Gridtite is a lightweight spacer bar and bracket system that is designed to provide a controlled space between the inner and outer metal sheets that make up “twin skin” site assembled roofing and walling systems. Insulation goes into this space - usually a fibreglass or mineral wool quilt.
The spacer must be easy to install, strong and stable when sheeted over; be durable, and easy to repair. It must be easy for self-drilling fasteners to drill into, and offer good fastener grip.
In order to comply with the building regulations, Gridtite must limit cold bridging and be able to create a void deep enough to accommodate the required insulation thickness.
