Considerations & Fitting

Glazing Bar Spacing

It's important to space glazing bars in such a way that the roof will withstand calculated snow and wind loads based on it's geographic location. The majority of UK roofs should be designed to withstand a load of 600N/m2. However some parts of Scotland and the North East may need to be built to withstand 800N/m2 or even 1KN/m2.

The following graph and table shows the maximum Bar Spacing relative to the Bar Length and is based on the common 600N/m2 load using 25mm multiwall polycarbonate.

Fitting the Eaves Beam is fairly straight forward. Once cut to desired length, it can be easly fixed to frames, posts or brickwork.

Eaves Fillers

The gaps between the Glazing Bars on the underside of the polycarbonate can be closed off using Eaves Fillers. These are optional PVCu profiles with rubber seals that cushion and seal against the underside of the polycarbonate panels.
