Installation Instructions

Lay a suitable tiling underlay over the apex of the roof. Fix roofing battens up to the top course of tiling. If ventilation is required into the roof space, then the underlay should be left short of the apex to leave a small gap of between 5mm - 8mm. Adjust the height of the brackets by bending the bracket at the appropriate height.

Using 30mm stainless steel annular ring shanked nails, fix a Batten Support Bracket to the apex of every rafter.  Nail each bracket to the rafters through the holes on each side. Lay a batten between the support brackets and tile the roof as normal.

Roll out the Vent Roll along the entirety of the ridge. Tack the roll at 1m intervals to the ridge batten using staples or felt nails. Provide a minimum overlap of 100mm when joining lengths of Vent Roll. Clean the tiles and ensure they are dust free. Remove the protective tape from the adhesive strip on the underside of the Vent roll. Press the entire length of the adhesive strip on to the tiles so that the corrugated strip molds into the profile of the tiles. Ensure that the Vent Roll is fully sealed along the entire ridge on both sides.

Lay the ridge tiles along the ridge, placing a Ridge Union between each pair of adjacent ridge tiles. Secure the ridge tiles to the ridge batten by screwing the Clamping Plate over the ridge tile and into the ridge batten. After laying all the ridge tiles ensure the finishing ridge tiles are fixed at both ends. If mortar is not being used at the ends of the ridge, cap the ridges off with a block end ridge or ridge end cap.
