Ranga Grips™ fascia brackets have been made to suit a standard 188mm x 32mm LOSP Fascia material
How to Attach bracket to rafter.
- hold bracket to side of rafter end. Make sure the face of the bracket is flush with the end plumb cut of the rafter and the desired height is established using the measurements provided. (this height is determined by your pitch, purlin height and roof cover material).
- Place one screw in the middle of the top slot making sure the bracket is flush and plumb with rafter end plumb cut. (place screw in the middle of the slot allows for adjustment in height).
- once the desired height has been established place a second screw in either the top of the second slot or in the middle hole provided. (this locks the bracket into place, prevents movement up or down as-well as twisting).
If adjustments in height need to be made while fascia is in place
- With top screw still in place. Place a screw in the middle of the bottom slot.
- Remove middle locking screw.
- Loosen top and bottom screw without removing
- Hold fascia weight and move bracket up or down to desired height
- Tighten screws to rafter. Place another in middle hole if needed.
Method guide for installation of timber fascia using Ranga Grips™ Fascia Brackets
After rafter ends have been cut, attach one bracket at either end of the fascia run using the measurements on the face of the bracket for the desired height above the rafter top edge. (we suggest attaching brackets to the rafter closest to the hip ends or valley).
Attach string line to brackets at either end of the fascia run. ensuring the string line is tight.
(attach the string line to a datum measurement on the brackets as this will be your reference for height for remaining bracket attachments).
once the string line has been set up and is tight with no slack. Proceed to attach intermediate brackets at a minimum 2400mm apart.
(use the string line to guide you as a reference for brackets height. E.g if you string line has been set to 30mm down from top of first two brackets from stage one. All brackets in-between should be place at 30mm down, use the measurements on the bracket face to line up with the string line).
Procced to implement stages 1 – 3 to each run of fascia around the project if you desire.
taking into account more brackets will be required to do this.
(it is wise to level bracket heights around opposite fascia runs. Eg. around Hips and valley corners).
Provided that the fascia boards have been measured and cut, place facias into brackets, moving left and right as needed, starting at opposite runs of hips and or valleys. (the brackets will hold the fascia at the desired levels as set up in stages 1-3).
Once the fascia’s are placed into brackets. Without nailing the fascia’s to the rafters. Fix each hip and or valley corner fascia’s together using desired fixings. (if the fascia’s have been checked for level and straight you can nail hip or valley corners into hip or valley).
Measure in all remaining fascia’s and place into brackets (fix fascia connections using desired fixings between runs, hips or valleys)
At this stage all fascia’s should be joined together around the project. Check all fascia for level and straight, proceed to fix all fascia’s into rafter tails using desired fixings.
Once and fascia’s have been fixed to rafters, hips and valleys using desired fixings you can proceed to remove all brackets and reuse for the next projects
Please note** fascia’s can be fixed to rafters, hips or valleys as you install them or at the end so as to allow you to double check levels and straightness.
Provided that you have set up your brackets correctly at the start from stages 1-3 you should be able to fix fascia’s to rafters, hips or valleys as you install them
- Brackets are designed to hold the weight of the fascia only
- The height of front of the bracket has been designed to allow fascia replacement of and existing projects without having to fully remove roof cover. (this will stop the fascia from rolling out provided it is not pushed or knocked upwards before fixing to rafters, hips or valleys.
- The bracket system will leave behind screw holes (we suggest if you do not wish to have any marks left behind you attached brackets with a clamp that is sufficient to hold the weight of the fascia.
