Metrotile: Ideal for Public Sector Building Projects

charcoal slate roofing

As we enter 2012, Metrotile Lightweight Steel roofing continues to enhance its reputation as a durable, sustainable roofing solution that is ideal for any application due to a combination of unmatched benefits and stunning aesthetics. The use of the highest quality Drawing Grade 3 steel with an elegant stone-coated finish means you can have a truly modern material adorn your rooftop without compromising aesthetic appeal.

Metrotile Lightweight Steel Roofing could be found upon many public sector building projects, from homes in Glasgow and Tyneside to our largest single project yet: The Priory Lincoln Academies. Metrotile was chosen for each building because of the traditional material-beating benefits available. Metrotile profiles are up to seven times lighter than traditional equivalents and this lightweight design enables a rapid installation, lower transportation costs and reduced impact on both the building’s frame and foundations, while matching the aesthetics of traditional materials, such as clay or slate.

The benefits continue with full recyclability, excellent vandal resistance (including the option to specify the double-thick .900mm profiles for extra security) and a long product life, backed up by an industry-leading forty year guarantee. A full range of bespoke accessories, including ventilation and integrated Photovoltaic options is also available and our versatile Shingle profile doubles as a stunning vertical cladding solution, an excellent way to rejuvenate homes with mansard roofs such as Cornish Units such as those refreshed by Metrotile in Blaenau, Gwent.
