Glass retainers for garage doors are unique to each manufacturer. Where one may screw in their retainer another my use glues or tapes to hold their glass or panels into their frames. Arm-R-Lite’s aluminum and glass sectional doors use a 2-part retainer system to ensure the glass or panels are secured safely and easily into our welded frames.
Arm-R-Lite Retainer Beading for Glass and Panels
The first part of our retainer system is our soft vinyl channel that surrounds the edges of the glass or panel. The vinyl channel protects the glass and panel against direct contact with the aluminum frame and our snap-in beading.
The rigid snap in beading is the final piece needed to secure glass or panels into our aluminum frames. The beading snaps into place without the use of glues, tape, screws, or calking. This makes replacing damaged beading simple and easy.
The snap-in beading and vinyl channel glass retainers are available in different sizes depending on your glass or panel thickness. If you are looking for replacement parts, the easiest way to ensure the proper size of your glass retainer is to collect the WO# off of the original door. You can find out where to look for the WO# by following the directions here.
