New lightweight soaker for thin leading edge tiles, including the Redland 10 Slate range
Hambleside Danelaw has launched the HD RTS individual soaker to be compatible with the new Redland 10 Slate range. Other thin leading edge tiles compatible with the HD RTS are the Russell Galloway, Lothian, Moray and Polden and the Quinn Devenish and Rathmore.
Unique to the market, Hambleside’s individual soaker range now covers almost all flat tile and slate types and offers another simple environmentally friendly solution to abutment details.
Installation is quick and simple as our soakers are pre-formed. The contractor simply has to clip each individual soaker over the leading edge of the tile before placing the tile over the batten and against the roof abutment. This means a guaranteed reduction in labour time and the dry fix solution means that there is no need for mortar so they can be fitted in any weather conditions. The HD RTS sits on top of the tiles in the same fashion as the now well established and popular HD MDS, RRS and SRRS soakers.
The soaker is manufactured from polypropylene which is lightweight, safe to handle, holds no value to thieves and does not cause unsightly staining from oxidation. As with all Hambleside Danelaw individual soakers, left and right hand options are available and the upstands can be finished with lead or other cover flashing alternatives such as GRP.
