The Rafterline glazing bar system is based on the same principles as the company's Skyline range without the internal stalk of the bar, and is regularly requested for domestic use, such as conservatory roofs.
The glazing bars' strength is provided by structural timber rafters, which allow larger constructions. The maximum span of the system is only limited by the integrity of the rafters.
The Rafterline glazing system can be used with both single- and double-glazed units up to 32mm thick and can be combined with vents if required. It is suitable for double-glazed applications where compliance with Building Regulations Document L is a requirement.
When used with double glazing and thermal breaks the system is capable of providing an overall U Value of approximately 1.8W/m²K.
The timber rafters are completely protected from the elements and create an appealing visual effect inside the building.
The external aluminium glazing system provides excellent weather resistance and is not subject to the regular maintenance normally required for timber glazing systems.
This popular system of glazing bars is ideal for supply-only contracts where the thoughtful design of sections allows for relatively speedy installation by a competent tradesman. The glazing bars can be ordered oversized for on-site cutting if exact sizes are not known at order stage.
