Can be used as a temporary roof covering
BMTRADA Independently certified
Helps to avoid condensation risk
The Protect VP300 Underlay is available in 50 square metre or 75 square metre rolls. It is a medium weight vapour permeable roof underlay, the VP300’s vapour resistance exceeds the level required by BS 5250 and also has a higher strength than many other underlays in its class. Suitable for all pitched roofs particularly fully supported applications. Protect VP300 is CE marked and certified by BM TRADA . It provides a cost effective solution when higher specified roof underlays are not required.
Protect VP300 can provide a secondary line of defence against wind driven rain and snow, the reduction in wind uplift loads on the roof covering and is also able to be used as a temporary roof covering
before the slates or tiles are applied.
Roll width: 1.5m and Roll length: 50m
Roll total area: 75m2 and Roll weight: 9.83kg
The Protect roofing underlay has an embossed grey upper and white lower surface. Printed with product branding for ease of identification.
As with all vapour-permeable underlays, the Protect VP300 Underlay should not be laid in direct contact with un-dried timber preservatives. This applies to both water and solvent based preservatives. Protect OFV Eaves Skirt should be used at all gutter details.
