Maintenance free dry verge systems

The dry roof offers specifiers, designers and fixers the following benefits over mortar bedding:

  • Mechanically fixed to resist the highest wind forces likely to occur in the UK
  • Maintenance - free
  • Allows all weather laying and fixing

Outstanding resistance to wind uplift and penetration

The number of storms battering the UK every year is increasing - and with this there's a growing realisation of the unreliability of using mortar to secure vulnerable areas of the roof such as the verge.

The Manthorpe Fast Fit Dry Verge System has been designed to provide an extremely cost effective alternative that avoids all of the long term maintenance problems - and costs - associated with mortar bedding.

Securing tiles to the roof whilst preventing wind uplift and providing exceptional resistance to water penetration, the system is extremely fast and easy to fit.

No special tools - or skills - are required, because the process is mechanical, bad weather isn't a problem - fitting can take place even in wet or frosty conditions, once fitted the system is extremely secure.

Forget about mixing and all of the mess, inconvenience and subsequent problems that come with using mortar.

With the Manthorpe Fast Fit Dry Verge System you have an alternative that saves you time, increases your efficiency and delivers significant benefits to our customers.

The Manthorpe Smartverge Fast Fit Dry Verge System has been independently wind tunnel tested by the BRE. Testing complies with the requirements of BS6339-2 1997 Code of Practice for wind loads.

 

Dry Ridge

RidgeFast is the fast and easy way to install a ventilated dry ridge. The unique system is designed to simply roll out along the ridge and is far quicker than mortar bedding.

It's Universal

Thanks to a unique fixing system RidgeFast can be used with ail standard ridges, tiles and slates. The 6-metre roll is easily moulded to the shape of any tile or slate and the grey colour of the side flashing replicates a mortar finish.

It's Ventilated

Provides a minimum ventilated area of 5,000 sq.mm. per linear metre and is suitable for ventilating flat tiles. Specially designed blanking strips allow you to use RidgeFast with ridge and gas vent terminals.

It's Maintenance Free

The dry fixing method offers considerable advantages, not only in the speed of installation, but also in long-term economy and safety. If you would like to read below, it will explain all the advantages you would have on your property.

Like all of our products, the durability of our dry-fix systems has been extensively tested under all climatic conditions, from the UV rays of the blazing sun to sub-zero temperatures.

This thorough approach has enabled us to achieve Agreement Certification for the majority of our dry fixed systems.
