The Manthorpe Ridge End Caps work in conjunction with the Manthorpe SmartVerge® Dry Verge System and SmartVerge® Linear Dry Verge System to provide a neat and attractive finish for most makes of Round and Angled Concrete Ridge Tiles.
The Ridge End Caps provide durable protection at each end of the ridge, eliminating problems caused by water penetration whilst preventing the entry of birds and large insects into the roof cavity. Each Ridge End Cap is supplied with fixings and fitting instructions and can be quickly and easily fixed directly to the Ridge Batten(s) in all weather conditions.
- Suitable for new build or refurbishment situations
- 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
To finish the roof at the apex, place the Ridge End Cap over the end of the ridge tile so that it hooks over both verge units. Using the screws provided, screw into the Ridge End Cap through the desired blind nail hole and into the end of the ridge batten, or, if this is not available, into the top tiling battens.
