The Ubbink Eaves Performance System is designed for use in both refurbishment projects and new build to provide an effective level of eaves protection.
Available in 1.15m and 1.5m lengths, the rigid pre-formed strips are suitable for use in roof pitches of 15° to 70°. On existing building, Eaves Guard can be used to replace rotted gutter felt with the minimum of disruption to the existing slate or tile roof covering.
In new build situations, the performed Eaves Guard strip directs water away from the underlay and into the gutter. At the same time, it provides an effective underlay support flap, preventing ponding of the underlay behind the fascia board. Eaves Guard is ideal for use with the new generation of lightweight, high-performance underlays, which are not suitable for forming a drip into the gutter.
Eaves Guard is fixed to the top of the fascia with clout nails. If a plastic fascia is used which will not support clout nails, Eaves Guard may be fixed to a batten behind the fascia.
