U Profile

Aluminium U profile fits over the ridge and eaves ends of multiwall polycarbonate.

After cutting multiwall polycarbonate to length and width, air should be blown through the flutes to remove dust and swarf. After this process the flutes should be covered with a blanking tape at the ridge end and with an anti-dust breather tape at the eaves end.

The tapes are then covered and protected with the aluminium U profile on both ridge and eaves. A bead of silicone can be applied at the eaves end to eliminate the possibility of water entering the U profile.

Condensation may form in the flutes of mutiwall polycarbonate, however over time this will fall down the sheet, through the anti-dust breather tape and escape down the drip channel in the U profile.
