The Manthorpe Dry Verge System provides an attractive finish to the verge detail for most makes and profiles of Concrete Interlocking Tiles laid between 280mm and 345mm batten gauge.
The Verge Units can be easily fitted to each tile in succession. The system is mortar-free and can be fixed in all weather conditions. Once fitted they are weatherproof and maintenance free. The Manthorpe Dry Verge is available in Terracotta, Dark Brown, Slate Grey and White to compliment any variation of roof design. The Dry Verge system preserves the ‘stepped’ appearance of the roof tiles while maintaining the continuous line on the underside of the verge.
- Fast and easy to fit in all weather conditions
- Compatible with most types of interlocking concrete tiles 280mm to 345 gauge
- Special design features to ease fitting
- Exceptionally secure
- Robust uPVC material
Each dry verge unit is designed to cap the end of a single course of tiles. The upper end of the units are mechanically fixed into the timber overhang of the tiling battens, with the lower end fixed securely into the verge unit below.
The first verge is held in place by an eaves closure unit, with the meeting of the top two verge units covered by a ridge end cap.
