Forticrete has welcomed the newest dry fix standard, so much so it is already having its products put through strenuous testing to meet the criteria.

The introduction of BS 8612: Dry-fixed Ridge, Hip and Verge Systems for Slating and Tiling, which came into effect at the end of January, outlines the minimum performance requirements for dry-fix roofing products, guaranteeing they are fit-for-purpose to give confidence products are of the supremest quality.

John Lambert, Managing Director of Forticrete (above photo), says this compliance means products are manufactured to the highest quality and contributes to bettering standards of pitched throughout the industry.

He spoke about the recent growth in the dry fix market resulting in a sharp rise in the number of competing systems on offer and that, previously, there was not an agreed way of judging whether these products were fit for purpose, so therefore, this category of products needed a recognised British Standard

“Contractors, procurement officers and developers will have the standard in mind when it comes product specification so it is important we are able to provide them with high quality products which have been certified as fit for use,” he said.
