Storefront systems can drastically enhance commercial and retail environments by improving brand identity and visibility for various types of businesses. They provide architects, specifiers and glazing contractors with shorter lead times without sacrificing customization, quality or reliability. While storefronts present themselves as economically viable options, they meet and exceed high performance and operation standards when properly measured, fabricated and installed.

The foundation
A durable storefront system starts with well-designed sill and sill flashing components that protect the storefront from the damaging effects of air and water infiltration. The sill profile should always have a full-depth pocket that can directly attach to the substrate. The sill flashing should possess a full height leg on the storefront’s interior, complete with a silicone sealant-filled cap bead that blocks unwanted weather elements. Be wary of a sill flashing system that isn’t full height or doesn’t have a retaining leg as this will cause blind seals to form due to the fastener penetrating the sill flashing after installation.

Measurements
First and foremost, it is important to take precise measurements of the entrance’s masonry opening. Start by measuring the net frame height to determine if the opening is level, and to find the highest point of the elevation. Then, carefully re-measure the opening’s height across several locations; remember, the height of the installed storefront’s frame should equal the shortest dimensions of the opening, minus 5/8 inch. After you’ve noted the appropriate height for your storefront frame, measure the width of the rough opening at the top, middle and bottom. The sill flashing (bottom) length should equal the shortest dimension measured, minus ½ inch. When installing storefronts, 3/8-inch to ½-inch joints are most commonly used throughout the industry and are recommended by most sealant manufacturers.

Once you have all of your measurements and begin to fabricate and install your storefront, all work on the system should begin at the bench marks and/or column center lines noted by the general contractor. Always make sure that the storefront components are installed plumb, level and true, in compliance with the manufacturer’s installation instructions, contract and construction documents.
