Continuous Hip System

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.


  • Hips are up to a third quicker to complete than when mortar bedded
  • Hip Tiles are secured to the appropriate size hip batten using Stainless Steel woodscrews, which give exceptional resistance to wind uplift
  • Provides a neat and attractive finish to the hip line
  • Easy to install and can be used even when bad weather is expected
  • Ventilates the batten cavity to comply with BS 5250:2011, therefore reducing the risk of harmful condensation in the roof (when used with Spirtech 400 2S vapour permeable underlay)
  • Tried and tested and complies with BS 5534:2014 requirements for mechanical fixing

General Information



Redland Mini Stonewold is the perfect solution against high winds in Orkney

With prevalent high winds in excess of 130mph on the Orkney Islands, a solution was required that could withstand these elements when it came to roofing a new facility for elderly and vulnerable members of the community. The BMI Redland Mini Stonewold Slate was chosen due to its strength, robustness and appearance of natural slate.

A new faster, safer, stronger and lighter metal tile solution from BMI

Drawing on its extensive experience in lightweight metal tiles,BMI – is setting new standards with the introduction of AeroDek. A roofing solution built for the future, AeroDek is faster, safer, stronger and lighter than traditional roof coverings; while replicating the high aesthetic of clay, concrete or slate in a tile guaranteed to last for 40 years.
