FOS head-foot clips

Head-foot clips

Using Head-foot clips for wind uplift security on pitched roofs is particularly recommended, when the roof tiles have no or just a small head-lock.

Head-foot clips hold two roof tiles simultaneously, where the top of the lower tile and the bottom of the overlapping tile being secured. Head-foot clips are either fastened by hammering them into the batten, such as the 403®b and the magazined 403®d-2, or clamped behind the batten, such as the magazined 403®2.

Head-foot clips do not only prevent complete tiles from slipping, but are very helpful to provide additional support for cut pieces at hip. They can be used in a variety of ways as installation aid at connections and terminations.

FOS has developed the 428 for hammering in and the 428b for hooking in especially for hollow tiles.
