Glasstrim is a pultruded glass reinforced polyester roof edge trim, designed to provide a weatherproof decorative finish and strong clean line to the roof edge.

The Pultrusion Process

Pultrusion is a continuous moulding process producing straight cut lengths of section. Reinforced fibres are drawn into a resin impregnation zone and then pulled through a heated die. Here the shape of the end product is determined by the configuration of the die and the resin is polymerised. Quality is assured by advanced techniques applied throughout the production process from raw material to finished product - under EN ISO 9002.

The Advantages

GLASSTRIM G.R.P.   has low thermal movement. The high glass fibre content gives a low coefficient of thermal expansion, solving the problem of splitting and leakage at the roof edge.
GLASSTRIM G.R.P.   gives a positive waterproof bond with hot bitumen or asphalt and forms an integral part of the waterproofing system.
GLASSTRIM G.R.P.   is strong and durable, with a strength to weight ratio superior to steel.
GLASSTRIM G.R.P.   requires a minimum of maintenance ensuring a long economic service life.
GLASSTRIM G.R.P.   provides permanent colour and is resistant to corrosion and the extremes of atmospheric pollution.

The Range

GLASSTRIM G.R.P.   Certain sections are available ex-stock in black, white or grey.
GLASSTRIM G.R.P.   Can also be supplied in a full range of colours to your specification. Minimum order requirement and delivery lead time on application.

Fixing Instructions

Method of Fixing
Glasstrim should be fixed by means of Cadmium or Galvanised nails or screws at not more than 300mm (12")centres with the ends of each length firmly secured. A minimum of 8 fixings per length is recommended.

It is recommended that Glasstrim Type 6 is also Face Fixed.
Priming of the fixing leg is recommended.

Built up Felt Roofing
The first layer of felt should be dressed over the kerb and the Glasstrim fixed into position as described. The top layer of felt is laid in a similar manner over the trim and the top edge turned into the hood thus eliminating the outside edge of the top layer of felt lifting.
