Product details

Product information

Protect A1 is a third generation roofing underlay which has been developed specifically to overcome the disadvantages of traditional Type 1F felts and second generation plastic sheet materials.

  • Store rolls on a flat dry surface, protected from the weather. Do not lay Protect A1 in direct contact with any undried timber preservative (whether water-based or solvent-based). In accordance with good building practice, this product should be covered as soon as possible after installation and preferably not more than one month after initial exposure
  • Weatherproof

It has unrestricted use from zones 1 to 5 at the maximum batten gauge of 345mm, to BS 5534.

  • Easy to cut, clean, light to handle and unaffected by temperature changes
  • Designed to have an absorbent under surface to prevent condensation drip-off
