Ridge systems – the smart crown of the roof

Controlled ventilation, optimum weather protection and perfect aesthetics: The ridge system of a roof must be reliable in every respect, because it terminates the roof at the top. CREATON ridge systems fulfil all of these requirements. They are available in different designs for clay tile roofs and roofs with concrete roof tiles. The CREATON original accessory parts are impressive due to their technical precision, easy installation and proven fastening systems that provide reliable protection, even in freak weather conditions.

The ridge – the most exposed part of any roof – deserves uncompromising protection and immaculate aesthetics. With the original CREATON ridge system, every roof becomes a unit that meets the highest quality standards.

Hip roofs are among the oldest roof shapes and, in contrast to gable roofs, also have sloping roof areas at the gables. This form emphasises the roof’s special protective function for a house. With a hip roof design, the ridge ends in two ribs that are interconnected by a hip cap.
CREATON FIRSTFIX System

FIRSTFIX - The "click parquet" among the ridge systems

CREATON FIRSTFIX System
A full ceramic ridge closure with ridge tiles and clay ridge connection ventilating tiles enhance any CREATON tile roof. The FIRSTFIX system, consisting of the ridge clip, ridge clip wire and clip kit in high-quality stainless steel perfects this full ceramic roof closure. The stainless steel clips and wire in the FIRSTFIX system enable economical installation without tools. The ridge clip has slit-claw technology that anchors the ridge clip wire in the guide slot, making a secure, economical installation possible. The S-shaped, curved ridge clip is attached to the ridge tile, so this clip does not need to be held when fastening the ridge tile, leaving both hands free which enhances safety.
The ceramic, functional starter and termination plates provide a neat and tidy termination at the start and end of the ridge and are also fastened with screws. This allows the ridge to be installed perfectly in the shortest time.
