Aluminium Capping for Timber Hip Rafters
Choice of colour, length and base gasket
Clean and simple hip protection!
Premium quality, Inner Capping for clean and simple hip connections. The Hip Bar comes as three parts, a mill-finished aluminium Inner Capping, an aluminium powder-coated Hip Outer Capping and cast aluminium End Cap.
The Inner Capping features rubber gaskets and creates a water-tight seal over the glazing when screwed to the rafter. The durable Hip Outer Capping snap-fixes securely over the Inner Capping and extends outwards to offer umbrella protection to jack spars joining the hip. All fixings are concealed and water ingress eliminated. A heavy duty End Cap provides secure and decorative closure to end of bars, while helping to prevent slippage of Hip Outer Capping and glazing material.
Base Gaskets, which sit directly on timber rafters underneath the glazing material, can be supplied to provide a rubber seal under glazing material if required.
