Assemble yourself

Since professionals are becoming increasingly scarce and therefore increasingly expensive, it is good to consider assembling your gutter grid, sable scrap and solar scrap yourself. Until recently, it was almost only possible to have an AP77 gutter grille installed by a professional, because there was little information about the installation method. However, since we have thought about this carefully and together have come up with a method to be able to bend the gutter gratings without a professional bending machine, the biggest obstacle for the do-it-yourselfer has been removed for good. With our instructional videos, Aluper® products are now also very easy to assemble yourself. We try to cover as many common situations as possible in our instructional videos so that most questions will be removed and the assembly will be easier.

• Work from left to right, so start on the left side of the gutter. Leave a few mm free from the left edge of the gutter.
• Place the grille in place and click it into place with the stainless steel fastening clips. 
• Adjust the swivel hook to the correct size and use it to keep the height between the surface of the grid and the bottom of the gutter at the same distance. This will ensure that the grid will lie nicely straight over the entire length of the gutter. 
• Screw the grid to the batten. 3 stainless steel chipboard screws per grid are sufficient.
• Have each grid overlap the other grid by at least 2 cm, this may also be 2,5 cm. Screw the grates together with the stainless steel self-tapping screws or chipboard screws.
