Fitting ALUKAP-XR Ridge

  4. Drill pilot holes through Ridge Base (100mm from either end and every 300mm)
  5. Screw down Ridge Base to create a uniform seal on glazing material - be careful not to over-tightening
  6. Slide the Gable End Plate or Radius End into the Ridge Base and screw
  7. Use sealant to make additional seals as required
  8. Cut Top Capping to required length
  9. If fitting Cresting and Finial then apply a bead of sealant down the cresting channel before sliding them in
  10. Offer the Top Capping up to check length before snap-fixing in place* as the Top Capping is designed to be difficult to remove once fitted.
