As with other Redland products, the dry verge systems have been designed to assist contractors. This verge is quick to install and can be adapted on site to fit either the left or right hand side where typically two separate units would be required.
With new dry-fixing requirements in effect, the new verge system provides a mortar-free solution designed to be mechanically fixed and is therefore considered a secondary fixing required under BS 5534. Quicker to install than a mortar verge, it can also be installed in any weather condition and eliminates the need for an undercloak.
Available in the full range of colours to match the corresponding tile, the dry verges are specifically designed to fit the 15x9 tile range. Colours include: Grey, Terracotta, Brown and Red in the Ambi-Dry Verge and Slate Grey and Rust in the Rapid Verge, all of which are now in stock.
Supplied in packs of 10, the pack contains everything required for a neat and secure fixing including Batten End Clips and stainless steel nails.
Further fixing information can be found in the verge section of our website at https://redland.co.uk/products/components-and-accessories
