ThermGard Self Supporting Glazing Bars
THERMGARD SLIM-LINE GLAZING BARS
Self Supporting Glazing Bars
RAFTER GLAZING BARS
A neat 40mm wide box bar design, ThermGard provides a cost-effective alternative to more expensive sloped curtain walling systems without sacrificing aesthetics. Various slim-line 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.
