Ariel Plastics argues that merchants can edge ahead of the competition with its new Coroverge Universal Dry Verge system — a re-engineered dry fix roofing solution that is said to be fast, easy-to-fit and fully compatible with an expansive range of roof tiles.
Developed, re-engineered and designed for ease of installation and to provide a neat mortarless finish at roof verges on new build and retrofit projects, the Coroverge Universal Dry Verge system is a 100% mortar-free, dry fix solution, offering a hard-wearing, durable and attractive finish to the roofline without the inconvenience of using mortar bedding.
Manufactured from lightweight, modern plastic materials that are easy-to-install and weather resistant, the system protects the roof verge from wind uplift, pest infestation and weather degradation. Available in Brown, Anthracite Grey and Terracotta, this all-weather system includes Starter Piece, Verge Section, Batten Clip, and, Angled and Half-Round Ridge Caps options to suit the ridge style.
Fully adjustable for installation with tiles of between 260mm-350mm gauges, it is designed to be quick and easy to install, and offers “a wealth of features to make life easier for the installer, giving a more superior dry verge solution for both new build and renovation projects”.
For example, the temporary ‘True-Line’ guide in the Starter Piece ensures it is correctly lined up with the tiles, guaranteeing perfect alignment on the roof, whilst a handy cut out area provides the flexibility to work around existing gutters.
Attention to detail and consideration of the installers needs are said to have played a crucial part in developing this product. For instance, the Verge Sections are not handed to fit both the left hand and right hand sides of the roof verge for ease of installation. Similarly, the ‘True-Connect’ locators fit the ‘True Mount’ allowing adjustable positioning of the Verge Sections to suit various tile gauges.
An in-built ‘drip strip’, meanwhile, allows rainwater to run off the Verge, avoiding wall staining and potential damp. Furthermore, there are flex points on the Ridge Caps which allow for differing roof angles and a choice of angled and half round options to suit the ridge style.
Commenting on the launch, Paul Goddard, Sales Director of Ariel Plastics, said: “With the construction industry reaping the benefits of dry fix products, we have re-engineered the Coroverge Universal Dry Verge System so that it is fast and simple to install, and fully compatible with a wide range of tiles. It’s set to become the go-to, hassle-free dry verge system for merchant customers, offering a clean, attractive and maintenance-free finish.”
Laying claim to “offering the widest choice of roofing sheet, rooflights and roofing accessories available in the UK”, Ariel Plastics states that it has built a reputation for providing specialist roofing and glazing solutions “for any application”. Selling sells predominantly through independent and national merchants, the company says that the new Coroverge Universal Dry Verge system complements its extensive Corodrain roof drainage and Corovent roof ventilation portfolios.
