Dry Ridge

RidgeFast is the fast and easy way to install a ventilated dry ridge. The unique system is designed to simply roll out along the ridge and is far quicker than mortar bedding.

Dry Ridge Advantages

It's Universal

Thanks to a unique fixing system RidgeFast can be used with all standard ridges,tiles and slates. The 6-metre roll is easily moulded to the shape of any tile or slate and the grey colour of the side flashing replicates a mortar finish.

It's Ventilated

Provides a minimum ventilated area of 5,000 sq.mm. per linear metre and is suitable for ventilating flat tiles. Specially designed blanking strips allow you to use RidgeFast with ridge and gas vent terminals.

It's Maintenance Free

The dry fixing method offers considerable advantages, not only in the speed of installation, but also in long-term economy and safety. If you would like to read below, it will explain all the advantages you would have on your property.

Like all of our products, the durability of our dry-fix systems has been extensively tested under all climatic conditions, from the UV rays of the blazing sun to sub-zero temperatures. They are also laid on roofs in our purpose built wind tunnel to assess their performance against the UK and Ireland’s most severe storm conditions. This thorough approach has enabled us to achieve Agreement Certification for the majority of our dry fixed systems.
