Timloc welcome the BS 8612 requirement.

June 2018

We are proud to state that all of our Dry Verge Range meet the BS 8612 requirement.

Timloc welcome the dry fix standard BS 8612. This requirement sets out the minimum performance requirements for dry-fix roofing products, to ensure that they are fit-for-purpose and provide you with the confidence that our products are of the highest quality.

Since BS 5534: Slating and Tiling was revised in 2014, there has been a shift in the market towards the use of dry fix systems. The popularity of the products means that there has been a huge increase in the amount of systems available and although they may look similar they can vary significantly in terms of quality and performance. To help address this, BS 8612 sets out key quality and performance criteria and test methods under six essential requirements:

• Material specification and durability.
• Mechanical resistance
• Ventilation for ridge and hip systems
• Rain performance
• Geometric characteristics
• Marking, labelling and installation instructions

Previously there was no agreed way of ensuring products were fit for purpose but now, compliance with BS 8612 will give you the reassurance that our products are manufactured to the highest quality. Here at Timloc we are proud to state that all of our Dry Verge Range meet the BS 8612 requirement.
