Hambleside Danelaw: SwiftRidg® – The Isle of Luing

  • 12 Jun 2024

The Danelaw SwiftRidg® Roll Top Ridge and Hip System, a new and innovative GRP product from Hambleside Danelaw, has been BRE tested to resist wind speeds exceeding 110mph. 

This makes it ideal for use on the Isle of Luing, one of the Slate Islands in the Inner Hebrides, in the west of Argyll in Scotland. Its charm lies in its natural beauty and unspoilt peaceful scenery looking out to the Inner Seas. It is very exposed to the elements though and, being coastal and located in BRE’s Wind Zone 4, properties need to be built with robustness and durability in mind. 

Comprising completely of corrosion resistant components and a unique concealed omega shaped fixing bracket to avoid any penetrations through the system, the SwiftRidg® was installed along all the ridge and hip lines in this case study.

Perfect opportunity

An attractive and viable alternative to the traditional lead roll top ridge and hips, SwiftRidg® was installed on two properties along with Samaca Prime Slates on roofs covering an area of approximately 240m2; a perfect opportunity to showcase the neat and clean lines of the system. 

Roofing contractors Kevin Mackie and Kieran Rowan admitted they were sceptical at first, as it is the first complete system of its kind, but with Paul Lambert (Hambleside Danelaw’s Field Technical Support) on hand, in addition to clear installation guidance they were impressed with the speed and ease of installation.

Kevin and Kieran had been contracted by Chris Parr Joinery and Building. Once the roof was complete, Chris Parr stated that ‘it looked great!’

The photos capture the beauty of the location, and the finish of the roof is clean, tidy and unobtrusive. 

The SwiftRidg® is patent pending (Patent Application No. 2308115.1) and comes with a 20-year guarantee. Hambleside Danelaw also manufacture the SwiftRidg®+, which offers a ventilated option for ridge where required.
