Product info

Eternit has been producing profiled sheeting for over 100 years. Eternit FarmTec is perfect for agricultural, livestock, and equestrian buildings, not to mention a whole host of other sectors.
• Moisture absorption: ability to absorb up to 25% of its dry weight in moisture
• Durability: rust, rot and corrosion resistance in excess of 50 years
• Insulation: the thermal and acoustic properties of fibre cement produce a more stable internal environment than steel, resulting in improved wellbeing and productivity
• High absorbency: minimises the risk of condensation dripping

Please note that agricultural ventilation systems are generally used on roof pitches of 15° and above.
There are two types of open ridge: unprotected and protected. Both provide efficient ventilation whilst simultaneously reducing draughts. Rain falling into the ridge area will be drained away above the profiled sheeting. It is, however, important to protect the supporting rafters from the elements with a flashing.
Advantages of open ridges
• Provides an efficient outflow of air
• Designed to fit any roof design, but particularly suitable for spaced roofing
• Allows rain to be channelled away over the roof
Unprotected open ridges
Ideal for farm buildings with central cleaning passages.
Eternit’s open ridge fittings are suitable for roofs with pitches from 10°to 22.5°.
Protected open ridges
In this ventilation system, the ridge units should be installed in the same fashion as for unprotected open ridges. Additionally, however, the ridge unit is bridged at 750mm centres by galvanised metal straps manufactured to suit the pitch of the roof. The straps are fixed at an angle of 5° from the horizontal, semi compressed fibre cement flat sheet or poly carbonate soffit strip is then bolted to the straps along the length of the ridge to form a cover. This cover must be positioned 20mm minimum below the top of the upstands of the ridge units
