FILON PRODUCTS LTD, the innovative GRP construction products manufacturer, is extremely pleased to announce the arrival of the Heritage Valley Trough. This ground-breaking, patent-pending GRP valley trough provides a simple and extremely cost-effective method of creating a close mitred valley in slate roofs and plain tiled roofs.
All natural and man-made slate and clay or concrete plain tile roofs can now benefit from the improved aesthetic of a closemitred valley without the normal high costs associated with it.
The Heritage Valley is a hidden valley trough positioned completely beneath the roof slates/tiles and needs no lead soakers between courses. As the distance to span between supports is very short but maintains a wide drainage channel by the use of its super-S design, the quantity of slate/tile and a half going into the valley is significantly reduced. This offers a great material cost saving.
This incredible, pioneering valley trough has been put through its paces with a BRE Wind Driven Rain test and outperformed the slates and tiles at every point of the test programme. Therefore its performance is assured and provides the heritage aesthetic of a traditional close-mitred valley without any of the expensive materials and labour time normally needed.
Filon has provided the means of producing a beautiful valley for less cost than a normal dry fix or open valley trough.
