To save fitting time and guarantee that the correct amount of fixings are used, we ensure that every single roof leaves our factory with all the required holes pre-drilled into its eaves beam. For the installer, this means there is no additional measuring or drilling necessary on site prior to fastening the eaves beam onto the roof upstand.
Installing the glass couldn’t be simpler using our all in one glazing retainer. The innovative design prevents slip and covers both the end of the sealed unit and the external portion of the eaves beam in one. Once located into the retainer, the glazing panel is simply positioned on the ridge and rotated down as the assembly guides it into position, reducing the install time to a matter of seconds per unit.
The clever design creates an anti-lift mechanism to both stop ambient air escaping and adds another dimension to security against forced entry from the outside.
Rafter fitment is completed by orientating the end of the spa over its relevant die cast lug and fixing in place using a single 8mm bolt. At the eaves beam end, one more 8mm bolt is fitted from the outside, through the profile and then into a pre-fitted aluminium lug sitting neatly inside the end of the rafter. The utilisation of our tapered washer system ensures that when the bolts are torqued, correct alignment and preload is achieved every time. This saves the installer a great deal of time compared to the more common methods used in some competitor systems.
The roof installation is completed with our clip-in aluminium finishing caps, which, in keeping with the brief have been designed so fitment is intuitive, quick and straight forward whilst ensuring the smooth lines of the roof are maintained. Each of the high-quality cast aluminium cappings which cover the spa tops, boss tops and the rafter ends simply click or push into position where they are retained firmly by a suitable clip.
The design not only adds to the sleek aesthetics by completely covering any unsightly screws, but also further reduces fitting time whist maximising security for the client.
A 5mm Allen key bit is included with every Korniche roof and provides the interface needed between your tools and the fasteners that make up our system.
To allow for a faster and precise fixing between all the spas, bosses and eaves beams we have engineered a simple yet innovative tapered washer. The conical profile results in a wedge type insert which allows a large degree of positional tolerance on the mating holes of the cast lugs and spas. This system vastly simplifies the preliminary fit up helping to increase the overall ease and speed of installation.
Once everything is correctly in place, the connecting bolts are fully tightened and these tapered washers ensure that each joint is both fully aligned and correctly pre-loaded in a single process, providing an incredibly accurate and stable assembly.
Once the eaves beam has been fitted and secured into its position on the existing roof, the installer need not concern themselves further with any application of sealant during construction of the Korniche. All further seals are pre-fitted as required, no fuss, no mess, no additional materials required and most importantly no wasted time.
