Shatterproof, vandal and wind resistant, Powertekk steel roof tiles are suitable for all types of domestic or commercial buildings – particularly in exposed areas. Their traditional appearance makes them virtually indistinguishable from clay or concrete equivalents and life expectancy is around 70 years. Their impact and vandal resistance makes them particularly suitable for sporting facilities, schools and community buildings. Their light weight also makes them suitable for use on prefabricated and portable buildings, or in the refurbishment of old pitched roofs where the construction is too frail for heavier replacements.
Powertekk tiles can be installed on all types of roof construction including pitched roofs between 90º and 10º. They are fitted to battens using nails or screws with practised installers often taking less than half the time it takes to fit traditional tiles. Powertekk weighs just 5.0 kg/m2 – 7.7 kg/m2, depending on which of the three designs are chosen.
In new build projects, the low weight of the tiles can also lead to savings on the size of the building foundations.
