Greenhouse bar capping

Elite greenhouse Bar Capping provides a stronger hold for the glazing, and also adds a decorative finish to any greenhouse.

The rubber fin also adds a better water seal between the frame and the glass.

Capping is used in addition to spring clips so in effect will add double protection which is ideal in more exposed areas. The capping is simply tapped into position where the unique serrated peg engages with the aluminium bar, which as you can see, does not leave any unsightly screw heads showing like some other makes.

Please Note: This option is NOT available with Horticultural Glass.

Originally intended to create an individual and yet professional decorative finish to your greenhouse, it has been noted by many a grower that they can now double up as a deterrent against cats and birds gaining access to the greenhouse roof
