First, metal photographs are mounted at the lowest level, the following sheets are stacked with the previous. To secure the profile sheets, only hardware having rubber washers are used, when screwing them, it is impossible to clamp them very much, since the rubber gaskets may be deformed, which will lead in the future to possible leaks.
