So what is a Dry Ridge System? And what are the benefits?
The Manthorpe Roll-Out Dry Ridge is a mechanically fitted system which securely fixes the ridge tiles onto a roof, protecting them from wind up-lift and rain penetration.
The system provides 5,000mm²/m ventilation to the roof void through the vent roll, the equivalent to a continuous 5mm gap. The major benefit being, that unlike the more traditional Wet Ridge System, this more modern alternative, ensures that your roof can breathe. Combining this system with the new waterproof and breathable roof membranes ensures added longevity to the life-time of your roof.
There is also no need for mortar, so repointing work becomes a thing of the past. This system also makes the job of fixing the ridge quick, easy and clean, as well as making it possible during frosts and other adverse weather conditions.
The system is compatible with most makes of concrete round and angled ridge tiles and most slate, flat concrete and profiled tiles. It can be fitted to the ridge of any duo pitch roof which has a pitch between 15 and 45 degrees.
The system is available in 3 different colours (Black, Dark Brown and Terracotta) and can be used in conjunction with Manthorpe’s Ridge End Caps and both their Linear and Standard Smart Verge systems.
The Manthorpe Roll-Out Dry Ridge System has been independently wind tunnel tested by the BRE. Testing complies with the requirements of BS 6399-2: 1997 Code of practice for wind loads.
Beaumont Bespoke Roofing & Building provide a 10 Year fitting warranty as standard, and Manthorpe provide a 10 Year Manufacturer’s warranty, although the life expectancy of this particular system could be as long as 50 years plus.
