Suntuf Standard screws and accessories
Suntuf provide a proprietary Clearfix screw to fix their sheets. These screws are the best way to fix polycarbonate roofing to a pergola as they eliminate the need to pre drill any holes into the sheet before you fix it. Clearfix screws feature a grey plastic widget that sits below the head of the screw and ensures that the screw is not fixed too tightly and creates a watertight seal over the expansion hole that is drilled by the flared feature on the screw itself (this is to ensure that the sheets can safely expand and contract with hot and cold conditions) Clearfix screws are to be installed on the top of corrugations so that they don’t get in the way of flowing water and expose the roof to leaks.
Eave infill strips
Suntuf eave infill strips consist of custom cut foam sections that fit directly on top of the profile of your roof sheets to seal your roofline against water running upwards against the slope of your sheets, as well as the accumulation of dirt and the prevention of pests making your structure their home. Infill strips will stop your roof sheets rattling or making any unwanted noise in windy conditions
Purlin tape or noise reduction tape is used to reduce the noise that polycarbonate roof sheets make when they move on top of the structure that they are screwed onto. Roof sheets are affixed to the purlins on a pergola and when they move with the wind or expand and contract in hot and cold conditions they can creak and make unwanted noise. By using a strip of purlin tape on top of the purlins of your structure before affixing the roof sheets you eliminate this as an issue. Purlin tape is available in 25m rolls.
Back channel and infill
Suntuf back channel and infill strips create a neat finish for your roofing if it sits against the wall of your home. The end of your roof sheets that butt up against the wall are slotted into a back channel with a foam infill to ensure a tight fit and no accumulation of dust or insects. Back channel also stops water from flowing over the back of your roof sheets when there are high winds.
Barge and Ridge capping
Your pergola might also need some metalgoods to finish off its roof effectively and make things watertight. Barge capping covers the end of your roof sheets. You attach it to the end rafter of your pergola to create a waterproof seal as the cap sits over the top of the end corrugation of your roofing. Ridge capping is used on gable pergolas and allows the roof sheets to sit under a cap that prevents water from getting into the structure at the ridge.
