This FAKRO flashing has been manufactured specifically for use in conjunction with standard 55 x 98cm FAKRO windows on tiled roofs.
This flashing is designed for profiled interlocking tiles including Marley Ashmore, Marley Double Roman, Marley Ludlow, Redland Landmark and Redland Saxon tiles, and Forticrete Hardrow and Minislate.
The FAKRO flashing has been manufactured using aluminium and is covered with a polyester varnish to add extra durability. The standard colour of the flashing is a brown grey shade (RAL 7022), which is a good match with most roof tiles.
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 are used to 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 and structural issues from occurring over time. FAKRO flashings also help to increase the lifespan of the roof and the standard roof window.
