Timloc launches new dry fix roofline and above solutions
Timloc, one of the UK’s leading building products manufacturers, has extended its roofline and above product range with four new universal dry fix roof systems for new build and refurbishment projects.
Timloc’s latest launches, available from May 3rd, include a new Dry Fix Verge system for profiled roof tiles and a Dry Fix Continuous Verge solution for slate and flat tiles, as well as convenient 6m Dry Fix Ventilated Ridge and Hip installation packs.
Not only has Timloc designed and manufactured dry fix systems that perform to the highest standards, but they’ve also identified and incorporated some great features to deliver fast, straightforward and reliable installations. These include extended fixing locators, allowance of guttering and a simple, fast eaves closer starter process. This is all without comprising on Timloc’s commitment to deliver value for money products and solutions.
Timloc’s Commercial Director Dave Bean said:
“To meet the expectations of installers, contractors and our merchant and distributor partners, we’ve extended the highly trusted Timloc brand into the dry fix roofing market.
“We previewed our new dry fix systems at the recent RCI Show in Coventry and we were delighted with the positive reaction we received from installers, merchants, specifiers and even competitors in terms of the new product’s aesthetics, quality and features.”
Timloc’s dry fix systems involve the mechanical fixing of roof verge, ridge and hip tiles without the traditional use of wet mortar bedding alone, which is often unreliable as it deteriorates over time and can be adversely affected by rain and wind. The British Standard for Slating and Tiling, BS 5534 stipulates that the use of mortar bedding alone is no longer sufficient as the only method of fixing roof tiles.
Dry fix roofing systems also present many other benefits over mortar bedding alone including, faster, safer and cleaner installations that are generally unaffected by building settlement. They present consistently smart and virtually maintenance free finishes and can be fitted in wet and cold weather conditions.
All the new Timloc dry fix products offer universal design appeal and project flexibility as they are compatible with the majority of today’s roof, ridge and hip tiles and slates and are suitable for most roof pitch types from 15-55 degrees.
