Having a fire rating certificate is essential for us here at LightWeight Tiles Ltd. We take a lot of pride and care in our LightWeight Roofing System. So, having these tests carried out give us that genuine belief in our products.

We have had a few different tests completed on our roofing system such as wind, hail, ice and water. They were also tested for earthquakes.

The outcomes for these were:

Wind –  LightWeight Tiles Roofing System can uphold wind of up to 120mph.

Hail resistant- Class 4 impact resistant

Snow/Ice and water – Freeze/ thaw resistant, no risk to rust or water penetration at fixing.  

The earthquake testing outcome stated that they were lightweight and added shear strength- meaning no injury or cuts were obtained.

These test outcomes can be provided to yourself if needed or you can download the technical data sheet from our downloads folder.

We believe in our products and the capability of them through severe weather conditions which is why we guarantee them for 25 years.

 

If you would like any more information, then please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are happy to provide you with certificates and reports if necessary.

 

 

I just wanted to say how good your product was when I used it recently .
I took down an old wooden conservatory and replaced it with a brick one that had a wooden roof . The front of the conservatory roof sat on a wall plate on top of the French door frame and I didn’t want the weight of concrete tiles on top of that,so I researched and found your product.
The videos of how the product was made and installed and how durable they were was a deciding factor in me choosing yourself over other similar product I had seen.
I have to say the service from the lady who took the order to the prompt delivery was 1st class and friendly , and the price was a lot less than I had thought was going to be .
The product itself was top quality and installation was as simple as it could be with everything fitting together without any problems and the verge trims finished it off fantastically and all the people who have seen it have commented on how good it looks .
I have been a building site manager for 25 years plus so have a good idea of things and how they should work and I have to say I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use your product again.
So well done for developing such a great product and wishing your company every success in the future.

Many thanks
