Our lightweight, eco-friendly roofing system is truly unique, the tiles slot together and are laid in a similar way to traditional tiles.This tile is unique in that it is only available in the Pan Tile format. This is because it is generally used with our other Granulated or un-granulated tiles.
These un-granulated, Opaque tiles have a smooth finish which have all of the same, great, properties as our budget tiles but in addition they will allow approximately 50% of light through them. This makes the lightweight, Opaque Tile ideal for using in conjunction with our budget tile to allow natural light into a building. They can also be used for a long term replacement for corrugated roofing sheets on car ports, basic lean to roofs and other garden buildings.
These Opaque tiles are not clear in colour, they have a white appearance which aids light reflection.
Our tiles are quick and easy to install and previous Roofing experience is not essential. See our Installation Guidelines for more info.
“ We wanted a covered patio area and discovered the website. The tiles are light and were put up in just a few hours compared with a couple of days for concrete tiles. The infrastructure is a lot lighter and the whole project was completed far quicker than if we had used conventional tiles.
Result, very noticeable reduction in solar heating on sunny days, retains heat better when heated on cool days, and is much quieter, rain and road noise greatly reduced. Had a bit of a struggle with the Ubiflex, found it to be ‘floppier’ than traditional lead, more difficult to feed a long length into slot cut in mortar. Once in place, Ubiflex sealants worked well, and it was easy to mould the flashing to fit the tiles.”
