  • Data Sheet & Fitting

  • Packs should be stored flat or upright, on a smooth, clean, dry surface and protected from sunlight.

The roof underlay is laid as in normal practice, with the underlay finished and turned approximately 100mm up the abutting walls. Battens should be cut 50mm short of the abutment wall and nailed to the rafter, using clout head nails.

Noggins may be needed to be fixed flush to the top of the rafters to anchor the battens. The soaker is nailed at 500mm centres to the roof battens. At the ridge, the abutment flashing should be mitred and dressed with a Code 4 lead. It is advisable to use double slates/tiles to eliminate the possibility of small sections require fixing.

Where tiles are used, these should be bedded onto mortar which is applied onto the sanded strip running along the length of the product. It may be necessary to break off the nibs of concrete tiles to eliminate a kick-up. Code 4 lead stepped flashing is used to dress over the abutment flashing upstand. It may be necessary to trim the fascia board to allow any water to be discharged into the rainwater gutter. Alternatively, a tilting fillet may be used.
