The product is designed simply to seal and fix the top edge of Rapid Flashing directly against the vertical wall of chimney eliminating the need to angle-grind a channel or to remove mortar from existing brickwork. This quick and simple alternative not only saves time and money but requires less flashing material and provides a clean finish to the roof detail.
The Rapid Flashing Strip can be used in conjunction with Redland’s Rapid Flashing and Rapid Flashing Sealant to complete the Rapid Flashing product family and ensure that all flashing applications can now be completed with the lead-free Redland option.
