Eaves Protection Tray

Roofing felt perishes over a period of time, and is at its most vulnerable at the lower end, the eaves. This is where the felt can sag and water can collect, this is called ‘ponding’. After some-time the ponding effect causes the felt to rot and rupture, allowing the water to access the roofing system.
The Eaves Guard/Felt Support Tray, which is plastic, prevents this as it is rigid enough to prevent the overlapping felt to sag or pond, and so avoids the natural breakdown process.
The Eaves Guard is the most cost-effective way of providing a complete and robust felt support system that will not deteriorate, giving additional protection to the fascia detail, and suitable for use with all slates and tiles.
Installation: Position the eaves guard on top of the fascia board and nail in place. Adjacent trays are designed to lap over each other, minimum of 100mm, easily forming a continuous run. The trays should sit on top of the over fascia vent, if fitted; a comb filler may also be fixed at the same time.
The felt underlay should be pulled tight to ensure there are no troughs that can retain any water. Ensure the felt finishes before the fascia, therefore it is not exposed to the elements, and is not subject to decay.
The Eaves Protection System is designed for use in both new build and refurbishment, which provides an effective level of eaves protection, and fitted with the minimum of disruption.The EPS is ideal for use with the new generation of lightweight, high performance underlays, which are not suitable for forming a drip into the gutter.

 

The EPS are ideal for remedial work, as well as all new build projects. They are durable and resistant to decay, which improves the performance of other roofing materials. They are effective, quick and easy to fit and the most cost effective way of creating an Eaves Protection System.
