With more products now being installed at roof level, it can be difficult to ensure cables and pipes that lead from them do not compromise the weathertightness of the roof. Items such as solar panels, thermal water heating systems, TV aerials and satellite dishes, all require connection into the building at some point.
Traditionally cables are passed under the nearest roof tile into the roof space. This creates a gap under the tile that could lead to water ingress that could further lead to a rotting wooden roof structure or worse. Alternatively cables are run down the roof and in through the side of the building. This can leave an unsightly mess of tangled cables over the roof.
The Modular Outlet Adaptors have been carefully matched with Redland’s interlocking concrete tiles in order to avoid disrupting the appearance of the roof after installation.
The range includes: a Cable Adaptor which can secure up to eight cables; a Solar Adaptor for larger cables and solar thermal piping; and the Aerial Adaptor for attaching TV aerials and satellite dishes.
These adaptors provide the perfect solution for roofers looking to maintain the weathertightness of a property during a time when an increasing number of products are being installed on roofs.
BMI reveals roofing’s top 20 for the Apprentice of the Year final
Twenty of the country’s best roofing apprentices are gearing up for the two-day final that will see two of them awarded the prestigious title of either pitched or flat roofing BMI Apprentice of the Year 2019. Success in the competition identifies an apprentice as a stand-out individual and as someone with a bright future in the sector. Previous finalists have gone on to win multiple other awards, founded their own businesses or represented the industry and recruited new entrants as Construction Ambassadors with the CITB.
A PIECE OF HOME DELIVERED BY BMI REDLAND CAMBRIAN SLATE FOR PIONEERING HOSPICE
A first in the UK for its innovative use of reconstituted slate in a modern interlocking roofing material, the BMI Redland Cambrian Slate combines great traditional looks with great durability and cost-effectiveness; and so provided an ideal solution for roofing Butterfly House, an important and sensitively-designed £4.8 million hospice in High Wycombe.
