The C trim is a simulated lead flashing, generally fitted in conjunction with the D trim. The D Trim is a fillet trim for use against abutting walls. It will also provide expansion and is compatible with C2 and C3 universal corners. Place the D trim against the vertical face and push down diagonally into the corner until the trim fits snugly. Where the D trim needs to be joined it should be bonded with a strip trim adhesive, over lapped by 200mm and bandaged together. The C trim is usually fitted into a bed joint of the brickwork or a 35/50mm (depending on the trim type) deep chase cut out with an angle grinder fitted with a mortar chase disc. Apply trim adhesive to the back of the C trim every 300mm. fit the trim into the slot and press firmly back to the wall to overlap the D trim. Apply a clear silicone sealant along the length of the trim into the slot to seal the trim in. a smooth finish can be obtained by wiping the sealing with a moistened finger.
A single batten is fixed level with the top edge of the deck. Apply a continuous strip of trim adhesive to the batten, rub the trim into place and nail through the top of the trim into the decking, Do not nail through the front of the trim. If a ladder is likely to be lent against a B type trim for regular access to the roof, the trim will need to be reinforced to avoid deformation.
The trim can either be doubled up by slotting a section of extra trim with the section where the ladder will be used or it can be reinforced with an extra layer of GRP laminate and then tissue to maintain a smooth finish. Alternatively, a wooden batten can be shaped and fitted into the ridge of the trim to ensure that it remains rigid.
