Roofing specialist Cedral launches new accessory range

Cedral, the UK’s leading provider of fibre cement slates, has launched a new range of fittings and accessories, further emphasising its long-term commitment to installers and contractors.

Formerly under the brand name of Eternit, Cedral has developed a wide range of high-quality fittings and accessories that perfectly complement its market leading Rivendale, Birkdale, Thrutone Smooth and Thrutone Textured fibre cement slates. Available via a nationwide network of stockists and distributors, the new range includes:

  • An expanded and improved range for ridges and hips – including a new dry ridge ventilation system, end cap and smaller, more compact fibre cement ridges which are 525mm.
  • Verge trims – to fit both new and renovated roofs.
  • Main roof ventilation – including in-line slate vent and new large capacity vent.
  • General fixing – new slater’s tub including copper nails and disc rivets.

To support the new range of roofing accessories, Cedral has produced an extensive portfolio of technical product information including wallcharts, product literature and fixings information which is all available via the company’s website.

Lisa Grosse, brand manager at Cedral, said: “Our mission is help installers and contractors to create beautiful, sustainable and long-lasting homes with the minimum of hassle. Over the last few months, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to create this new range of fittings and accessories that will bring greater consistency and quality to our slate products.

“Post-lockdown, roofers are now busier than ever – and so our aim is to make it even simpler for them to specify the right fittings and accessories for the job. We’re delighted with the new range and we’re sure this development will be welcomed by the industry.”

All of Cedral’s roofing accessories are BS5534 compliant and are carefully designed, tested and manufactured to save time on-site to provide the best protection for every roofing project.
