In order to address the needs of the client our team of engineers sat down with the Roofing contractor and we planned a bespoke production of verge trim with 0.98mm thickness.

After the design and testing process were able to provide the contractor with exactly what they needed and they ordered Verge Trim and Apex to complete the finish on the newly-built homes. This was the first time that we produced the Apex piece. This is no standard in our product and provides a neat and aesthetically-pleasing finish at the apex.

The development boasts some of the first homes in the new town of Northstowe, located eight miles from Cambridge and close to the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway.  With shops, local services, health, education and leisure facilities. The town was designed to be complete community with a network of cycling and walking routes, plus a new link road connecting the town centre to the A14.

Aluminium Ridge Capping provides a cost-effective alternative to traditional tile or slate ridge. The products are available for use with either Slates, Tiles and almost any roofing application. It provides a neat, maintenance free, lightweight and totally weatherproof finish to your roof.


  • Lightweight and Durable
  • Easy and quick to install
  • Requires no maintenance once installed
  • Extensive range of colours available
  • Less obtrusive than traditional ridges for bay and conservatory roofs

They were always available to discuss our requirements from initial contact, through the design process, up to the final installation of the Slate Dry Verge solution. We have been provided with a strong and durable product that will stand the test of time and we look forward to working with Kytun again in the future”.
