There are many benefits to adding window accessories to your home, and here are some of them:
Here are a few cool window accessories you might find interesting, and they’re all available on this page:
Frame Packers” are small, essential tools used during the installation of window frames. They help ensure the frames are level and properly supported, so your windows fit perfectly and function as they should.
When windows are installed, it is crucial to make sure that the frame is straight and even. This is important not only for the appearance of your windows but also for their performance. Improperly installed windows can lead to drafts, water leaks, and difficulties in opening and closing.
By using Frame Packers, you can be confident that your windows will not only look great but will also be correctly aligned, which is essential for their smooth operation and long-term durability.
White Casement Wedges are made of durable material and come in various sizes and angles to accommodate different window frame needs. They are designed to be inserted between the window frame and the window sash (the part that holds the glass and moves within the frame). By placing these wedges in the right positions, you can create an even space between the frame and sash, preventing any tilting or shifting over time.
Not only do White Casement Wedges help with proper alignment, but they also contribute to the overall performance of your casement windows. When your windows are correctly installed, you can enjoy better insulation, preventing drafts, water leaks, and noise from entering your home. Additionally, this ensures that your windows open and close with ease, improving their lifespan and functionality.
A “Window Glazing Kit” is an assortment of tools, specially selected by MB DIY for the installation and maintenance of glazing units in windows. These kits help make the process of working with window glazing much easier and more efficient. The kit includes a Thor Hammer, a Straight End Chisel (or bead knife), and a Glazing Shovel, each with its specific purpose.
A Thor Hammer is a uniquely crafted hammer intended for the removal of the beading that secures the glass within its position. The beading is a narrow strip of material, usually made of wood or plastic, which secures the glass within the window frame. By using the Thor Hammer, you can gently tap and loosen the beading without causing any damage to the window or the glass.
Straight End Chisel (or bead knife) works together with the Thor Hammer to remove the beading. It has a straight, flat edge, which allows you to slide it between the beading and the window frame, making it easier to pry the beading away. This tool helps ensure that the beading is removed safely and efficiently.
Glazing Shovel is used to lift the glazing unit, which is the part of the window that includes the glass pane and any supporting materials. By placing the Glazing Shovel under the glazing unit, you can lift it up to insert packers underneath. Packers are small, flat pieces of material that help level and support the glazing unit within the window frame. This ensures that the window is stable, properly aligned, and prevents any movement or shifting over time.
