The Continuous Hip System is a cost effective, ventilating dry fix solution for mechanically fixing hip tiles. The system is a genuine alternative to a mortar bedded hip with the added advantage of being quicker and requiring less skill to install.
One carton of the Continuous Hip System contains sufficient components to fix 5 metres of hip without the need to leave the roof. The Continuous Hip System also gives a traditional appearance to the hip whilst combining the security and weathertightness of mechanically fixed hip tiles.
Concrete hip tiles with nail holes will be required in a colour to suit, with matching Block End Hip Tiles at the eaves. A 50 x 50 mm, 50 x 38 mm or 50 x 25 mm hip batten must be fixed.
