Transcript Boosting Business with— Kawneer Store Frontsj You Will Find Every Advantage, Structural and Commercial, Incorporated in a Kawneer Store Front S WHAT is true of the sash holds true of all Kawneer construction, we ask you to note the architectural elegance of its lines; the simplicity of its general make-up, the efficient provision for ventilation, drainage and glass safety. There are only three parts—gutter, face and setting block. All mechanical contrivances have been eliminated for they only uselessly complicate the installation. Just fasten the gutter, set the glass (from the outside) on the leather-capped setting- block, and screw on the face. Easy enough! It is absolutely impossible for the glass to come in contact with the screws. The deep gutter and large holes provide for perfect ventilation and drainage. With properly constructed windows absolute freedom from frost, fog, and sweat is assured. Your windows will be usable 365 days of the year (one more, leap years). This ventilation is controlled by means of a slide, so that during the summer, the holes can be closed and the windows be made dust tight. The grip with which the glass is held, face and gutter, is resilient—the only safe way to hold glass. The truth of this is self-evident. It is all a question of vibration absorption. If the setting is rigid, or semi-rigid, it transmits every shock, every tremor; the glass is continually jarred and bumped by every passing vehicle. This sort of a setting allows no "give" for expansion and contraction of glass due to change in temperature, or movement of glass due to wind pressure. On the other hand a resilient grip absorbs all vibration, transmitting none to the glass, and allowing for the expansion, contraction and "giving" of the plates. It's like packing eggs in a wooden box, so that every knock on the box breaks an egg or more, or packing them in the cushioned cartons, which the government demands for parcel post transportation, which absorb the shocks and save the eggs. Complete resiliency means glass safety. Nineteen
