Default Poly blind window questions

Those of you with poly blinds, if you have the deluxe deerview windows, did you frame them or just run screws into the poly?



Iím about to start on this guy.

I just use self taping screws, they seal up and I have not had a leak yet.

I am in for answers as well, I think I am going with 3 12x24 deluxe windows and a 24Ē x 60Ē door. What route are you going for your door?

The windows are good to go. The door I have is the 30x60. Iíll most likely have to frame it out.

Will the deerview windows work on the round fiberglass tanks without framing them in?

Not unless you use a lot of sealant. Even after I did that, the windows still leaked.

I originally just screwed mine in but you canít really get it tight enough to pull the poly flat to the frame. Then when the poly expand and contracts the latches donít work well. Eventually went back and built frames. Much happier.

I had planned on making a frame out of treated wood and mounting the windows to the frame. The frames would be curved and routed to fit but flat on the face if that makes sense?

Makes perfect sense, thanks. I figured I would use wood cut to the shape of the blind , screw that down then attach the windows.
