General

The DuoPly perimeter edge trim, simplifies and speeds up the finishing of the flat roof perimeter.

Made from colour stable, impact resistant, UV and fire resistant Extruded Blown Styrene giving an economic but good looking perimeter detail.

The trims have a closed-cell, compressible PVC foam pre-applied to the underside section of the perimeter trim. These foam tapes protect against water, dirt ingress and resist weathering, UV oxidation, mildew and fungus.

To create a proper seal between the trim and the membrane, the tape must be compressed by 30% to prevent water ingress, ideally the tape will be compressed by 25-50% of its overall height. Over compression should be avoided.
