226/261 Rafter Gasket System

For use with Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheet
in Pitched Roofglazing Applications

          

For installing multiwall polycarbonate sheet thicknesses from 4mm to 20mm on wooden rafters.

  EPDM 'Rubber' Rafter Gasket Ref 261. Should be nailed to rafters through the centre channel. Nails to be 300mm apart.
  Screw-on Aluminium Capping Bar Ref 226 with 226G Gasket fitted. Cap should be fixed down with screws no more than 400mm apart.
  Push-fit Polycarbonate Stop End Plate Ref 226EP gives a neat finish.
  Aluminium Right Angle 'F' Profile Ref 222 supports the sides of the glazing sheet and weathers the edge of the roof slope. Should be fixed to barge boards with screws 300mm apart. Use a spirit level to ensure that the sheet remains level.
  Nylon Fixing Button (with Foam Washer) Ref 244 for spot fixing to rafters, purlins, etc, on roofs with a slope of 10 or more. Use sharp bits to drill an 18mm hole in multiwall sheet. Do NOT overtighten - it should be possible to just turn the button by hand.
Anti-Dust Tape Ref 4840. Use at eaves (gutter) ends of multiwall sheet to help prevent dust entry, whilst allowing condensation drainage. 25mm wide for sheet 4mm-8mm thick; 38mm wide for sheet 10mm-20mm thick.
Aluminium 'U' Profile Ref 252. Covers and protects Anti-Dust Tape, whilst giving a rigid and neat finish to the cut sheet edge.
Sealing Tape Ref 4810. Permanently closes ridge (top) ends of multiwall sheet. Should be used in combination with 4840 Tape above. Widths as above.
Butyl Flashing, Ref 200/10, ensures a weatherproof seal at the ridge.

There is a Easy Fit roof glazing bar or panel system suitable for most pitched roof glazing applications. These include commercial and industrial rooflights, school walkways and covers, hospital corridors, station canopies, supermarket entrances, conservatories and lean-to sunrooms. In addition, there is a cross-section of fixing accessories and complementary items to give a totally professional finish to your glazing. Whilst these systems are designed primarily for the easy installation of multiwall polycarbonate sheet glazing, many of them will also accommodate glass.

When installing polycarbonate plastic sheeting, we advise that you refer to the manufacturer's literature in relation to: the ratio between sheet thickness and width; the distances for glazing bar centres; sheet expansion allowances. To avoid stress in the glazing sheet, you should not overtighten the screw-on bars and accessories.

We also recommend the use of screws and bolts, as other metals may fail through natural chemical reaction with aluminium. Such screws are available in the Easy Fit range. They come complete with matching coloured snap-on plastic caps.

All aluminium bars and extrusions are manufactured to BS1474: 1987 and BS6063. All coloured bars are polyester powder-coated for a maintenance-free long life
