suitability.
The Dry Bonding Gutters can be retro-fitted either into existing roofs or installed in new roofs.

1.3 STORAGE
The Dry Bonding Gutters can be stored outside above the ground on a flat, clean and level surface.
The profiles should be stacked such that crushing and distortion is avoided and for long or
indeterminate periods of storage outside the Dry Bonding Gutters should be protected with an opaque
weatherproof covering.

2.1 GUIDANCE NOTES
Redland Dry Bonding Gutters are suitable for both traditional cold roof and warm roof construction. They can
be used wherever you want to join two different roof coverings on a pitched roof slope. Typical construction
scenarios include, but are not restricted to, adjoining roofs over fire-break masonry party walls, and also non-
fire-break walls. Typical construction details can be found in Section 2.2.
It is important when constructing bonding gutter details that the roof tiles that abut the bonding gutter lie in an
even and level plane at the same pitch as the roof tiles adjacent. Tiles that kick up where they meet the
bonding gutter should be avoided as this can compromise the weathertightness of the roof covering at these
junctions. The choice of Low or High Profile Dry Bonding Gutter will depend on the roof coverings to be
joined; it is recommended that the Dry Bonding Gutter chosen reflects the deepest profile tile to be joined. It
is also critical that all the tiles that abut the bonding gutter are nailed and/or clipped in accordance with the
Redland fixing specification for the roof in question.

2.2 DRY BONDING GUTTER CONSTRUCTION DETAILING
To ensure that the tiles adjacent to the Redland Dry Bonding Gutter lie in an even and level plane it is
important to follow the construction details in this section. For situations where the Bonding Gutter is
to be used over a fire-break party wall the underlay and tiling battens must be terminated either side
of the mortar-bed fire-stop. When using 25 mm tiling battens the Dry Bonding Gutter is fixed to 6 mm
WBP ply either side of the fire-stop. The thickness of the WBP ply required can be calculated as
follows: WBP ply thickness = (Tiling batten thickness 19mm)

For situations where the Bonding Gutter is to be used over non-fire-break walls the underlay can be
carried through underneath the bonding gutter but again the tiling battens should be terminated either
side of a central 6 mm WBP plyboard, into which the Dry Bonding Gutter is fixed.

When using Redland Cathedral Clay Pantiles ensure on the side of the bonding gutter where the tiles abut
either that the tiles abut uncut, or are cut at least 30 mm from crown of profile. Alternatively the WBP ply
thickness can be increased to 12mm.


2.3 FIXING INSTRUCTIONS
2.3.1 INSTALLATION OF DRY BONDING GUTTER

Establish the position of the Dry Bonding Gutter. Underlay and batten the
roof in accordance with the construction details in Section 2.2. Position Dry
Bonding Gutter onto established line and nail through outer flange into 6
mm WBP ply below at maximum 500 mm centres. When joining lengths of
Dry Bonding Gutter use the minimum overlaps specified in Section 1.1.









Redland Dry Bonding Gutter Installation Instructions 26 April 2013 Page 5 of 8


The slates and tiles should be laid as close as possible to or touching the
central upstand on both sides with care taken to avoid any distortion and
maintain the straight line appearance of the profile. Mark the centre line of
the Dry Bonding Gutter and remove slates or tiles for cutting as required
so as to maintain the correct bond of the slating and tiling. At the ridge a
Rapid Flashing saddle should be dressed over the Dry Bonding Gutter. At
the eaves ensure the Bonding Gutter projects 50mm over the fascia board
to match the overhang of the slating and tiling.



Where the tile nibs interfere with the Dry Bonding Gutter they should be
removed.





Ensure all tiles and cut tiles adjacent to the Dry
Bonding Gutter are mechanically fixed in
accordance with the Redland fixing specification
for the roof. The standard nails and clips can be
used. For half slates and other small cut tiles
either Redland C-clip (9518) (shown adjacent),
and/or Redland Kro-clips (9142) can be used.

Complete the slating and tiling as required.

2.3.2 FINISHING OF DRY BONDING GUTTER AT EAVES

To prevent birds, insects and rodents from entering it is important to close
the cavity at the bottom of the Dry Bonding Gutter. It is recommended that
Redland Kompriband expandable foam (9467) is used to close of the
cavity as shown in the photo adjacent. Peel off the backing off the sticky
side and adhere the Kompriband to the inside bottom of the bonding
gutter.




The Kompriband foam expands to fill the available space closing the cavity
at the bottom of the Dry Bonding Gutter at the eaves.









2.3.2 FINISHING OF DRY BONDING GUTTER AT RIDGE-LINE
There are two different scenarios for finishing of the Dry Bonding Gutter at the ridge depending on
whether you want to break the ridge-line at that point in the roof or not. Reasons for breaking the
ridge-line could include the wish to use a different ridge tile on one side of the bonding gutter,
differences in height between the new roof covering on one side of the bonding gutter and the roof
covering on the adjacent roof slope etc. For our recommended detail on finishing the Dry Bonding
Gutter where the ridge-line is to be broken see next section 2.3.2.1. For the scenario where the ridge
is continuous across the junction see section 2.3. 2.2.

2.3.2.1 BREAKING THE RIDGE-LINE
Extend the Dry Bonding Gutter to the ridge apex and mitre with the
bonding gutter on the other side of the roof. Using the 370 mm wide Rapid
Flashing roll (9957) (or 560 mm wide roll (9959) if required) form a saddle
over the Dry Bonding Gutter upstand, the ridge apex and the roof tiles on
both sides of the roof; this can be carried out using two pieces if required.
Ensure that the saddle is wide enough to cover over one roll and pan of a
profiled interlocking tile and a minimum 150 mm over any flat interlocking
tile. Ensure that the saddle extends down the tile a minimum 150 mm,
increasing to 200mm for low pitched roofs or exposed roofs. Ensure the
Rapid Flashing is stuck down to the roof tiles as per fixing instructions.

At the sides of the Rapid Flashing saddle turn the free edges up to form a
welt to prevent water ingress over the sides.







Complete the ridge tiling up to the junction with the Dry Bonding Gutter
ensuring the ridge tiles are butted tightly up against the upstand of the Dry
Bonding Gutter as closely as possible.









Seal the butt joints between the ridge tiles and the upstand of the Dry
Bonding Gutter junction using Redland Rapid Flashing Sealant (9995).










2.3.2.2 CONTINUOUS RIDGE-LINE

Where the ridge is to be carried through across the junction of the Dry
Bonding Gutter it is first essential to cut and trim the Dry Bonding Gutter at
the ridge apex to allow the ridge tiles to run across the junction. This is
most easily carried out using a pair of snips as shown.

Using the 370 mm wide Rapid Flashing roll (9957) (or 560 mm wide roll
(9959) if required) form a saddle over the Dry Bonding Gutter upstand, the
ridge apex and the roof tiles on both sides of the roof ; this can be carried
out using two pieces if required. Ensure that the saddle is wide enough to
cover over one roll and pan of a profiled interl ocking tile and a minimum
150 mm over any flat interlocking tile and that welts are formed at the
sides as shown. Ensure that the saddle extends down the tile a minimum
150 mm, increasing to 200mm for low pitched roofs or exposed roofs.
Ensure the Rapid Flashing is stuck down to the roof tiles as per fixing
instructions.




Complete the ridge tiling over the junction in continuous fashion as per the
manufacturers fixing instructions using proprietary ridge seals or mortar as
required.
