Designed for use with plain tile and slate roofs, the Heritage Valley combines the proven benefits of GRP construction, with the classic, heritage aesthetic of a close mitred valley – previously only attainable with lead soakers.
GRP is much lighter than lead, completely non-toxic and because it has no scrap value, it’s not subject to any risk of theft. In addition to these advantages, the Heritage Valley also brings significant cost savings when compared to lead.
Firstly, the material cost of GRP is lower, resulting in a reduced initial outlay – and with no specialist lead working skills required, labour costs are reduced too. Further savings are delivered by the innovative design of the product itself.
The unique, dry-fix ’S’ design of the Heritage Valley maintains a wide drainage channel but has a much narrower span between the tile support ledges. This design eliminates the need for costly valley roof tiles on plain tile roofs. With the short span between support ledges, the quantity of slate / tile and a half going into the valley is significantly reduced: another huge cost saving.
The Heritage Valley complements Filon’s existing valley trough range and meets a specific need in the roofing sector with a realistic price point.
