Fix 38 x 25mm tiling battens to specified gauge for the design of the product and secure to groundwork with recommended fixings. Lay tiles in broken bond fashion and twice nail each tile. Joints may be left dry or can be bedded and pointed in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions.
Where a top course tile is used the minimum coverage of the flashing is 100mm. If no top tile is used coverage should be extended to 150mm. The decorative section of flashing should be added onto the coverage such that it does not compromise the lap relative to the vertical joint and the nail holes.
