Set the standard

As 2018 comes to a close, our latest product feature focuses on Protect Fulmetal Rediroll, a unique and universal ventilated ridge and hip system that has been gaining plenty of interest in the roofing market over the last few months, for its ability to provide uninterrupted air flow to ensure the required 5000mm2/m free area of ventilation needed at the roof’s ridge.

Manufactured completely out of aluminium and with a special hooded ventilation design to prevent water ingress, this means no plastic unions are required, thus ensuring there is no need to raise the ridge when using flat tiles or slates.  Supplied with stainless steel clips to provide a mechanical fix and even ridge tile spacing, this product is designed for quick installation and to prevent light bleed between ridges, screw sleeves are sold as part of the RediRoll pack.
