Self Supporting Bars
When adding glazing to any roof, it is important that the frames and glazing bars you choose are strong enough to support the weight of the glazing. Where a timber frame is accessible, you can attach glazing bars for timber frames. These use the strength and rigidity of the frame itself to help support the weight, but the frame isn’t always accessible, especially when you’re shopping for wall end bars.
Wall end bars attach directly to the main building of the house, and they form the very edge of the glazing frame. Often, there is no timber frame here, and the glazing bars need to be able to support themselves and carry their own weight.
These aluminium bars are designed to be able to carry the weight of polycarbonate or glass glazing, providing the support that is needed and ensuring that your glazing installation will last for years to come.
Aluminium Bars And End Caps
Aluminium is used in the construction of glazing bars because of its combination of lightweight structure and strength. It can be easily lifted into place, and just as easily fixed. There is less screwing and fixing involved with self supporting bars, simply because they do not attach directly to any frame. Despite being lightweight and easy to manage, aluminium is strong and durable. It is resistant to rain and other elements, ensuring that the frame itself will not corrode or rust, providing further strength and durability.
Self supporting wall end bars are made with an aluminium frame before being covered in strong and reliable plastic. The plastic covering comes in white or brown as standard, and can also be supplied in any standard RAL colourway to ensure you get the design and finish that you want.
