Hard on the heels of its launch of a satin-finish steel tile, Decra, world pioneers of lightweight roofing solutions, have launched a high-gloss version to UK specifiers. The Elegance tile in high-gloss elegant black uses the same paint technology as Audi engineering and has been produced using a unique four-stage manufacturing process as opposed to the usual two stages. Each tile has been cleaned, dried, painted and baked, with a powder coating on the upper surface as opposed to the traditional Decra granular coating.
Elegance adopts the Decra trend of an additional protective coating on its underside that is unique to the brand and gives it even greater longevity.
Weighting just 5.47kg/mandsup2; that is one ninth lighter than the concrete equivalent, they can be used on minimal roof pitches - down to 10andordm; - as well as for vertical hanging, giving architects and designers a different perspective on the fluidity of steel.
Decra tiles are backed by another first - a unique 30-year guarantee that covers not just the tiles but also the complete weather security of the entire roof.
In addition, they can be backed by the QA+ insurance-backed guarantee for installed systems including materials and labour, again to give specifiers and contractors ultimate peace of mind in today's risk conscious culture.
Easy to handle and quick to install in all weathers, the low-maintenance Decra Elegance high-gloss tile is the latest addition to the comprehensive Decra range - the satin-finish Elegance, pantile Classic, extra-thick Plus, the slate double Stratos, and the clay plain tile double Oberon.
As a member of the global Icopal group, all Decra tiles can be complemented by systems for ventilation, underlays and membranes, eaves protection, warm roof insulated tile support and rainwater.
