These FAKRO flashings have been designed specifically for use with standard 94 x 118cm FAKRO windows where the window is recessed into the roofline to create a clean and subtle finish.
This flashing is designed for deep profiled interlocking tiles that include, but are not limited to, Redland pantiles, Forticrete Centurion and Senator tiles, Sandtoft Shire, Double Pantile, Double Roman and more.
The FAKRO conservation flashing has been manufactured from aluminium in a ridged shape, which allows malleability around tile profiles. Additionally, the flashing features a polyester coating, which adds durability and increases the lifespan of the flashing. The flashing is then finished in black (RAL9005), creating a subtle finish which tends to fit in with most roof colourings.
What are FAKRO conservation windows?
FAKRO conservation windows have been manufactured by FAKRO specifically for buildings and homes that are situated in conservation areas. The FAKRO conservation windows are designed in a way that will meet a number of planning restrictions in situations where regular FAKRO roof windows would not pass the planning stages.
FAKRO conservation windows are designed with a single vertical black bar down the middle of the window, and black cladding, which not only makes them more suitable for traditional construction, but also helps them to blend into the roof structure more, which helps to retain the character of older buildings on the exterior.
Why do you need FAKRO flashings?
Flashings are an integral part of the installation of a FAKRO window, and although often disregarded, are incredibly important.
Flashings create a tight connection between the roof window and the roof tiles, ensuring that the window is fitted accurately, creating a neat finish.
However, the FAKRO flashing is not just used for visual effect, the flashing is also used to protect the window from weather conditions, creating efficient rainwater drainage with the ridged design, and preventing water entry at the points where the window connects to the roof.
By installing FAKRO flashings on your tiled roof, you are eliminating the potential for water to penetrate the roof, which prevents damp, condensation and structural issues from occurring over time. FAKRO flashings also help to increase the lifespan of the roof and the conservation roof window.
