Self Supporting Glazing Bars

Rafter Glazing Bars

​ThermGard provides amongst the best thermal performance currently on the market. A neat box bar design, ThermGard provides a cost-effective alternative to more expensive sloped curtain walling systems without sacrificing aesthetics. Various box rafters are available to suit small or large spans. Alternatively the carrier rail may be mounted on top of continuous timber rafters - see our ThermGard-R glazing bars. A continuous screw on pressure plate with gaskets provides outstanding glass retention and a choice of decorative external covers are available to provide either contemporary glass roof appearance or a more traditional heritage style for roof lanterns on period buildings.

“Lonsdale is our ‘go-to’ company when we need a quality rooflight system” - Stuart Wood, Ingleton Wood Architects
