Accurately designed flashing details guarantee a tough and neat fit with the used roofing material. The purpose of flashing kits is to warrant good drainage away from the window and to offer protection . Since there are many roofing types, FAKRO offers a range of flashing options to fit nearly all needs.
All flashings are factory-made using aluminum and permanently protected with a polyester varnish. The typical color is brown RAL 7022, which does not stick out much when used with most roofing types.
