    So, if I wanted to add sash jammers or restricters, say, how far does the metal section run into the corner (usually) to ensure the fixings locate into it?

    I read somewhere that during profile welding, the metal does not run all the way into the corner, which is fair enough, but how far?

    TIA

    I assume that is the minimum recommended distance from the corner for a fixing hole. Is that correct? If so, how close is the metal to the corner weld - surely not 4"?
