a small tapered/sloped roof area structure that helps to channel surface water to drains. Frequently located in valley. A saddle is often constructed like a small hip roof or pyramid with a diamond-shaped base. (See Cricket.)
(1) A type of flashing usually used in conjunction with step, counter, and apron flashings on steep slope roof systems. (2) A small, somewhat pyramid-shaped figure constructed in between sump drains that is used to direct run-off water toward the sump drains.
(1) A small structure that helps channel surface water to drains, frequently located in a valley, and often constructed like a small hip roof or like a pyramid with a diamond shape base; (2) A relatively small, raised substrate or structure constructed to channel or direct surface water to drains or off the roof. A saddle may be located between drains or in a valley, and is often constructed like a small hip roof or like a pyramid with a diamond shaped base. See CRICKET.
lowest point of elevation between two peaks. A col more often refers to a low point between two lesser points, for example, a low point in a ridge. Saddles and cols are common waypoints in routes because routes often follow the low ground.
On electric guitars, small, movable bridge parts called saddles support each string, setting its height, spacing from adjacent strings, and how well it stays in tune with the others. On acoustic guitars, there's usually one saddle for all of the strings, made of bone or a hard synthetic material, that's shaped to set the strings' heights, spacing, and tuning accuracy.
a strip of bone, metal, or synthetic material that fits into a slot on the bridge and acts both as a spacing guide for the strings, and, together with the bridge, as a conductor of the vibrations or energy from the strings into the soundboard.
Landform. A low point on a ridge; a pass. Saddles on a ridgeline generally are broad with gently sloping sides, like a saddle on a horse. This is in contrast to a steep sided â€œnotchâ€ on a ridgeline.
A style of binding with typically 2 metal stitches (like staples). The name is derived from the equipment that makes it- all pages lay over a piece of metal (like a saddle on a horse). In this style binding the signatures are not next to each other as complete signatures, but rather as open signatures. (For example, pages 1-8 and 17-32 would be the outside signature in a 32 page saddle stitched book.) [Back
Method of attaching or stacking individual sections of a stained glass window. The open end of an H channel fits over the closed end of another channel. This line would then be attached to a stress rod or bar.
A fitted plate held in place by clamps, straps, heat fusion, or welding over a hole punched or drilled in a gas main to which a branch line or service line connection is made. The saddle also may serve as a reinforcing member for repair.
A type of surface that is neither a peak nor a valley but still has a 0 gradient. Saddle points are situated such that moving in one direction takes one uphill, while moving in another direction would be downhill. Hence, saddles look like the things that cowboys ride on.
