The eaves beam is fixed at the foot of a roof slope. The fixings to be used are dependent on the structure the eaves beam is being fixed into. If installed correctly, the eaves beam will look like a lower case letter ‘p’ shape when viewed from the side with fixing made through the downturned leg.
Eaves beam end plates are fitted to the ends of the eaves beam using the end plate fixing screws supplied.
The glazing bar base is then screwed to the eaves beam and the glazing sheet installed as per the fixing instructions available for each bar system.
A gap will be created between the top of the eaves beam and the underside of the glazing sheet, unless this gap is filled, rain, dirt, insects will be allowed in.
Mill finish as well as polyester powder coated white (RAL9910 satin) and brown (RAL8040 satin) are available as standard. We can also supply the 291 eaves beam painted to a specific RAL colour.
