Verging on Perfection:  Danelaw’s Verg Family

The verge is generally the location on a roof where the tiles end at the gable, this is a potential point of weakness in the weatherproofing of the roof.  Hambleside Danelaw produce a variety of solutions to meet the requirements for the securing and weatherproofing of various tile types.  Verge systems are installed to prevent water ingress and resist wind uplift, and our mechanically fixed dry verge systems eliminate the need for mortar in both new-build and refurbishment applications.

All of our dry verge systems are tested for wind uplift resistance as required and comply with the BS 8612 Standard for dry fixed roofing products.

Hambleside Danelaw produce a range of tile verge units that offer a straightforward way to remove the need for mortar and allow for a secure application to the roof.  We have five types of interlocking verge systems, which are:

Danelaw Verges For Slate Roofing

Danelaw also manufacture continuous GRP verges for slate roofing which provide neat weather protection for new and re-roofing applications or for retro-fit situations.  Requiring no special components at junctions, our continuous verges can be fitted in all weather.  They are manufactured from GRP and come with a 30-year service life guarantee.

GRP is an incredibly versatile thermoset material, meaning it is generally much more durable and less affected by heat  and is more thermally stable than other plastics, so will not warp or buckle in normal operating temperatures.  In addition to this, GRP verges have no scrap value to thieves, meaning your roof can remain secure in more ways than one!
