What techniques will simplify the installation of polycarbonate in the connecting profile

Polymer material - polycarbonate, which may have a honeycomb or monolithic structure, is widely used in the construction industry. With its help, durable and lightweight roofs, greenhouses, decorative glazing and so on are created. In order for the construction to turn out reliable and durable, you need to follow certain rules that allow you to connect sheets of material among themselves.

/

Most often, a special profile is used for this, which can be:

  • Detachable;
  • One-piece;
  • Linear;
  • Corner
  • Tortsev.

To attach fragments to it, you need to use a screwdriver and an electric drill, which allows you to get holes without chips in the surface of polycarbonate.

Small tricks will significantly simplify the installation of polycarbonate and extend its service life. Following the rules does not imply experience or specific skills.

Installation of polycarbonate in one-piece profile

This connecting profile is distinguished by the presence of grooves located on the sides. It is in them that it is necessary to install polycarbonate sheets. In this case, the central channel, which is formed between the two jumpers, must be used to fasten the material to the main frame. Thanks to such actions, it is possible to significantly increase the strength of the structure and prevent its damage due to thermal expansion.

/

Fasteners with this installation method must be installed strictly at an angle of 90 degrees. It is important to remember that the screws should go into the main frame to a depth of at least 5 mm. Otherwise, the structure may be damaged by gusts of wind.

Installation in split profile

This installation method allows you to get arched structures, therefore it is often used in the construction process of greenhouses, original arbors and terraces. The main trick is that the polycarbonate sheets must be mounted so that their edges, lying on the bottom parts of the profile element, gave the master the opportunity to leave a gap of 2-3 mm to the wall located in the vertical position.

/

When using a profile for joining polycarbonate sheets, it is important to remember that it will not make it possible to create a perfectly smooth integral surface, protruding above it. Therefore, if it is necessary to make the translucent structure monolithic, you need to use the technique of gluing fragments of material.
