Roll with it

Marley Eternit launches new Lead Replacement Roll to save roofers time and money.

The ongoing loss of skills in the roofing sector, as a result of the labour shortage and ageing workforce, means there is a clear need for manufacturers to develop easy-to-fix products. Marley Eternit’s new Universal Lead Replacement Roll has been developed as a time saving solution that doesn’t require specialist fitting skills. The new roll has excellent aesthetics and rigidity while also being easy and quick to install.

During the development process for the new dry fix product, Marley Eternit carried out extensive installation tests on various roll materials, before selecting the one with the highest adhesive performance and flexibility.

As a result, the new Universal Lead Replacement Roll has a number of key advantages that make it a great choice for contractors:

• Butyl adhesive backing
• Ultra-sticky
• UV and age resistant
• Ensures a quick and secure fix
• Manufactured from creped coated aluminium
• Reinforced with metal grid for strength and rigidity
• Can stretch up to 60% to mould around even the deepest profile tiles
• Up to 80% lighter than more traditional options

You can buy the new Universal Lead Replacement Roll individually or as part of a full roof system. It’s a valuable addition to Marley Eternit’s existing comprehensive accessory range, including universal dry verge, underlays, GRP valleys, roofing battens and much more.

As well as being a cost-effective solution, the lightweight nature of the new Universal Lead Replacement Roll makes it easy to handle, helping to reduce health and safety risks.
