French term or phrase: baguette d’accrochage continue en sous-face
Hi,

This is in the context of roof tiles. Is this a continuous soffit strip/soffit fixing strip?

Tuile robuste, la Périgord dispose d’une baguette d’accrochage continue en sous-face pour faciliter le traitement des points singuliers tant en neuf qu’en restauration.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks - I went for continuous nib in the end though as it seems to cover the meaning and gets a lot of UK hits, e.g.:

neutral  Tony M: Are you sure we call this a 'holding bar' in EN? Doesn't sound very plausible to me.... We have tiles like that in the UK, research needed... On conventional tiles, they are called 'nibs' (where there are 2 lugs instead of a 'bar')

  -> and in FR too, they're called pattes, but this particular design has only (one) "bar", and they choose to call it barrette d'accrochage. With a bit of research, you see that this term is only used by one company. I couldn't find the patent.
