Our ceramic paper kits comes in two widths 6mm or 10mm wide by 2.5mm thick. They include 2 metres of ceramic paper. It is very soft and easy to cut with a pair of scissors and is only ever used between the glass and the door in the recess. You will only need to use ceramic paper if where your glass sits there is no groove. If there is a groove you will need to fit soft rope. Please see “Rope & Kits”.
Firstly remove the old seal and any traces of debris and adhesive using a wire brush.
Secondly cut strips of the ceramic paper to fit around where the glass will fit.
Apply a tiny smear of adhesive around where the glass will sit.
Then lay the ceramic paper strips around the edge on top of the adhesive and press down gently ensuring it meets all the way around.
Next place your glass on top in position and replace the screws and clips.
When replacing clips & screws hand tighten plus a 1/4 of a turn with a screwdriver or spanner. No tighter as when the fire is alight the metal expands but the glass doesn’t. If the clips are too tight the glass will crack.
