Using this Endstop Bar as a Starter Bar for SNAPA Snap-Fix system
Using as Gable Starter Bar
When using as a Starter Bar on gable end, the bar is used with drip face pointing downwards and outwards, with underside of bottom face resting on gable timber rafter.
Cut Starter Bar slightly longer than polycarbonate sheets and drill fixing holes through the drip as required. Fit to the polycarbonate sheet with sealant applied to underside of bottom face and press firmly down onto gable rafter. Screwed through pre-drilled fixing holes to secure and fit polycarbonate end closure, once it has been cut back to fit around Starter Bar.
Using as Wall Starter Bar
When using as a Starter Bar for abutting a wall, the bar should be turned so that the 'F' is on it's head with the long length acting as an upstand against the wall. What would have been the top will then rest on the timber rafter.
Cut Starter Bar slightly longer than polycarbonate sheets and drill fixing holes through the drip which will act as an upstand. Drill fixing holes in wall, in-line with holes in upstand. If using nylon sleaves, insert in fixing holes, before applying sealant to back of upstand and underside of upturned bar. Push bar firmly into place and secure with fixings to wall. Finish by fitting end closure, once it has been cut back to fit around Starter Bar.
The above is offered only as a guide and not as complete fitting instructions for all scenarios.
