Side Abutment Detail

 

Using lead flashing

The Decra tile is turned up to form an upstand against the wall and weatherproofed with a lead cover flashing (see drawing below).

Using Decra scribed side flashing

A Scribed Side Flashing is available for use with Decra Classic systems. The flashing may also be used with Decra Plus Tile, but it is available in standard gauge only so does not offer the same standard of vandal resistance as Decra Plus.
