Hip Trays

rcth logoOur Roof Tile Corner Tray has many benefits when used in the restoration process. The Hip Tray is a zincalume diamond shaped tapered metal tray designed to fit under all corner caps. Once the ridge cap & mortar is stripped away the tray is fitted and then the tiles & ridge caps are rebedded & pointed into place.

 

The tray stops the following problems:

  • Prevents ridge caps from slipping by securing into place.
  • Holds corner cuts into place to prevent them from slipping into the gutter.
  • The tray sits over the fascia and allows the water to flow onto the tray – not the timber.
  • Bird proofs the corners by allowing the corner cap edge to be sealed correctly by the pointing finish.
