“A versatile roofing solution which lends itself to heritage projects”

Roofing solution specialists Hambleside Danelaw is one of the latest companies to renew their membership with Secured by Design (SBD).

Hambleside Danelaw provides roofing solutions to customers in three specialised areas; pitched roofing and ventilation, industrial GRP rooflights, and GRP flat roofing. With over 40 years’ experience in the construction industry, the company have unrivalled expertise when it comes to the development, manufacturing and distribution of premium quality products. 

Hambleside Danelaw’s Building Products story began in 1975, when an investment opportunity presented itself in the form of a patent for an innovative glass reinforced polyester (GRP) roofing product.  A year later, Hambleside Manufacturing Limited was established; to formally produce and market the GRP products. 

After diversifying into rooflights and cladding, in 1983 the company began manufacturing valley gutters for a Daventry-based new client, Danelaw Laminates Limited. Having worked closely for several years, discussions on a merger took place between the two companies, and a deal was done in 1992. Subsequently, Hambleside Danelaw was born.

Hambleside Danelaw’s Dryseal GRP Roofing System and GRP Valley Troughs for slated roofs, and plain & interlocking tiled roofs have achieved SBD’s Police Preferred Specification.  Find out more about Hambleside Danelaw and their SBD accredited roofing products here.  

Andy Fell, Dryseal Manager said “I am delighted that we can continue support for SBD into our twelfth consecutive year. As Dryseal is made from GRP, it has no scrap value and the system has long been regarded to be an ideal alternative to copper or lead, which are always at risk of theft.” 

Doug Skins, Secured by Design, said: "I’m delighted that Hambleside Danelaw are continuing their membership with Secured by Design, as they have been valued members with us since 2012.

“Unfortunately the theft of lead from roofs continues to be a problem across the country and the company’s Dryseal GRP Roofing System, which has achieved SBD’s Police Preferred Specification, offers a versatile roofing solution which lends itself to heritage projects which require intricate detailing, compatibility with differing substrates and an effective lead replacement or copper replacement."
