BS 5534 – Code of practice for installing slates and tiles

As a pioneer of dry-fix roofing systems, Marley offers a comprehensive selection of suitable products and accessories to create attractive and reliable dry-fix pitched roofs that meet the recommendations of BS 5534.

BS 5250 – Managing moisture in buildings

From ridge and hip ventilation to ventilation tiles, dry verges and continuous eaves vents, Marley’s roofing system includes everything you need to ensure that a roof is fully ventilated and prevent condensation in line with BS 5250.

Part B – Fire safety

Marley Roof Defence is an intumescent roof cavity barrier that helps to prevent the spread of fire and smoke between adjoining properties in semi-detached and terraced houses. It can also be used as a cavity fire barrier in large roofs, or as a fire break in buildings such as schools, care homes and hospitals.

Part L – Conservation of fuel and power

Marley SolarTile® is a roof-integrated solar panel that replaces the tiles on the roof. The result is an attractive solar system that reduces energy costs, cuts carbon and makes a property more attractive to buyers.
