How can I speed up installation of interlocking tiles whilst remaining compliant to BS 5534?
Since BS 5534 was revised in 2014, all interlocking tiles are subject to more stringent fixing specifications, which means there is an element of clipping on all roofs laid in single lap tiles.
Traditionally, these clips and nails come in separate bags and need threading together prior to installation, which is fiddly and adds extra labour time to the job. To save time, you can use the SoloFix one-piece clip and nail. It’s comparable in price to a standard aluminium clip but can save as much as 30% on roof clipping time.
