This gray silicone glazing bead helps hold the glass into the frame of Hehr Hall-Mark 10 Series Clear-View awning-type windows (used on Airstreams from 1958 to 1960 and 1958 Fan trailers).
It is applied as a final step after the glass is bedded in the frame using our butyl glazing tape (VTS-137). This bead is pressed into place in front of the glass and cut at 45 degree angles in the corners with a scissors.
Silicone is a premium rubber that does not shrink or dry out over time. When stretched, it will want to return to its original shape over time, so do not stretch it when fitting it. If you do, you may end up with gaps in your corners over time.
If your Airstream is 1961-1965, you probably have Hall-Mark 12 windows (1200 series) that use a bead with a similar but slightly different profile that this one. That glazing strip is also available through Vintage Trailer Supply as our product code VTS-890.With the exception of the shortest trailers, all 1958 to 1960 Airstream rectangular windows use this material, but please check carefully before ordering. Make sure your windows say 10XX in the outer sill. It usually says 1008 or 1009. Starting in 1958, Airstream used the Clear-View windows on the front and back of most trailers while continuing with the Hehr Standard windows on the sides. For 1959 and 1960, Airstream was using the Clear-View windows throughout the trailers. The only exception is the short and inexpensive (at the time) trailers like Airstream Pacers. Those shorter trailers continued to use the Hehr Standard throughout.
