FIXING BUTTONS CONTENTS
Our range of Polycarbonate Fixing Buttons are designed to help your Polycarbonate Sheets in place, in windy conditions they reduce the chance of sheets being dislodged.
Each pack contains 10 fixing buttons, 10 screw hole covers, and 10 foam compression gaskets. The foam compression gaskets are designed to stop water from getting into the hole where the screw fixes the Polycarbonate Sheet.
They also allow for a small amount of movement of the Polycarbonate Sheet due to a small amount on natural expansion and contraction of the sheets. The compression gaskets also stop uplift due to wind and sheets being dislodged by snow or wind being pulling of cappings.
BASIC INSTALLATION ADVISE:
Use a sharp steel bit instead of a wood one.
Drill at least 40mm away from the edge.
Drill between the ribs.
Do not over tighten the screw fixing and squash the sheets – as a guide the button should not touch the sheet.
Using an 18mm drill bit will allow the sheet to move due to natural expansion and contraction.
Use to fix into purlins, noggins and rafters.
