construction grout. We recommend BOSTIK TECHFLOW HES or LANKO DURAGROUT 701.

STEP 13

Using a makeshift pourer, lift the dress rings up to the bottom for the glass and pour the grout into the
cored holes until flush with the top of the hole. Lower the dress ring back down and move onto the next
hole. Once you have grouted all your holes, sponge up any excess grout around the holes. Try and not wet the area to much.

STEP 14

After the required curing time (see grout bag for details), gently remove all your timber bracing and gently knock out your timber chocks.

STEP 15

Wet down your fence first, both sides, and use mild soapy water with a soft cloth or brush and wash down your fence, rinse straight away.
