Alukap®-XR Hip Bars are designed to work in conjunction with the standard Alukap®-XR 45mm and 60mm glazing bars. The Alukap®-XR Hip bar is designed with a full aluminium snap cover, meaning that perfect leak-proof abutments can be made from Jack Rafter Caps to the face of the upright of the Alukap®-XR Hip Bar unencumbered, and then the aluminium cover cap is simply snapped on afterwards providing an umbrella affect as a double protection. This makes glazing Hip Bar connections faster and more secure. The Patent Pending Alukap®-XR Valley System is designed to work as either going on top of the valley rafter, or being recessed in to the valley rafter so it can be completely concealed from the underside in a hardwood valley situation. The valley has a double reservoir, high-flow water capacity, combined with a double cradle seal gasket system, so that it copes with even the largest of roofs and challenging weather conditions. The Alukap®-XR Valley works with variable glazing angles from five to forty five degrees and can accept glazing of any common thickness. The Alukap®-XR system is manufactured in White RAL 9010 and Brown RAL 8040 ready for immediate despatch. Any other RAL or BS colour can also be manufactured to order, to suit any specific chosen colour scheme.
