Clip system
In order to simplify the handling of the clip for roofers, FOS offers a number of stormclips collated on plastic strips. Each strip contains 25 clips and is suitable for the FOS ClipHOLSTER®. The collated clips allow for swift removal from its package. On the roof the use of the ClipHOLSTER accelerates the installation considerably. Because the ClipHOLSTER is fastened to the belt, the clips are within easy reach. The roofer has his hands free and can therefore work more efficiently. Empty magazine strips can be replaced quickly and conveniently.

Clip selection made easy

To ensure that your storm protection complies with the building regulations and the Eurocode, it is essential that the clip fits optimally and holds the tile securely in place. The Product Finder FOS ClipCHECK® and our free professional Wind Uplift Calculation FOS WindCHECK® enable you to find the right product for your application quickly and easily. You just need to enter the roof tile and building specifications and the program will calculate which clips are best suited to your roofing project. In the case of storm clips, the results of the wind uplift calculation also include a dimensioned diagram detailing the level of fixing required for specific roof areas. If you choose to use a storm clip not specified by the software, FOS cannot guarantee regulation-compliant storm protection.
