Decra Oberon takes the traditional styling of split shingle roof tiles and combines with the very highest quality steel to offer an elegant roof covering that is as stylish as it is secure. 

Metrotile presents Decra Oberon – a beautiful lightweight steel roofing solution that blends in perfectly with the natural surrounding environment, while offering unsurpassed protection to the roof, whatever the building. From small timber frame constructions to flat to pitch conversions of large blocks of flats, or even sprawling multi-campus education buildings, Decra Oberon exceeds all other challengers. 

Despite the significant weight reduction of a Decra roof compared to one comprising of ‘traditional’ roof tiles, Decra offers unbeatable protection against vandalism and has been tested in the harshest of weather conditions, from cyclical freeze-thaw testing to withstanding hurricane-level speeds.

Decra Oberon is available in a selection of standard colours, with Bark held in stock and others requiring extra lead time to order. Decra Oberon offers all of the benefits one can expect from Metrotile, from installation to our Forty Year Weatherproof Guarantee and can be installed to a minimum pitch of 15°.

Local Authority Library Refurbishment Irby Metrotile Lightweight Roofing in Vixen Charcoal

Case Study

Irby Library

From its humble beginnings during the early fifties, the current Library at Irby, Wirral was built during the late 60’s at the site of a demolished farmhouse. Loved by the local community with an aesthetic that blends in with the idyllic village surrounding it, the Library, like any other building during its fourth decade, requires routine building maintenance. In the case of Irby Library, it was decided that the current roofing material had run its course and a flat to pitch conversion was required.
