It is important to first identify fixing clips and
jointing sleeves. Fixing clips are angled at 100° and jointing sleeves
Coping is supplied in 3000mm lengths with each length
requiring four fixing clips which should be attached with screws,
ideally stainless steel, at 750mm centres. The ends of a run can
be cut to size as required.
A jointing sleeve should be inserted 50mm into the
first length of coping with the waterproofing strips to the top.
The coping is presented to the wall and pressed down firmly to spring
under the bottom edge of fixing clips.
For additional security, the exposed part of the
jointing sleeve can be fastened with screws.
A jointing sleeve is inserted into a second length
of coping and the free end slid into the previously installed jointing
sleeve leaving a suitable expansion gap.
The coping is then pressed into position as with
the first length and fixing clips screwed down.
It is advised to fit corner pieces first and follow
with standard lengths.
This process is repeated until completion.
