Cappings

ICB offers a comprehensive range of standard copings and cappings. In addition to the standard profiles, the company has the ability to provide bespoke profiles or products, which also includes curves.

Copings and cappings are a proven and secure method of protecting parapet and perimeter walls. They offer an attractive, weatherproof and easily installed finish which is mostly maintenance free.

The capping system comes complete with prefabricated standard/special corner sections, stop and abutment ends, in a wide range of widths. Non-standard cappings in various shapes and sizes are also available.

Composition:
Cappings: made of aluminium 1050, 1.5 mm or 2.0 mm thick, 2.5 m long
(3.0 m on request)
Profile Holder ( a Secret Fix System): extruded aluminium

Finishes:
Mill finish (standard), anodised or polyester powder coated (PPC) in a range of attractive colours.

Weather resistance and durability:
Aluminium offers a good corrosion resistance due to the formation of an aluminium oxide layer. In polluted environments PPC coating is recommended. Provided that corrosion is prevented, ICB cappings should last indefinitely

Installation
The top surface of the wall should be level and free of projections. Start at a corner by fixing the prefabricated corner section first, using full and half profile holders as shown in this illustration (for cappings wider than 500mm use three full profile holders). The holders have slotted holes to enable proper alignment. Insert the plastic levelling plate into the profile holders, mark out and drill the top of the wall where the holders are to be fixed (at each joint and at intervals as shown below in 1.21). Position levelling plate so that holders slope toward the roof.

After installation of the first full holder a builder's line should be strung through another full holder fixed at the furthest end. Once all holders are securely fixed, attach the capping by first locating the internal face of the capping on to the underside of the profile holders. Then ease the external face of the capping outwards and push down until the capping clips into place, leaving a 1 - 2 mm gap between sections for thermal expansion.

Where cutting of a profile is required using an electric jig saw, stick masking tape along both sides of the cut to be made to avoid scratching. Saw blades to be suitable for aluminium.

Fixing screws should be of appropriate size and corrosion resistance or made of stainless steel. Avoid direct contact between the aluminium cappings/profile holders and other metals.
