At Hambleside Danelaw, we supply both dry fix and traditional open valley troughs for a variety of tiles. All our valley troughs are made from glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), an excellent alternative to lead. For one, they can be installed in up to half the time and cost of a traditional lead solution – largely thanks to their reduced weight, which makes transportation and cutting easier. Additionally, GRP is not valuable to thieves.
Our valley troughs are manufactured and designed to ensure a fault-free valley is provided. They also come with a 30-year service life guarantee, giving excellent peace of mind.
Unlike traditional valley troughs, dry fix valley trough are mortarless, providing hidden water gulleys at the roof valleys. There’s no need for any special eaves closure pieces or counter battens and they create a close-cut appearance.
Dry fix valley troughs are a fantastic selling point, as they are maintenance-free, making your build more valuable to homeowners. They can be installed in the winter during cold and wet weather, unlike mortar valleys, so there are no obstacles to completion no matter the time of year.
Designed as a modern alternative to traditional lead troughs, open troughs are a safe and efficient way to collect rainwater runoff. Boasting excellent capacity, they are perfect for British roof, especially in areas which receive heavy rainfall.
As well as provide a weatherproof drainage channel where cut tiles meet, open valley troughs can implement a weatherproof junction at change of direction and other features.
Hambleside Danelaw is a market leader in valley troughs, so our products are well worth the investment you make. Poor valley troughs can result in water ingress or premature aging – always buy the best!
