HEADER

The header is a piece of metal that comes in many types of finishes that is used as a mechanical fastener along the top of the glass. A header is only used when there is at least 1 panel of glass (in addition to the door). The headers that we supply are 1 ΒΌ" high and have a curved face profile that makes them appear to be smaller.

Header

Headers are optional on some of our products, but not all. Designs utilizing pivot hinges require either a header, or need to have the hinge mounted to a bulkhead or the ceiling. Designs requesting doors hinging on an adjacent glass panel will require either a header, or need to have the top of the adjacent panel attached to a bulkhead or the ceiling. Headers, like U-channel, can be more cost effective than using taller, oversized glass panels (many times requiring more than two people to properly handle) building bulkheads or tiling ceilings and are easier to install.
