Uses of The Sunwood 60mm wide Rafter Bar

The 60mm wide Sunwood Aluminium Capped Glazing bars are perfectly suited for use in all glass roofs. This is the case for single skinned glass to double glazed units. They are equally suited to other roofing sheets. This includes all thicknesses of multi-wall polycarbonate and solid polycarbonate sheets. Visually the bar is stylish and has a sleek low profile. It also has neat rounded screw concealment capping. This makes it the ideal choice for high end, quality roofs. A very popular choice for timber conservatory roofs. This timber rafter bar is perfect for orangeries and atriums. This screw down rafter glazing bar is also an ideal choice if you want to refurbish or waterproof an existing wooden conservatory roof.

Options

These aluminium capped rafter bars are available in two widths of 50mm and 60mm. Choose the best width to suit the width of your wooden rafters. Both are suitable for all glazing thicknesses. The screw down design gives you a robust solution ideal for use in coastal or other exposed locations. Available in white or brown here or also in anthracite grey or mill finish options. The mill finish bars can be powder coated to other RAL shades at additional cost.

Fitting

These rafter bars are very easy to fit. They come with all of the gaskets you will need. They also include stainless steel screws. Installation is easy. Simply sit the base gasket directly onto your timber rafter. Your chosen glazing sits on top of this on either side. At the ends of your roof insert an Aluminium F Section into the outside of the bar to easily create an end bar. This will balance the bar and neatly cloak off the end of your roof.

Use with the leg facing downwards for an open ended roof edge or with the prong facing upwards if it is against a wall and you are going to flash over it.

Next fit the gaskets into the aluminium top cap, this needs two gaskets that sit atop the glazing giving a watertight seal.

Now screw the bars firmly down between the glazing sheets and at the ends using the central groove as a guide. This ensures a good central fixing through to your rafter. There is a pre-cast tab on the back of the bar end cap which fits neatly into the central channel on the bar top cap. This has a pre-drilled hole to accommodate the countersunk screw which is included with the end cap.

Finally the screw concealment profile is then ‘clipped in.’ This will complete the smooth, sleek look.
