Side Trim

The side trim chosen should be the same thickness as the glazing sheet i.e. 10mm, 16mm or 25mm.

The aluminium side trim can be used with the rafter gasket systems and also the structural glazing systems except for the 600 system.

Fit the glazing bar base to one end of the structure, then fix the side trim over the glazing bar base to the side of the fascia or building. The glazing sheet sits on the other side of the glazing bar and the bar cap is fitted over the side trim and the glazing sheet and is screwed through its centre into the centre port of the base bar.

At the eaves end (lower part of the roof), we suggest you cut away the side trim by approximately 20mm. This will allow the flat leg of the profile to butt up to the ‘U’ profile end closure later.

If fixing to a side wall, simply turn the side trim profile upside down and fix through the longer leg into the wall and flash over.
