„Storm protection on steep roofs“
Storm Clips, Household Technology
The issue of storm protection is becoming ever more important. Storms capable of lifting the roofs off buildings and leaving them exposed to heavy rain that soaks them and makes them uninhabitable are becoming increasingly common. However, even lower wind speeds can loosen inadequately or incorrectly secured tiles. The entire roof structure may then be damaged as a result. Falling roof tiles also represent a source of danger. That is why the use of tested storm clips is required for new roof coverings. The metal clips fix the tiles to the roof battens in order to securely protect the tiles against coming loose in strong winds.
Many variants and variable clip lengths
The storm clips are manufactured on a GRM 80P stamping and bending machine. The input material comes in strip (18-20 x 0.8-1 mm) and wire (0.9-2.5 mm) form. This is stamped, bended, assembled and loaded into magazines as required for the clip type in question. At a speed of 150 to 200 strokes per minute, it is possible to manufacture between 200 and 300 parts per minute, in some cases with two parts leaving the machine on each stroke. The system covers the entire range of variants and permits variable clip lengths. As a result, the GRM 80P not only offers outstanding performance but also provides maximum versatility during production.
