Eaves flashing/closure - 6" corrugated asbestos roof

I'd have thought someone must sell lengths of galvanize or whatever cut into the shape of the corrugations that you can screw/nail to the purlin to make a rodent/bird proof seal? Maybe I'm googling the wrong thing - find lots of those foam corrugation fillers but surely anything can chew through them in no time, the nearest thing I've come across is this https://www.roofingsuperstore.co.uk/product/marley-eternit-6-universal-eaves-corrugation-closure-natural-grey.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIy4Kdz4qC7AIVVOR3Ch160QSAEAQYAyABEgLL3_D_BwE but that looks like its designed for a new roof, not to be retrofitted to an old one, and as far as I can see only the flat vertical bit is needed?

Do such things exist and if so what is the term for them please? Trying to keep vermin out of our old grain store. Guess I could cut them myself if it came to it.

We fit fibre cement eaves fillers on grain stores
There are two kinds I think. One with a vertical section and another which sits on top of the eaves beam and fills the corrogation
Its a bit tricky but the latter could be slid under if you take out the screws as long as gutter isn’t in the way
They are much better than the foam type
