FIXclip-Profile GLE20, GLE20 Plus, GLE20 N

The FIXclip-Profile is the first and only fastening system to enable fastening and sealing in one operation. It saves assembly time and convinces with its special profile geometry.

The FIXclip- Profile is made of UV and weather-resistant plastic and is available in five versions GLE 17, GLE 18, GLE 20 or GLE 17, and GLE 20 Plus with a separate wedge seal.

  • Fastening and sealing in one operation.
  • Cost effective – reducing labor.
  • The perfect look – no visible fasteners
  • Simple snapping on of the glazing bead.
  • Safe – eliminates damage of glass pane that otherwise occurs due to misplacement of shooting nails.
  • Flexible – mounting can be done at manufacturing and/or on site.
  • Tested – meets all the requirements.
  • Fast mounting of the profile with screws or nails.
  • GLE20 Plus – with separate wedge seal for easy and fast mounting directly on the construction site
  • GLE20 Plus – easy to remove / disassembly possible if needed.
  • GLE20 Plus – suitable for both wedge sealing and wet sealing.
  • High quality material properties – elastic, can be nailed, UV and weather resistant, resistant to varnishes, glazes and cleaning detergents
  • For wood windows and wood-aluminum windows, as well as fixed glazing of windows and doors.
  • Burglary protection – RC1 and RC2 safety can be achieved by using screws to fix the dry glazing systems (must be verified by a separate test of the element).

Glazing bead removal with a bead groove milling machine

The process of glazing bead removal is typically carried out without causing significant damage to the bead, enabling subsequent reinstallation. In the least favorable scenario, the lower cheek may break off, necessitating the use of a new bead.
The initial bead proves to be the most challenging, while experience suggests that the remaining three beads are comparatively easier to detach.
TIP: Employ a bead groove milling machine for efficient glazing bead removal


Fast and safe glazing – sealing and fixing in one step: For more than five years, the window manufacturer Döpfner has been using this concept and has been producing up to 150 windows a day with the Knapp FIXclip-Profile system.
