There are then two basic fitting methods: the roll baton or standing seam methods. When using the roll baton method, batons are securely fixed to the deck, forming the bays which are a characteristic feature of these roofs. The copper bays are formed to the exact specifications of your roof, and fixed into the prepared bays. Cappings and trims are welted on to provide a watertight seal at all the joins.
Using the standing seam method, the copper is secured to the roof by the means of stainless steel clips, fitted between the upstands of the bays, which are then welted together.
