Metrotile registered with LABC
Metrotile has become LABC registered for our roofing profiles. This means we offer a consistent product that is tested by the Local Authority Building Control and exceeds the standards set, enabling us to provide a better service to all specifiers, installers, developers and building control surveyors.
The LABC represents all local authority and compliance in England, Wales and Scotland. A company registered with the scheme proves that they meet industry-led standards. Not only this, but a registered product is more likely to be accepted by all local authorities, can improve the speed and ease of the building control process and guarantee easier warranty approval.
The LABC carried out assessments on Metrotile’s profiles, testing its wind loading, moisture penetration, corrosion resistance and surface spread of flame. They also examine starter courses, abutment tiles, ridge tiles, barge closers, tile vents, soil and vent outlets and extractor fan outlets for a comprehensive outlook on the product.
LABC found Metrotile’s products to be internationally compliant for every test, citing that the tiles “resist high rain and hail exposure and also resist corrosion due to salt exposure in marine locations”. The system was found to “offer protection from the most severe UV exposure and all these elements are backed by a 40 year weatherproof guarantee”. The LABC confirmed that Metrotile’s products are built to last, and can offer building protection from wind, fire and the weather elements.
Combined with our BBA approval and ISO accreditation, Metrotile continue to exceed in building certifications.
