# ACCESSORIES

All accessories are 2m in length. All FIDDLER™ tiles come with a 30 year limited warranty

# How to calculate the amount of roof tiles and accessories required for your roof project

The FIDDLER™ roof tiles require a minimum roof pitch of 16 degrees

## ROOF TILE CALCULATION

Example

Tile quantity calculation

If your roof square meter area is 100sqm

Each square meter requires 2,2 tiles

Take the roof sqm of 100 X 2,2 tiles = 220 tiles

The Theoretical number of tiles required are 220 tiles

Add a tile cutting loss of 10% to the 220 tiles to allow for cutting loss during installation

10% additional tiles to allow for cutting loss = 22 tiles

The total number of tiles required for a 100sqm  roof is: 220 + 22 = 242 tiles

You can thus order 242 tiles

## ACCESSORY CALCULATION

Example

Angle ridge cap calculation

Measure the total ridge lengths on the roof, eg. 60m

Each ridge cap length is 2 meter long

Take the 60m and devide it by 2m = 30

You will thus theoretically require 30 pieces of Angle ridges

Additional 10% = 3 Angle ridges

Your total number of Angle ridges required is:

30 + 3 = 33 Angle ridges

You can thus order 33 Angle ridges

# Tools required to fit the FIDDLER™ roof tiles

### Do

• Use the diamond disk blade only to cut tiles & accessories
• Use the metal cutting disk to cut threaded rods only
• Apply waterproofing to every tile that has been cut
• Make use of relevant safety equipment
• Use safety harnesses when working at heights
• Work in a safe manner and keep work site clean

### Dont

• Don't use grinders on thatch roofs
• Don't cut the Fiddler tile with a metal cutting disk
• Don't leave the work site dirty after completion
• Don't work without the necessary safety equipment
• Don't use black cross wood to erect roofs
• Don't use unskilled labourers to fit the Fiddler tiles
