Cembrit Accessories Have it Covered for Fibre Cement Roofs

Cembrit has a wide range of versatile accessories to complement its market-leading, fibre cement slates. The accessories, which includes ridges, vents and fixings, are easy to install and handle, and are fully compliant with the relevant British Standards BS5534 (mechanical) and BS5520 (ventilation).

 The use of the correct accessories is important from an aesthetic and practical installation point of view, and Cembrit makes the selection process easy as possible, by stocking its complete ‘tried and tested’ range at all of its regional depots.

Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager at Cembrit explains: “Accessories should not be an after-thought, as with the correct choice of products, they can, in fact, enhance the appearance and functionality of a fibre cement roof,” he says. “We have taken the time to assemble a complete range of accessories that are suiable for the huge variety of fibre cement slating projects out there. The range is fully guaranteed and locally available to any roofer on the job, and for the specifier and architect, our new roofing guide is an essential source of technical advice and inspiration.”

Manufactured from the same raw materials and pigments as their fibre cement slates, Cembrit contiuous vent ridges are the perfect complement to a Cembrit fibre cement roof. The products match the slate colour, with no unsightly protrusions or changes of angle, contributing to the sleek effect that can be achieved with Cembrit fibre cement slate roofs. The products are also dry fixed, lightweight and are straightforward and time saving for the roofer to install. Cembrit can also provide a range of unobtrusive In-line slate vents specifically designed to meet the most demanding aesthetic requirements.

Cembrit recently launched a fibre cement slate guide to provide specifiers, craftsmen and trades people with the relevant information for the successful design and installation of pitched roofs. The ‘Guide to Double Lap Slating with Fibre Cement Slates’ also provides advice on the installation of accessories and ventialition.
