The Dry Hip System provides a neat and attractive finish to the hip line without the use of mortar. The hip tiles are secured to the appropriate size hip batten, using stainless steel wood screws which give exceptional resistance to wind uplift. The system may be fixed in all weathers and is maintenance-free.
The components that make up the Dry Hip System comply with BS EN 490: 1994 and BS 5534: 2003.
Plain Angle Ridge Tiles are available in three angles in concrete (85°, 120° and 140°).
Colours available are Slate Grey, Terracotta, Tudor Brown and Black.
They can be either mortar bedded only or mortar bedded and
mechanically fixed. When mortar bedding & mechanically fixing, use Clamping Plates and woodscrews, complete with neoprene washers and foam grommets. 6 mm diameter holes should be carefully drilled 30 mm in from each end of each ridge tile
