Available Finishes 

Cross-corrugated Finish

Designed for use where the flashing has to be moulded over and around complex shapes such as profiled roof tiles and corner junctions. The unique cross-corrugation pattern allows the product to curve and bend in more than one direction at once.

Embossed Finish

Designed for application requiring less complex shaping such as pitched roof valleys, secret gutters, soakers for slates and double-lap tiles, and box gutters.
