The Whitesales Dry-Fix Ridge System helps roofers complete ridge tile installation faster and more safely – whatever the weather. It was developed in response to the revised code of practice for slating and tiling pitched roofs - BS 5534:2014.
It’s a mechanical fix which is guaranteed to meet NHBC guidelines and the approval of buildings insurance requirements. A pure mortar fix is less reliable, can create safety issues for roofing contractors and home owners, and is more likely to need call-backs and repairs. Many insurers are now refusing to insure roofs with mortared ridge systems, and clients are making a dry-fix ridge a condition of contract.
Each kit contains easy-fix brackets to support the ridge batten, a 6-metre length of ventilation roll to lay over the ridge batten, and joint unions and clips to join the ridge tiles. No special tools or training are needed to complete a perfect ridge.
