White SNAPA Snap-Fix Gable Bar for Lean-to Roofs

(Choice of lengths available)

Protective closure for gable end rafters!

Low cost snap-fix glazing bar with closing drip face for gable ends of smaller DIY lean-to roof projects. Tough and long-lasting PVC-u extruded base bar and top cap for polycarbonate sheets. Supplied with End Cap and screw.

Extruded durable PVC-u Base Bar featuring a toothed upstand with locking points for securing the PVC-u top capping. The capping has coextruded seals that form a weather-tight pressure seal on the top of glazing material once the PVC-u capping has been pressed firmly into position over polycarbonate sheets of 10mm, 16mm, 25mm, 32mm and 35mm thickness.

NEW Stronger SNAPA Bar! The new PVC-u SNAPA bars are extruded with significantly thicker walls, which provides greater strength and rigidity over the low-grade aluminium of the old SNAPA bars.

Features & Benefits

  • Neat closure for gable rafter bars
  • Durable PVC-u extrusion
  • Cuts easily with standard hand saw
  • Simple snap-fix cap fitting
  • Perfect for simple lean-to roofs
  • Coextruded seal compresses onto glazing
  • For 10/16/25/32 and 35mm sheets
  • Matching Gable Bar option
  • Low-cost glazing solution

Retro-fitted to existing timber roofs, SNAPA can encase and seal problem leak areas and breath a new lease of life. SNAPA is equally effective on new installations too, offering a capping solution for low-cost lean-to roofs. Common uses for SNAPA Snap-Fix Glazing Bars include: Carports, Greenhouses, Canopies, Covered Walkways and Pergolas.

Unlike many snap-fix rafter capping solutions for lean-to roofs, SNAPA has a matching Gable Bar with an extended drip face for left and right starter rafters of a lean-to roof, so no need to improvise or compromise.

Fitting the SNAPA Snap-Fix Glazing Bar

The following is a brief summary of typical installation. Technical Information and further Fitting Advice is available.

  1. Prepare Base Bars and Top Cappings by cutting to length, ensuring that they will overhang the correct amount over the gutter.
  2. Fix base bar to timber rafter by screwing through central channel every 200-300mm and no more than 75mm from either end.
  3. Prepare polycarbonate sheets by cutting to size, before fitting breather tape and End Closure/Drip Trim. Position over bars and check that any protective film is peeled back from sides. Eaves Seal Foam can be used along eaves to support the underside of the sheets.
  4. Push Top Cappings down into position over the Base Bar upstand and tap down using a soft/rubber headed hammer.
