Clip On Coping

Optima Clip On Copings

 

Optima Clip-on Copings is a bespoke, secret fix dry jointed coping system.

 

The simply pressed copings are snapped onto the retaining bracket assembly leaving an expansion gap and secure with a stainless steel securing fixing to the back leg providing both attractive and weatherproof protection to parapet and perimeter walls.

Why Choose Optima Clip On Copings?

Alloy Grade Aluminium

Joint-straps and fixing clips are fabricated from robust extruded 6063 T6 alloy grade aluminium.

Double EPDM Gaskets

This extruded aluminium support has a series of grooves into which the double EPDM gaskets are fitted.

Anti-Rattle Device

The EDPM gasket acts as both the weather protector, allowing water to drain off away from the wall stopping any moisture from penetrating to the brickwork, and as an anti-rattle device to baffle noise.

Bespoke Manufacturing

Every project is different and although the coping design concept remains the same, all copings and secret fix supports are manufactured to suit each specific design requirements.

Technical Data

To enable design and fabrications to run smoothly, all technical drawings and purchase data documents can be provided via e-mail reducing the overall fabrication time. Fabricated units including stop-ends, corner units, junction tee-sections and wall abutments shall be welded and dressed smooth in a visible area if required.
