Wunderlich Bricksheeting and Rock-face panels are manufactured from galvanised steel, are fire resisting, weather and white ant proof, and cannot crack or warp. They are light in weight; and as they nest closely when packed, can be transported easily and cheaply. Any tradesman can fix them and when decorated they are indistinguishable from the material they represent.

Bricksheeting No. 1046 is made to work in with Quoins No. 1147 and Rockface panels No. 989. Three courses of the Brick pattern coincide in height with a Rockface panel or Quoin Block.

Wunderlich Exterior Sheetings, Roughcast Shingle Brick and Fish-scale are manufactured in heavy gauge Galvanised Steel. They are inexpensive in initial cost, light in weight, economical to transport, and can be erected by inexperienced labour. Their application covers a wide field.

Roughcast and Brick Sheeting both demonstrate the utility of metal as a lining for the exterior of wood - frame buildings. Shingle and Fish - scale patterns also form an effective wall covering but their principal use is as a Roofing to small Turrets, Attics, etc.

Other applications of Galvanised Exterior Sheetings include the decorations of gables, treatments under Bay Windows and the lining of balcony fronts.

All the Patterns shown are stamped in Sheets 6ft. x 3ft„ whilst in addition, Patterns Nos. 189 and 1045 are available in 6ft. x 2ft. sheets.

Window Hoods of stock design that are available for immediate delivery are illustrated below.

These Window Hoods are always forwarded in parts and are assembled on the job by means of bolts and nuts which we provide. Bolt holes are punched in brackets and sheeting before despatch.

Wunderlich “ Hurricane ” Skylights are strongly constructed of galvanised steel, are light in weight, thoroughly weatherproof, and easy to fix and glaze.

The glass is held in position by strong metal clips.

Wunderlich “ Hurricane ” Skylights are supplied in the following stock sizes, the measurements given being “ glass sizes ” :—

No. 5 Glazing Bar is of sturdy construction, and is available in lengths up to 20ft., but the maximum safe span without intermediate support underneath, is about 6ft. The Bar comprises a painted mild steel tee section with zinc top and under capping. The capping is designed to counteract expansion and contraction caused by extremes of heat and cold, also vibration, consequently the risk of broken glass is reduced to a minimum.

Copper cappings are available, at additional cost.

The Glazing Bars are secured to ridge and wall plate by means of screws through the flanges of the tee iron. The glass is held in position by a footplate attached to the bottom end of each Bar. No. 5 Bar can be either “ unstepped ” (to suit a single sheet of glass) or “ stepped ” (for overlapping sheets of glass).

It is necessary that clients should state the exact length of Glazing Bar required, and at what distances, from top and bottom of the bars, screw holes for fixing are to be drilled.

Wunderlich Glazing Bars are ideal for Roof Lights, Glass - houses, Studios, Sawtooth roofs, and in fact wherever the object in view is an abundance of roof light.

Wunderlich Glazing Bars form a weather-proof area for all time as their design and construction obviate the use of perishable caulking mediums, putty, etc.

Glazing Bars are on exhibit in all Wunderlich Showrooms.

Recent innovations in the design of Metal Lettering for Advertising and Display are shown in the representative examples illustrated on the left. These Modern Letters are produced in metal by various methods. They may be built up or cut out of the solid, or cast or stamped. Metals of every description can be used ranging from galvanised steel or zinc—which are the least expensive — to copper, bronze, brass and nickel silver. Even more effective is the modern metal “ stainless steel,” which retains its high polish permanently.

Beautiful colour effects are obtained by polishing, lacquering, oxidising, etc., and the selection of any particular metal depends on the class of finish desired. These letters are available in virtually any design and size.
