Glazing Bars For Glass or Polycarbonate

PlasGard is a simple two part glazing bar with continuous screw on cap. Approved by all the major polycarbonate sheeting manufacturers for use with multi-wall and solid plastics, PlasGard is also suitable for single glazing with glass from 6mm to 25mm. Ideal for unheated spaces such as canopies, verandahs, car ports, shelters or rail platforms. Easy to install, PlasGard glazing bars offer excellent value and a wider glazing rebate providing superior glass retention for exposed locations or areas where bomb-blast mitigation is required making it ideal for large public transport hubs and rail stations.
