Dry Ridge System
In traditional roofing applications, the ridges fixed by mortar bring about many problems. In addition to the extra load caused by the mortar system, the mortar loses its bonding feature in time and as a result of this, allows for the penetration of water into the cracks of the roof. With dry ridge system, a modern, aesthetic, healthy, long-lasting and functional ridge lines can be created without using mortar. While applying the dry ridge system, the ridge line should be first determined by pulling rope. Purlin bearing profiles can be adjusted to this line by bending their legs easily and secured to the roof deck at 60-70 cm intervals.
A 3x5-cm ridge purlin is fixed onto the purlin bearing profile. The roll-shaped ridge tape is laid on the top of the ridge purlin. The protective layer of the adhesive tape is removed and it is stuck onto the tile by pressing with hand so that there is no air space in between. Using ridge retainers, the ridge tiles are fixed to the ridge purlin.
