Circular penetrations on the inside, such as pipes or cables, can be easily, quickly and reliably sealed with the single-sided high-performance adhesive tape Rissan to make them airtight. .
.
Advantages:
- Extremely strong adhesion – reliable and durable
- Smooth carrier material – clings tightly around pipes and cables
- Elastic – remains sealed despite structural movements
- Suitable on wood, hardwood-based panel materials, gypsum fiber-boards, plasterboards, cement fiber-boards, metals, hard plastics, electric cables

Our client, Hank, sent us this fantastic follow-up message expressing how pleased he is with his Alpen selection. "Todd, these windows and doors are a delight to install and use. The front door is so bomb-proof, very satisfying, and the functionality of the windows is far superior to the old window hardware." .

These Gutmann Sill Extensions are accompanying Advantage's Smartwin windows out on the Millhaus project. Have you thought about adding sill extenders to your next project? Extenders create a slightly sloping surface as a drainage plane and are easy for builders to work with; however, note they are for Euro-style windows only. .
