shingles, shakes, hip and ridge
Shingles and Shakes are used in both wall and roof applications. Treated or untreated they both offer an excellent low carbon footprint. A Shingle is made by sawing a block of wood on both sides to give a relatively smooth face and back. A Shake is hand split along the natural grain of the wood then re-sawn, to give a textured face and smooth back. Both offer a high degree of thermal insulation, are light to transport and easy to install.
Availability: Supplied in kits containing 300 Secret Fix clips, 20 starter clips, 325 stainless steel screws and a T-15 Driver Tip
Brooks Bros Louvre Blades (elliptical, square edged and pencil round edged) are used in Bris Soleil and other solar shading devices as a popular way of controlling solar gain and adding stylish features to a building. They offer wind and climate control, let the breeze in and create a privacy screen. They are available in a variety of profiles, sizes and most timber species and can be pre-finished like all Brooks Bros cladding profiles.
