The Top Hat Cleats are available in two sizes of 50 and 75 mm wide.
Knauf’s range of Top Hat Cleats enable the easy fixing of top hats to various substrates. The cleats are commonly used to fix top hats to stud framing in external walls but they can also be used to fix top hats to masonry walls or for ceilings under concrete slabs.
When you install Knauf products as a complete system in accordance with our recommendations you have the ultimate peace of mind knowing that the system is covered under our unique Knauf Warranty, which does not only cover the individual products but the system as a whole for a period of ten years.
It is common to use two rows of top-hats (horizontal then vertical) under the cladding for external walls, but the top hat cleats can remove the need for the first layer of horizontal top hats.
When using Top Hat Cleats over stud framing, additional studs may need to be used to provide fixing points for the cleats.
The Top Hat Cleats are also ideally suited to curved walls where curving the row of horizontal top hats is not possible.
