ALONG THE RIDGE INSTALLATION
THIS ARTICLE DISCUSSES THE INSTALLATION OF ROOF GRIP WALKWAYS WITH THE WALKWAY PANELS BEING LAYED ALONG THE ROOF SHEET RIDGES
When a walkway is required up the slope of a roof that is less than 10 degree the walkway will most likely be running along the line of the roof sheet ridges. It is important to line up the walkway with the roof sheet ridges in order to give the best support.
In this case the walkway fixing brackets will be perpendicular to the roof sheet ridges. These brackets maybe either elevated ( clamp bracket ) or not ( bonded bracket). This will be determined by cost and the approval of the bonded bracket by the roof sheet manufacturer.
The ends of the walkways should not over hang to on either gutters or ridge capping.
Walkways are not fitted on back flashing sections.
