How to effectively fix M&E services to flat and pitched roofs

Installing M&E systems on flat roofs is challenging enough, but what if the roof or surface you are fixing to has a pitch or slope? It’s important that services are installed level to ensure safe and proper functioning of the equipment.

This presents challenges for fixing the M&E services using standard rooftop support feet as the majority are designed to sit on a flat surface. The most common solution offered is that of a rubber wedge to place under the support foot, which is fine if the pitch of the roof slope matches the pitch of the wedge, but is otherwise a quite inflexible solution!

Walraven Yeti® 480 – The all-in-one, fully adjustable solution

That’s why Walraven developed the Walraven Yeti® 480 foot, to deliver an all-in-one solution with easy adjustment and plenty of added benefits. With no additional parts required, simply tilt the adjustable mid-section to the required pitch between 0° and 7° and lock into place. This makes it fast, accurate and incredibly easy to install.

Additional benefits of the Walraven Yeti® 480

As well as being fully adjustable for pitched roofs, Walraven Yeti® feet have many additional benefits making them a great solution for modern-day rooftop installations. It was recently specified on the new Everton Stadium build due to its many benefits including:
