Spanquip Mid-Span Supports
New Zealand Patent No. 592982

New Zealand Design Registration No. 414922

Spanquip mid-span supports are a patented product designed and manufactured in New Zealand by Roofquip. It is an innovative product that we developed specifically for roofing profiles commonly found in NZ.


Our mid-span supports are faster, easier, and more economical than other options on the market.


This is because other mid-span support bars need to be customised for each application. Significant issues can result as they are complex, time-consuming, and costly to manufacture and customise, whether that is in the factory or on-site.

Plus, if the manufactured bar doesn’t then fit properly, it can cause damage to the roof as well as taking longer to fit. Even if they do fit, the sharp edges of standard mid-span supports can also cause damage, particularly to polycarbonate and fibreglass sheeting.

Innovative Design, Reliable Performance

Spanquip’s revolutionary design features two plastic brackets that you then fit to a metal connector bar that is cut to length according to the effective cover of your translucent roofing material.

To install, you simply fit the support bar into the brackets at each end and then fix to the roof.

There are four types of Spanquip brackets available for our mid-span supports. This means we have a solution to fit the most common types of roofing profiles used in NZ. Just select the option you need from the list depending on the roofing profile of your roof:

The ordering process includes:

  • Choose a metal roofing profile to get the right bracket
  • Specify the effective cover based on the translucent roofing material on your roof
  • Select how many support bars you need

15 Year Warranty

The plastic used in each bracket is guaranteed to retain its strength qualities for a minimum of 15 years in direct sunlight.
