Roof ridge capping has traditionally been supplied at a fixed roof pitch angle, resulting in extra work for roofing installers who have needed to physically open or close the leg angle of the ridging to match the pitch — often with less than perfect results. Roofing Industries is pleased to announce a solution to this problem with the launch of VariPitch ridging — a pitch-ready round-top capping designed to match the pitch of longrun roofs.
VariPitch is the result of new innovative rollforming technology now available exclusively at Roofing Industries. The new technology allows for the machine operator to specify the required roof pitch to ensure the capping will perfectly fit the roof.
VariPitch ridging provides significant time and labour cost savings as roofers only need to install the project-ready ridge capping. VariPitch ridging can also be manufactured in any length — eliminating the need for extra lap joints, and reducing the potential for leakage.
By providing a project-ready ridging option, VariPitch ensures roofs have a clean, sleek aesthetic without the visible deformations often caused by manual folding of ridge capping.
VariPitch can be manufactured in most traditional metal roofing substrates, surface finishes and pre-painted colours to perfectly match the roof of each project. The round-top profile of VariPitch provides an aesthetically attractive finish perfect for residential and commercial roofs alike.
Roofing Industries is currently updating their extensive suite of drawings with VariPitch so that architects and designers can simply add pitch-ready requirements to any plan for the installer to use when ordering from Roofing Industries.
The smart choice for streamlining roof installation while providing superior aesthetics, VariPitch is now available across Roofing Industries’ 14 branches nationwide.
