I had to replace the rubber gasket on an old window this week. Due to the design of the window you could remove the glass from outside. So due to a security risk, the owner wanted the gasket replaced with a double sided tape which will fix the glass to the frame.
If you have externally glazed windows which are fairly old they may pose a security risk as the beading can be removed and the glass taken out fairly easily. Rather than fitting new windows the glass is sealed to the frame with a strong adhesive tape for a relatively low cost.
