NEW ROOF FIRE BARRIER LAUNCHED TO PREVENT FIRE SPREAD
• Marley launches proven roof fire barrier with 15-year guarantee
• New product helps to keep people and property protected
• Can be specified as part of a full Marley Roof System to deliver safety-driven reassurance for roofing projects
Roof systems manufacturer, Marley has launched a new roof fire barrier to help prevent the spread of fire between adjoining properties, allowing specifiers to add an additional safety layer to roofing projects to keep both people and properties protected.
Marley Roof Defence will help specifiers select fire mitigation measures with confidence as the system delivers full protection to prevent the spread of fire from one roof to the next. Achieving up to a 60-minute fire rating, it can also be specified as a comprehensive fire barrier in larger roofs, or as a fire break in expansive buildings with large footprints such as apartment blocks, schools, care homes, offices, and hospitals.
The easy to install system comprises a double intumescent seal, with an inverted T design, that can simply be installed under tiles and between roof battens to close all gaps in the event of fire. Furthermore, when specified as part of a full Marley roof system it comes with a 15-year guarantee, providing specifiers with assurance around its long-term performance capabilities.
Market concerns around roof fire spread risk
The new product has been developed following separate reports from the BRE and BBC Watchdog, which both raised concerns that some modern homes could have inadequate, incorrectly installed and, in some cases, no fire barriers. In terraced or semi-detached properties, this increases the risk that fire could spread rapidly through roof voids from one home to the next.
Stuart Nicholson, roof systems director at Marley, explains: “With recent reports about the dangers of concealed fires in roof voids between properties, the specification market will be keen to know about the best methods of stopping fire spread in the roof space between properties. It is important that specifiers have the reassurance they need when selecting the right product solution and we believe Roof Defence answers concerns when it comes to roof fire safety.
“When compartmentalising a roof for terraced or semi-detached housing, fire stopping is required between the top of the party wall and the roof covering. This is often achieved with a flexible mineral fibre quilt or sock, but a potential fire passage still exists at the line of the roofing battens, above the rafters, which can span across the junction between properties. New Roof Defence tackles this issue.”
Marley’s Roof Defence has outperformed all fire testing requirements and fills every void from the party wall to the bottom tile, meaning smoke and fire cannot pass through.
Roof Defence features two strips of intumescent material bonded at 90 degrees. When activated by heat, the inverted T intumescent seal expands, filling the space between roofing battens and sealing all gaps under the tiles, slates, and other roofing elements. Roof Defence is supplied on a compact roll for easy storage and handling and is available in 100mm width and 6.3 metre length.

MARLEY LAUNCH RIBA ACCREDITED CPD ON SUSTAINABILITY & SOLAR PV TO SUPPORT ARCHITECTS
With predictions of a fivefold increase in new homes built with solar technologies, roof systems manufacturer, Marley has launched a brand-new RIBA accredited CPD course on the renewable energy solution for architects and specifiers.
With the long-awaited response to the Future Homes Standard, outlining the government’s target of a 31 per cent reduction in home carbon emissions, the role of renewable energy sources, including solar PV, in achieving these targets will be crucial. The new CPD, titled ‘Sustainability & Solar PV: Pitched Roofing Specification’ will provide architects and specifiers with the expert advice and support on including solar panels within their roofing specifications.
In addition, the online seminar covers the features and sustainability benefits of solar PV, before finishing with practical guidance on successful installation and how its performance can be optimised further.
Stuart Nicholson from Marley commented: “With the recent response from UK government to the Future Homes Standard Part L, there is a clear commitment towards increasing sustainability of the UK’s housing stock. For these ambitious targets to be achieved, it is important that the industry and supply chain come together to deliver the solutions that can help reduce carbon emissions.
“As a manufacturer, we also understand we have a key role to play in achieving these targets, which is why last year we launched Marley SolarTile®, our integrated solar panel solution. Our new RIBA accredited CPD, on Sustainability & Solar PV, takes our commitment one step further, by providing architects and specifiers with additional guidance and knowledge on including solar technology within specifications and meet the predicted rise in the use of Solar PV on new builds.”
