PlasGard Glazing Bars for Glass or Polycarbonate


Glazing Bars


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.

What are PlasGard glazing bars made of?

PlasGard glazing bars are made of aluminium alloy 6063-T6. It is most commonly used as an architectural alloy in intricate extrusions because of its high corrosion resistance and welding capabilities. 

Do PlasGard Glazing Bars provide insulation? 

PlasGard Glazing Bars do not provide insulation. If you require a thermally broken system for insulation purposes, please consider our ThermGard ALM100 & TG50 systems, which provide enhanced insulation. 

What are PlasGard glazing bars used for?

PlasGard glazing bars are suitable for single glazing with glass from 6mm to 25mm and are used to divide a single pane of glass into smaller panes. They help to enhance the rigidity and structural integrity of your windows and make your windows look very aesthetically pleasing.
