Reasons to use purlin tapes
Closed cell polyethelene (PE) foam tape, with self-adhesive backing, are fitted to wooden or steel purlins to prevent noise (squeaking) caused by expansion and contraction of polycarbonate sheets during temperature variations. These tapes are used either when polycarbonate sheeting is installed between metal sheets (to allow light to penetrate to the space below), or when the entire roof uses polycarbonate roofing. Purlin tapes are normally installed along the full width of the purlin prior to placing the polycarbonate on the roof structure.
