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 Continuous Hip contains sufficient components to fix 5 metres of hip without the need to leave the roof. Continuous Hip 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 along with Block End Hip Tiles or Hip End Caps at the eaves. A 50 x 50 mm, 50 x 38 mm or 50 x 25 mm hip batten must be fixed.
