What Flashing Do I Choose for Zinc or Metal Panel Roofing?

If you're looking for the perfect flashing for your zinc or metal sheet roofing, to support your FAKRO roof windows, you're in the right place.

Your flat sheet or zinc flashing choices are:

Flashing for Metal Panel Sheeting EBV-A


  • Enables tight connection of a roof window with the roofing material such as panel sheet with prefabricated (system) joints.
  • Specially prepared elements of the EBV-A flashing allow quick fitting and aesthetically pleasing finish around the roof window. The need to perform complicated and time-consuming metal working around the roof window has been removed.
  • The window installed at the installation depth V does not protrude significantly beyond the roof surface which greatly improves the aesthetics of the roof.
  • Used in roofs with pitches 15° to 90° for V installation depth.
  • Available in EBS-A version for smoke ventilation windows and in EBW-A for side hung escape windows.
  • EBV-AT Thermo – On the inside of the flashing there is a glued flexible insulating material which adheres tightly to window frame constituting a thermo-insulated frame. Thermo-insulating material has excellent insulating values (coefficient λ ). Below the level of the batten the window is insulated by a wool insulating kit XDP.
  • All flashing kits are available in conservation style (RAL 9005 black).
