Marley Eternit Clay 450mm capped angle ridge

The Marley Eternit clay ridge comes in a variety of different angles. The benefit of this is that it allows the ridge to fit flusher to the pitch of the roof, giving a cleaner appearance. The ridge is installed with a stainless steel screw at the rear of the ridge. The screw is then covered by the cap of the next ridge. We recommend applying a bead of sealant under each cap to increase the ridges weather proofing.

Yates Slate stock the ridge in both Red Smooth and Slate black, for the following angles:

  • 90 degree.
  • 105 degree.
  • 115 degree.
  •  125 degree.
  • 135 degree.

CS CR2 mechanically dry fixed capped Clay ridge

The CR2 clay ridge is a universal angled ridge to suit a wide range of roof pitches. The interlocking cap creates a watertight seal. The ridge is installed by using either 1 or 2 stainless steel screws depending on weather conditions, the screws are installed with a washer to prevent water ingress.

This ridge is ideal for stockists as it alleviates the need to stock a wide range of angles for various roof pitches.

The coverage of the ridge is 410mm with the overall length being 450mm including the cap.
