Metal Tile Roofing Sheets
Metal Tile roofing sheets are the new generation of roofing materials. Made of high quality roofing steel, the sheets are zinc coated, painted and polyester coated. They are strong, light weight, weather resistant, water-proof. They look so much like clay or concrete tiles, you may be surprised to learn it’s made of steel.
It is the best solution for any project big or small – any home addition or extension, carports, garages, patios, pergolas, gazebos, relocatable buildings, or re-roofing where you need to keep the “tilish” look of your house.
The weight of the steel tiles is around 3.5 – 4 Kg per 1 square meter which makes them one of the lightest roofing materials. Comparing with the concrete tiles (around 40 Kg per 1 square meter) there is a good chance that you could save a lot of money on the frame work. Because the tile sheets a so light in weight you can allow less roof trusses (rafters) to support the roof. Zinc coating class AZ150 is making the roofing sheets rust-proof. The coating is typically covers the steel inside as well as outside.
The installation of the tin tiles is very similar to any other sheet metal roofing like corrugated iron. The battens spacings are 350 mm and that makes the steel tiles strong and easy to install. The tile sheets are appropriate for all kinds of roofs with inclination from 6 deg. That makes them a perfect solution for the projects with a low pitched roof.
