We are constantly looking at ways of improving our low pitch LightWeight Roofing System. We are delighted to offer our specially made foam gap filler. Our foam gap fillers are a just as unique as our Plastic LightWeight Roofing System as it is specially manufactured to our tile. 

We have developed this simple solution so as to offer an addition to the current roofing putty (Flexim)

The foam gap filler is sold in pairs of strips, covering the length of each tile (118cm)

These foam strips are formed to the exact top and bottom profiles of each tile.

 

Each pair consists of two strips, the first strip will fix (by means of self-adhesive tape) along the lower lip along the bottom of the ridge tile.

As one screws the ridge tiles down the moulded profile fits perfectly to form a snug firm seal. This product effectively hides the gap and makes a weather proof seal.

 

In some cases where the final tile fits onto the last baton (closest to the gutter/facia) there is a gap to be considered .

That’s where the second strip comes in!

It simply fits under the tile, to hide the exposed baton and gap, again making an effective weather proof seal.

It also has a self-adhesive tape to help keep the strip in place whilst the tile is screwed into place.

 

Our foam gap filler like the rest of our light weight roofing system is extremely easy to work with, and of course can be cut very easily with either scissors or a Stanley knife .

Its available as an accessory on our eCommerce site.

Since our launch of our new foam fillers, we have had a customer purchase these with a shed bundle package. He was happy to take some images of the installation of the foam fillers for us. I have put together all the images to create a slideshow.

We wanted a covered patio area and discovered the website. The tiles are light and were put up in just a few hours compared with a couple of days for concrete tiles. The infrastructure is a lot lighter and the whole project was completed far quicker than if we had used conventional tiles.

Result, very noticeable reduction in solar heating on sunny days, retains heat better when heated on cool days, and is much quieter, rain and road noise greatly reduced. Had a bit of a struggle with the Ubiflex, found it to be ‘floppier’ than traditional lead, more difficult to feed a long length into slot cut in mortar. Once in place, Ubiflex sealants worked well, and it was easy to mould the flashing to fit the tiles.
