Flush Channel Installation GuideEnd CapsThe Node Flush Channel can be provided with or without end caps as project design requirements. End caps are factoryinstalled as requested.END CAPEND CAPFlush Channel with Soft Cell PanelFlush Channel with Weave PanelFlush Channel with Weave PanelFlush Channel with Soft CellFigure 7Cutting Node Flush Channels to LengthWhere possible, the channel should be ordered to length based upon contractor site measurements.Since end caps are factory installed and welded in place, cutting channels to length is not recommended where endcaps have been selected. If the channel must be cut to length, this should be done at the end, rather than a joint, tominimize visual impact. The maximum length that can be trimmed is defined by the position of the bridge bracket.Node Device InstallationNode devices can be integrated into the system at design stage and can be purchased separately from the NodeChannel.Outer Node housings will be factory installed in the required locations.The Node devices are installed in the housing by aligning the snap tabs and pushing the inner casing directly into thehousing.OUTER NODE HOUSINGINSERT NODE DEVICE INTO HOUSINGFigure 8v001 Flush Channel Installation Guide6
