Fascia & Guttering
Fascias and Bargeboards
Jumbo boards are strong, load bearing profiles. These boards are secured directly to the rafter foot and fully support the weight of eaves tiles and rainwater systems. A wide range of sizes ensures specifier requirements are met. Soffit boards are available in the form of vented and unvented flat boards and interlocking cladding profiles. A fluted (unvented) board is also available.
16mm fascia and 9mm vented and unvented soffit boards match most window and conservatory systems currently in use. Each foiled finish is accompanied by a full compliment of colour matched corners, joints and trims. Cladding profiles are also available in foiled finishes.
M-Boss, Soffits and Vents
M-Boss fascia profiles provide the perfect combination of a traditional timber appearance, with the practical, low maintenance benefits of cellular PVC.
M-Boss fascias are available in a range of standard sizes including a 405mm double-ended board which enables easy box-end construction. The range is complemented by matching M-Boss corners and joints.
M-Boss fascias may be used in conjunction with plain vented or unvented soffits. Matching or contrasting soffit colours are available.
Soffit Boards and Ventilation
GeePee plain soffit boards are 9mm thick and are suitable for either lay-on or angled soffit details. Polo ventilated soffit boards are available with slot configurations in either single (10mm) or double rows (25mm). All Polo boards are 9mm thick, maximising structural integrity, eleminating bowing and minimising fixing requirements. Open V and Tee Gee tongue and groove boards are also available for wide ‘feature’ soffits.
Over Fascia Ventilation
Where a ‘clean’ or unvented soffit is required, ventilation may be provided over the fascia using an Over Fascia Ventilator or a Vented Eaves Protector, fixed securely to the top of the fascia board. The support provided by the vented eaves protector eradicates ‘ponding’ which may occur behind the fascia board where there is a tendency for the sarking felt to sag. Over-fascia ventilation provides a continuous 10mm air path.
Through Fascia Ventilation
The Polo range of ventilated soffit boards provides the equivalent of a 10mm or 25mm air path as required. Strip ventilators allow additional or alternative means of ventilation to the roof void. These are designed to fit Swish 9mm GeePee soffits and are available in both 10mm and 25mm configurations.
Bargeboards, Spires and Finials
These profiles add traditional character to any building. They combine the high performance, low maintenance characteristics of PVC with lasting good looks and are ideal for both new build and refurbishment projects.
Decorative Dentil mouldings add elegance to the eaves of any property, creating individual architectural detailing. The range includes a choice of 4 sizes, and differing designs.
Gallows Brackets are load bearing and capable of offering structural support to door and window canopies. The surface pattern mimics the traditional appearance of timber with a high level of bevelling detail.
The Feature Corbel has sharply defined sweeping curves which are most effective when installed below a flat top canopy or used in pairs beneath oriel windows.
PVC Sustainable Rainwater Systems
Rainwater Systems are ideal for those who wish to specify quality products that have a reduced carbon footprint. They are unique in the UK in that they contain a high proportion of post consumer recycled PVC.
Approximately 84% by weight of gutters and pipes is composed of recycled material that is derived from old PVC windows and gutter systems that have been removed from buildings when being refurbished or demolished.
The production of PVC components from recycled material requires a fraction of the energy needed to manufacture virgin PVC and so 70% saving in CO2 output is made during the production of gutter and pipe profiles when compared to production of 100% virgin material.
Cellular PVC cladding can significantly improve the thermal properties of a building and provides an excellent low maintenance alternative to timber. The Swish cladding system offers excellent colourfastness and considerable design choice.
Cladding profiles are commonly used on the cheeks and apex of dormer windows, as a long life replacement for softwood claddings and as a ceiling soffit for large open porches. The Foiled range is compatible with many window and conservatory system colours, and features colour matched trims and joints.
