Fitting

PVC capped rafter bars are also known as ‘snap down’, ‘snap tight’ or ‘knock down’ bars due to the way they are installed. Before installing thread the gaskets into the groove on either side of the aluminium base section. If the gasket arrives in one piece simply tear this down the middle to separate it into the two gaskets. Screw the strong aluminium base bar down into your rafters between the upstands. We recommend that they are screwed every 300 - 400mm and around 75mm from the ends. Your polycarbonate sheets are then laid on top of the gaskets in the base bar separated by the bar upstands. The upstand has dedicated locking points for the sheet thicknesses so when the PVC caps are knocked down the prongs on the caps lock into these points for a secure fix. As well as the two base gaskets, the PVC top cap has co-extruded gaskets on both edges to give your roof a watertight seal. Finally the bar end cap is pushed into the end of the bar. 

The bar is easily adapted from an intermediate or joining bar into an end bar by adding a Universal Edge Trim (PVC F section). Simply leave out the gasket from the outside of the aluminium base of the bar and click the prongs of the universal edge trim in its place. This will fill the empty oustide of the bar, balancing it up and neatly cloaking off the edge of your roof.
