As we can see from the diagram, the Thatch-Safe® sits on the rafters and under the thatch. This provides a barrier between the thatch and the roof structure with no counter battening required due to the breathability of Thatch-Safe®.
Thatch-Safe® is flexible so it is easy to fit around windows and in valleys. It can also be double wrapped around the chimney – reducing the risk of heat transfer from the chimney.
Joints are overlapped and fixed with the usual battens required for the thatch to be fixed to, so it is a simple and effective solution, easily applied.
