IntroductionType S soakers are preformed moulded units manufactured from lightweight high density polypropylene. Soakers are termed ‘dry units’ as they are incorporated when the tiles are laid and do not require any accompanying wet trade working. Type S soakers are designed to be used with plain tiles only and are handed. When positioned in accordance with best practice the vertical 75mm upstand rises tightly against the masonry providing a uniform medium over which flashings may be dressed. The base of each soaker extends 100mm under the tile and permits easy interleaving with the turn-down portion at the top of each closer aiding positive placement. The upper run-off surface of each soaker has a smooth finish with a textured underside that rests on the tile surface.
Pre-shaped soaker for use only with plain tiles where the roof abuts a wall.
