Type X Cavitray

Cavity tray with flashing for gable abutments
‘Type X Cavitray is made from recycled polypropylene. The preformed DPC cavitray is complete with a choice of attached ready-shaped lead/ lead-subsitute/ copper or aluminium flashing to form a stepped cavity DPC and flashing at the abutment of a pitched roof with a cavity wall. The Type X is the only “high performance” classified cavitray for gable abutments, and offers the builder numerous benefits. Ideal for new-build applications.

The Type X Cavitray speeds up operations on site and ensures a good and known quality of build. Type X trays are handed, to suit left hand slopes and right hand slopes. Every tray is a self-contained unit, with its own ready-shaped lead flashing attached. Select long leads to dress directly over tiles, or alternatively short leads to dress over the upstand of a secret gutter or soaker.

Unlike other systems, the Type X has an adjustable cavity upstand so it always suits the actual cavity width and is therefore always compatible. Just bed in position and flush point as the external skin is raised. At a later date the lead flashing may be dressed.

Cavity Trays Ltd are the only tray manufacturer awarded European Technical Approval’
