Mounting Instructions MOOSfree®

Mounting Instructions

Butyl adhesive tape ensures reliable bonding of MOOSfree® on the roof covering. Only a dry, dust- and dirt-free surface is needed. The higher the processing temperature, the higher the tack. The outside temperature has to be at least 5 °C.

Remove Protection Foil:

Remove both release-papers of the butyl tape incorporated into the bottom copper layer to about 40 to 50 cm.

Stick MOOSfree®:

Align either MOOSfree® 115 or 170, starting at the verge of the roof tile and press on with your hand. Remember never to place the tape under too much tension, otherwise the adhesive area will be reduced.

Roll over MOOSfree®:

Roll over the tape with a wallpaper roller made of hard plastic or metal and press the butyl adhesive tape on the roof tiles.

Attach Completion Tape:

MOOSfree® may be shortened with scissors. To cover joints and ends, install a strip of Completion Tape. For this purpose, remove the seperating foil of the butyl side, position the strip and press it down firmly by hand.

Mount MOOSfree® 30:

For a "perfect solution" MOOSfree® 30 may be installed additionally on the ridge or below windows using the procedure mentioned above. The installation sketch gives you further advice.

Finish Installation:

Check again, if every end or joint of the Moss Removal Tape is covered with a strip of Completion Tape. Thereby MOOSfree® will be optimally protected from sliding snow.

Lightning Protection:

If the roof has a lightning protection system, the entire copper strip must be connected to the lightning protection rod. Special adapters made of copper, which are available as an accessory, have to be screwed every 2 m over the entire length. This procedure is not necessary for MOOSfree® 30 that has been mounted on the ridge.
