PVC Rafter Supported Glazing Bars

Snap fix rafter supported glazing bars, supplied by Glazing Systems, offer a more aesthetically pleasing finish for your glazing application. They are also easier to affix, which reduces installation cost and makes the installation process quicker and easier. Available as standard in white or brown, but also available in other colours by order, snap fix rafter supported glazing bars, are a great budget glazing bar option, and the range of available sizes means that they can be used in almost any glazing installation, whether you are finishing a carport or conservatory.

If you need a longer lasting glazing solution or you require extra strength and support from the installation, we do advise that you use a stronger solution like the Alukap-XR system. At Glazing Systems we offer all of these and other glazing solutions. You can view our full catalogue online or contact us with any questions you have about our products and services.

Plastic Glazing Bars

Plastic is an inexpensive but tough product. It will withstand the elements for years, before becoming discoloured or damaged. Because it is lightweight and surprisingly strong, it acts as a very good basis for creating glazing installations, while the cost of the material helps ensure that plastic glazing bars provide a solid, budget option.

Rafter Supported Bars

Snap Fix rafter supported glazing bars are made from plastic and include a plastic cap end. They are extremely popular as a budget option, and they have been designed to be quick and easy to install. The parts literally snap together, minimising the time it takes for installation. The range of bar dimensions means that they will work with polycarbonate ranging from 10mm to 35mm thickness, although the manufacturers recommend that this system not be used with glass.

Rafter supported bars screw directly into the timber frame, which means that they offer additional support when compared to self-supported bars. These bars also tend to be less expensive than self-supported glazing bars.

End Caps

The Snap Fix rafter supported glazing bars include plastic end caps. The end caps are an integral part of any glazing bar installation. They keep the sections of the bar together, and as long as they are in place and undamaged, they will prevent the panes from slipping and prevent rain and wind from getting in through the windows.

Dimensions And Design

We have a large selection of rafter supported glazing bars, including the affordable Snap Fix plastic bars. We stock 2mm, 3mm, 5mm, and 6mm variants, and because the bars are made from plastic they can easily be cut down to size. You can buy them in white or brown, or provide us with a RAL colour reference when you place your order, and we will produce the colour you want, to order.
