The innovative Batten End Clip has been designed to make it easier for roofers to install dry verges in accordance with the new British Standard.
The new clip has been developed specifically to meet new dry verge fixing requirements outlined in BS 8612: Dry-fixed Ridge, Hip and Verge Systems for Slating and Tiling, which comes into force at the end of January. As well as introducing minimum performance criteria, the new British Standard states that dry verge products can no longer be installed just with a nail straight into the end grain of the batten. Instead, they must be clipped or screwed into place.
This new c-shaped clip is a quick and easy way of complying with BS 8612, providing a strong fix into the centre of the batten. The clip is designed to fit securely onto the end of the batten, with a robust metal plate for the dry verge to be fixed into, keeping the nail locked into place.
