The hooded ventilation design of Redi-Ridge provides a clear ventilation path.

Redi-Ridge is a universal, ventilated dry fix ridge and hip system, consisting of mechanical fixings and a grey coloured powder coated aluminium roll face.

Suitable for use with all Red Bank standard ridge tile types, the design of Redi-Ridge provides a clear ventilation path, even with slates, whilst preventing water ingress, and overcomes the durability and weathering issues associated with other fabric based roll ridge systems.

Redi-Ridge eliminates the need for intricate ridge union pieces or unsightly mortar joints between ridge tiles which saves time with installation and gives builders the ability to meet Building Regulations Approved Document C 2004 which stipulates requirements for resistance to moisture penetration, and BS5250:2011+A1:2016 which defines the level of air openness required of the roof covering. Install continuously to provide ventilation area equivalent to 5000mm2/m.
