Exitex Capex Snap Down Glazing Bar 10-25mm

(Choice of colour and length)

Low in cost, high in quality!

Strong aluminium base bar with durable, maintenance-free uPVC top capping and end cap. Secures and seals polycarbonate sheets along the timber rafters of wooden conservatory, lean-to roofs, carports and shelters. Suitable for glazing of 10mm, 16mm, 20mm and 25mm thickness.

Base Bars are screwed to the top of timber rafters to provide a seat for the roof material, before Top Cappings are pushed down firmly, until their toothed legs grip the relevant locking point on the Base Bar up-stand. Weather sealing is provided by rubber flapper seals that are coextruded along the top capping, whilst the underside is sealed by long-lasting EPDM rubber gasket that fits along either side of the base bar.

Features & Benefits

  • Easy-fit System - screw base to rafter and snap capping down
  • Top Cap Flipper Seal - compression gasket for weather-proofing
  • Rubber Base Gaskets - act as a seat and under-seal for glazing
  • Aluminium Base Bar - strong and lightweight extrusion
  • Long-lasting Material - durable and UV-stable parts
  • Maintenance-free - top capping needs no annual painting

Fitting the Exitex Capex Snap Down Glazing Bar

The following is offered as a guide to typical installation, and not intended as comprehensive fitting instructions.

  1. Cut Base Bar and Top Capping to same length as polycarbonate sheet
  2. Fit EPDM rubber gasket (may need to be torn into two along the length) to track on either side of Base Bar
  3. Pre-drill fixing holes along length of base bar and between toothed up-stand
  4. Fixings should be no more than 500mm apart and within 100mm from either end
  5. Screw the Base Bars to rafters using 5mm wood screws
  6. Peel protective film from edges of polycarbonate sheets to prevent being strapped by glazing bar
  7. Position Top Capping over Base Bar and push legs firmly into up-stand to ensure seal
  8. Fit end closure to polycarbonate sheet, using thin bead of silicone on underside of top face
  9. Apply a little silicone sealant to underside of End Cap top lip and push firmly onto glazing bar

Additional considerations

  • It is assumed that polycarbonate sheet length is cut with allowance for a 50mm overhang into the gutter.
  • A glazing width deduction of 21mm from rafter centres will allow for Base Bar up-stand, plus expansion and contraction.
  • Fixing buttons can be used along eaves or purlins to secure sheets that are large, or in exposed locations.
  • Capex Snap Down works best with roofs over 5° pitch.
