Cembrit has brought out the Slate Mono Ridge Ventilation, a practical fibre cement product that provides ridge capping for pitched roofing.
In a move which expands the growing portfolio of Cembrit’s roofing accessories, its latest product is specifically designed to provide a high level of ridgeline ventilation.
Colour matched for use with Cembrit fibre cement slates, the range includes start and end caps for a neat finish. The product is lightweight, weighing only four kilograms, allowing for it to be easily transported and carried up to roof level.
At 530mm in length, it is possible to carry two linear metres of ridge at a time.
Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager of Cembrit, says: “Monopitch ridges are regularly requested and we are pleased to offer a ventilated option that allows designers and building owners to comply with roof ventilation standards.
“The slate mono ridge ventilation provides a visually appealing and weathertight roof. With its quick and easy installation, we are confident the product will tick all the boxes for our customers.”
Cembrit Slate Mono Ridge Ventilation is a fibre cement product that complements the smooth, flush look of the fibre cement slates. The ridges are lighter in weight than concrete alternatives, making them easier to install for a roofer working at height.
The ridges do not require any dust suppression equipment, nor any electric power for cutting, ensuring a far easier and quicker fitting process.
They can be dry fixed with readily available colour matched “sela” type screw, whilst installation is not dependent on getting the correct mortar mix, or having to wait for dry weather.
