At the gable, the mesh shall be carried around under the overhang and fixed, with an additional 20 - 30 cm along the roof line to allow for an overlapping connection with the roof shielding. In case of the roof being prefabricated in a workshop (prefabricated houses), the shielding layer of Cuprotect® shall be placed immediately underneath the rafters using the fell seam technique.
The long sides are prefolded by 4 cm. They shall be unfolded, hanged into each other and fastened together to form a fell seam. The mesh shall be fixed to the rafters using stainless steel staples at a maximum distance of approximately 5 cm.
Furthermore, the instructions for the penetration of the shielding shall be obeyed.
Cuprotect® shall be connected directly to the earth busbar at least once on each side of the building. The cross-section shall comply with DIN VDE (recommends a minimum of 10 mm²). The network type shall correspond to the German TN-S or TT network. The electrician in charge of the works is liable for the earthing.
