Roofing, Flooring & Insulation Products – June 2021


Range Extensions

Based on recent customer insights and home improvement trends, Klober has revealed a number of range extensions to offer its distributors and contractors more choice. For instance, the GRP Secret Gutter joins the existing PVC version, and is said to be well-suited for dormer conversions due to its ability to provide a secondary line of defence against wind driven rain at wall abutments.

In addition, available in black and perforated for ventilation, the new 6m Dry Ridge Kit is suitable for clay and concrete applications. Finally, in response to demand for more solutions that are quick and easy to install, Klober’s eaves ventilation offering now includes more sizes of its 3-in-1 Eaves Vent Pack.

Roof Defence system

Described as being easy-to-install, Marley’s new roof fire barrier has been launched to help prevent the spread of fire between adjoining properties. Providing full fire protection from one roof to the next and achieving up to a 60-minute fire rating, it can also be used as a fire barrier in large roofs, or as a fire break in buildings such as schools, care homes and hospitals.

The Roof Defence system comprises a double intumescent seal, with an inverted T design, that can simply be installed under tiles and between roof battens to close all gaps in the event of fire. It is also backed up with a free 15-year warranty.

Environmental benefits

Superglass is highlighting the sustainability benefits of its glass wool insulation, noting that its products “naturally save energy in use” by helping buildings retain heat and create more comfortable living environments. In addition, the company says that, over its lifetime, its insulation will save far more energy than is used in making and transporting it.

The business describes itself as ‘climate positive’, looking to do more than just cancelling out the effect it has on the planet. Its glass wool insulation is all made from consumer waste glass, which reduces waste and saves valuable resources, whilst its finished products are then compressed to significantly cut down the packaging needed, saving space and weight to increase transportation efficiency and reduce delivery miles.
