Aluminium Structural Capping

Winterlite now has the added flexibility of a new aluminium structural frame. The new frame is still used as trim for Winterlite, but more importantly it is also being used, and is designed for structural integrity. This channel is available in 3.25m lengths to provide for a mitred edge and if desired there will be a 6.5m option for applications involving more than one sheet.

The Design
The extrusion is essentially a “U” channel which now creates a snug fit around the Winterline and does not exceed the aesthetics of the product. It also provides for a connecting piece whether it be a flat stake or 90 degree angle that allows for a smooth finish.

Fixing Details
It is proposed that the Winterline sheets are fixed to the new extruded rail using an aluminium pop rivet, with a diameter and grip range no less than 4.8-6.4 at approximate spacings of 200mm.

It is possible to secure the frame through the side of the channel, which forms the frame with a self tapping screw or dyna bolt, depending in the surface material the frame is being fastened to.
