Our Skyline Box range of glazing bars offer an economical roof glazing solution when compared with curtain walling roofing systems. The glazing bar's strength is provided by an internal box section. The glazing bar is weathered by a screw on pressure cap (PC1) with a choice of plain (PC2) or ornate (PC3) cosmetic outer snap-on cappings to conceal all fixing screws.



When used with high performance double glazing units with warm edge spacer bars and argon gas filling this system can achieve an overall U Value of 1.4W/ m²K to comply with Building Regulation Document L.


Our Skyline range of glazing bars offer an economical roof glazing solution incorporating slim sightlines. The glazing bar's strength is provided by an internal stalk (or fin) which is cut away at the top and bottom main fixing positions.
An internal snap-on ornate capping system (PC4) is also available if desired to fully conceal the internal stalk giving the appearance of a feature timber rafter.



When used with high performance double glazing units with warm edge spacer bars and argon gas filling this system can achieve an overall U Value of 1.4W/ m²K to comply with Building Regulation Document L.


Timber rafters (supplied by the builder or joinery sub-contractor) will create an appealing visual effect inside any home and are totally protected from the effects of weathering by our externally clad Rafterline Patent Glazing system.
Due to the pleasing aesthetics of aluminium and timber materials our Rafterline system is the most popular specifiers choice for domestic projects.



When used with double glazing and thermal breaks this system is easily capable of providing an overall U Value of 1.6W/ m²K to comply with Building Regulation Document L.


Our Traditional patent glazing system remains our customers most popular choice for use on unheated spaces such as Railway Stations, glazed canopies and covered ways where thermal properties are not a consideration.
This system has been installed on thousands of projects nationwide and is available with a choice of capping systems to suit your needs.
A truly great glazing system combined with economy and a proven track record. 30,000m² of this glazing system has been installed by us on many major railway stations throughout the UK in recent times.



This system is capable of accommodating solid or multi-wall polycarbonate sheets or double glazed units up to 28mm thick if used on unheated spaces or where compliance with Building Regulations Document L are not a consideration.


Our 'Heritage' Patent Glazing Bar range is truly unique amongst roof glazing systems; there are no alternative products available on the market which can match an original lead covered steel patent glazing bar which originates from the Victorian era. This range has been manufactured by us unaltered for over a century and is the perfect product for listed buildings and for use in the refurbishment of significant and historic buildings. This system is also still very popular for new build projects and should not to be overlooked on today's modern buildings where a unique character look is desired.

 


Although 95% of our turnover is related to projects which we install ourselves we are also able to quote for providing patent glazing metal sections on a supply only basis to other competent glazing companies, joinery contractors and builders.
To offer you the best available lead-in times and keep costs to a minimum we provide a limited service which does not allow for supply of the glazed infills, providing you with design drawings for Architect's approval or carrying out site surveys.

PATENT GLAZING IS NOT A DIY PROJECT!

Patent Glazing should not be installed by tradesmen lacking experience in this field. Attempting to install any roof glazing system without the relevant know-how is likely to lead to a sub-standard installation susceptible to leaks, draughts and reduced service life.
Although our Patent Glazing systems are designed to excel in even the most adverse weather conditions the installation quality is just as important as the overall system design. Our directly employed installation teams are the most qualified to install our systems and if at all possible we would prefer to quote for this service which also includes for providing full design drawings, site surveys (if required) and a 5 year guarantee.

SUPPLY ONLY QUOTATIONS
In order to obtain a quotation from us we will require you to supply us with:

  • Your company name, address and contact telephone number
  • Delivery Address Post Code
  • A schedule of materials or suitable design drawings showing sections through the glazing at the head, eaves and verge positions. All patent glazing projects are bespoke so we therefore require sufficient information from you to enable us to provide you with the correct materials cut to the correct lengths, if possible.

 

THE CORRECT STRENGTH GLAZING BAR TYPE SHOULD NOT BE GUESSED!
All of our patent glazing systems ranges (apart from our non-structural Rafterline system) are offered with glazing bars of different sizes/strengths to achieve moderate to very large unsupported spans. We are able to supply you with the correct glazing bar type from each range providing you first issue us with the necessary information to carry out the structural calculations. The selection of the correct glazing bar is dependant upon many factors. CLICK HERE to view the criteria which are required to calculate the correct glazing bar for your project.

CUTTING GLAZING BARS TO SIZE ON SITE
We strongly suggest that full manufacturing dimensions are supplied to us to prevent the need for on-site cutting of the glazing bars. Some customers do order our aluminium glazing bars over length for on-site cutting with a suitable chop saw but this practice is best avoided if possible. The Rafterline glazing system is most suitable for on site cutting whereas our Heritage lead covered steel glazing bars should never be cut down.

GUARANTEE
On supply only projects we are unable to offer a guarantee for the installation itself as the quality of workmanship cannot be determined by us. The tradesmen responsible for the installation will need to provide their own guarantee to the client. We will of course guarantee the materials we have supplied against failure or poor workmanship.
