Aluminium rafter supported ridge bars are high quality, durable, and long-lasting glazing bars. They are lightweight, which means that they are easy to install, they are compatible with a wide selection of end caps, finials, and crests that not only help ensure rigidity and strength, but they can also help improve the look and design of the glazing installation.
Ideal for use in conservatories and orangeries, ridge bars can also be combined with other frames and bars to create an ideal glazing installation for carports, summerhouses, and other outbuildings and installations. At Glazing Systems, we specialise in the provision of high-quality glazing products for any application, and we are always on hand to answer any questions or queries that you have.
Aluminium is more expensive than plastic, but it offers longer lasting and sturdier installations. Its lightweight nature means that an aluminium ridge bar is easy to install, while its corrosion and rust proof nature means that it is ideal for use in glazing.
You can rely on the support and strength offered by the bar, without having to worry that rain and other elements will cause lasting damage. The rafter supported ridge bars on this page use all-aluminium components, ensuring structural rigidity and strength.
Rafter Supported Bars
While self-supported glazing bars bear their own weight, rafter supported ridge bars instead attach directly to the timber frame of your conservatory or other room. They use the frame to help bear the weight of the glazing installation, which means that they will last for longer and provide greater results. Rafter supported bars are preferred when using thick polycarbonate, and especially when using double glazed glass panes.
End Caps, Finials, And Crests
End caps are essential to a glazing installation. They prevent rain, snow, and dirt and debris from getting into the glazing frame itself. This can help prevent rust and corrosion, and it will stop the windows and doors from leaking. It also helps keep the frame in place, and while every aluminium rafter supported ridge bar includes a single end cap, at Glazing Systems we also sell separate end caps and supply a host of finials and crests that provide even greater aesthetic appeal to the glazing installation.
Dimensions And Design
When buying any glazing bar or roofing bar, ensure that you buy the right dimensions. Ridge bars are used at the top of a roof installation and the gasket feet and covering are designed to allow for any pitch of roof. Choose the length of bar that best fits your installation.
You can also choose any standard RAL colour. We have brown and white in stock, and these are ready to be delivered as soon as you need them. Alternatively, provide us with the RAL colour that you want. The bars can be manufactured in your chosen colour and delivered straight to site.
