The purpose of glazing bars

Thirty years within an industry may be a long time, but it has been enough for us to evolve our services to a point where we can comfortably call them top notch. Stocking a wide collection of building materials, including roofing sheets and composite panels, we have a suitable solution for nearly every situation. Brilliantly priced and produced using top quality substances, our products are ones you can depend on.

When working with polycarbonate roof sheets, the precise method for fitting them largely relies on where it is you’re positioning them. Assuming that you are utilising it for a carport or conservatory roof, you shall be fixing it through the use of glazing bars.

Normally, the glazing bars are screwed along the joist’s middle section. Afterwards, the polycarbonate sheeting is cut in a way that permits it to fit in-between them and be laid nicely into place. When cutting your sheets in order to position them between the bars, careful measurements are a necessity.

The majority of glazing bars come with bottom and top segments, with the lower one being fastened to the joist and the top one clipping to it after the sheets have been placed so that they can cap the joint. The sheets themselves aren’t actually bolted to anything however. The reason why is that the glazing bars are made to hold the sheets in position, whilst enabling contraction in cold environments and expansion during warmer days. To make certain that everything goes smoothly, clear and informative instructions should be supplied along with the materials.

At Peter Wragge Supplies, our roofing sheets and composite panels are designed in ways that allow them to meet the building regulations that are currently in effect. Furthermore, they are also 100% compatible with many of the items from our accessory range, such as the fixings, sealants, and flashings.
