Forticrete innovation added to LABC Registered Details list

  • 31 Jul 2018

Forticrete’s innovative low pitch roof window system has been added to the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Registered Details list.

The system has been specifically developed to allow roof windows to be installed at pitches as low as 10°; considerably lower than many other systems, when used with its Centurion roof tile.

This maximises the distance properties can be extended with the benefit of natural daylight.

Designed primarily for single storey extensions, the revolutionary system features a patented two-piece tray drainage flow system, which stops water pooling and leaking by collecting water running under the tiles, dispersing it and controlling its flow into the guttering with no overshoot.

Inclusion on the LABC’s Registered Details list showcases Forticrete’s compliance with building regulations and standards throughout England, Wales and Scotland, so local authority housing contractors have assurance of its performance and suitability.

Rachel Appleyard, Roofing Product Manager at Forticrete, commented: “We have invested a significant amount of time and resources to identify the problems associated with low pitched roof windows.

“The benefit of our innovative system is that it allows water to run where it wants to naturally overcoming the issue of water leakage.

“We have complete confidence in the system which is why it comes with a ten-year guarantee.

“Being added to the LABC Registered Details list provides contractors working with local authorities with additional reassurance that it meets the required standards, giving everybody in the supply chain the confidence to design, build and retrofit low pitch roof windows down to as low as 10 degrees.”
