Fitting the EasyRidge Dry Fix Ridge Kit to a hip is made easy with the Hip Accessort Kit. The following pointers illustrates just how easy.
- Build-up hip to a height that allows the centre of tray to rest on hip batten and the tiles on either side. Elevated hip batten may be secured with mechanical fixings and/or batten straps.
- Ensure small tile cuts, that cannot be mechanically fixed at the hip in the normal way, are secured using the short or long hip clips supplies.
- Once built-up hip is complete and small tile custs are secured, ensure tiles are dry and free from dust or other surface contamination.
- Lay the ridge roll centrally along the hip batten and secure with staple or suitable nails.
- Remove protective backing from the Butyl strips and dress over the tile to produce a continuous surface contact.
- The Hip Trays are then fitted to support the hip tiles, keeping them straight and level when screw-fixing to the hip.
- Trays should be secured with a single corrosion resistant clout nail and overlapped by 50mm along the hip when necessary. Trays can be cut as required at the eaves and mitred at the ridge.
- Once the hip support trays are in place, hip tiles can be fitted in the same manner as Ridge Tiles.
