A new Dry Verge system has been launched by Marley Eternit, aiming to make it quicker and easier for contractors and housebuilders to fit to NHBC and British Standards.
The new Universal Dry Verge is compatible with large standard, medium format (15” by 9”) and large format interlocking tile types, as well as Marley Eternit’s own Lincoln clay interlocking pantile.
The internal rail system and leading edge hinge for the new Universal Dry Verge makes it compatible with all three main interlocking tile types, something no other dry verge product does. As a result, roofers don’t need to buy and carry different verges and merchants can keep just one verge unit in stock that is compatible with many tiles.
The new system includes a quick starter-verge fixing that can be installed even if the gutter is already in place, providing an easy-to-install, robust method of securing the first verge unit.
Technical product manager from Marley Eternit, Gavin White, explains that Marley Eternit was the first manufacturer to launch an interlocking dry verge system in the 1980s and the company wanted to use its expertise to design a new Universal Dry Verge system that takes the best from the original version, with its renowned aesthetics and quality, and builds on it to make it even easier to fit to BS 5534 and NHBC standards, with the greatest compatibility of anything currently on the market.
Due to being made from polypropylene, the new Universal Dry Verge is very durable and weather resistant. Additionally, it includes drainage features which help correctly channel rain water to prevent gable and staining.
