Decra came to the UK on 24th February 1977, meaning this year the company will be celebrating 40 years of roofing innovation and success across residential and commercial markets.
Key to the popularity of Decra tiles is the lightweight design and unique fixing method. The galvanised steel tiles are offered in a range of colours and finishes to create the effect of traditional concrete, clay or slate, but require less installation time due to being dry fixed. Pioneers in the roofing market, Decra was the first product of its kind and has since continued to set a precedent for high quality systems with its recent launch – Decra Noxite.
Icopal recognised the continued demand from the construction industry for guidance on how it can reduce the environmental impact of their projects and make a positive contribution to the surrounding areas. It introduced the flat roofing membrane, Noxite, in 2010. Since then, Noxite has been installed on many sites and continues to convert NOx pollution into harmless nitrates, as validated by the BBA (British Board of Agrément). Then in 2016 Noxite and Decra combined forces to release Decra Noxite - combining the durability and lightweight design of the popular Decra Classic tile with the de-polluting technology of the Noxite membrane.
Mike Leigh, Decra Sales Director at Icopal, said: “Our development team constantly assesses the design and performance needs for buildings across the residential, public and commercial sectors - and because of this, Decra is able to adapt to the changing demands and priorities of the industry, and this plays a big part in its continued success.”
