In Stock profile

This striking profile design offers a hand-split wooden shingle effect that brings elegant aesthetics to any rooftop.

The inspiration for the Vixen is to be found in the uniqueness of the ancient Viking architectural style. Used in building construction, their homes and other edifices were built entirely from wood, onto which small roof shingles were then applied extensively.

The hand-split wood pattern imparts an individual and rustic character to each building.

Metrotile Vixen is available in five standard colours, or the colour of your choice (subject to extra lead/stock time). Vixen offers the same benefits from installation to our Forty Year Weatherproof Guarantee and can be installed to a minimum pitch of 12°. It is the ideal profile for those looking for an elegant, highly secure and rapidly installed roofing solution.

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.

Case Study

Priory Academies, Lincoln

Initially three separate educational sites, LSST, Witham and City of Lincoln College (incorporating The Ruskin Academy) merged together to create the Priory Federation of Academies. Overseen by Balfour Beatty, the combination of new build and refurbishment projects is one of the final government Building Schools for the Future programs and also the largest single project Metrotile UK has been involved with so far. Once completed, the various roofs of the Priory Academies will feature over 50,000 Metrotile tiles in total.
