ArcelorMittal Europe proposes a complete range of solutions for pre-formed steel sheets, available in a wide range of colours and textures, which offers an innovative alternative to traditional tile or slate roofing.
In terms of aesthetic quality, steel can easily measure up to tiles or slate for roofing.
The wide choice of suitable paints and the intrinsic qualities of the coated steel make it possible to produce traditional roof element shapes, using demanding profiling and deep drawing processes. Decorative, durable and strong, prepainted coated metal tiles offer the many advantages of organic coated products in construction applications. From a distance, they are indistinguishable from terracotta, slate or cement roof tiles.
They can be installed quickly and easily, and because they are lighter than ordinary tiles, less material is required. Offering a high degree of toughness, they enhance the quality of the roof and increase its lifespan in environments exposed to inclement weather. Quicker installation means increased productivity and lower labour costs.
The structural rigidity of steel and the production techniques available allow architects and roofing contractors to use very long sections, called tile panels. These are lightweight, yet very strong, thus considerably simplifying the process of building the roof frame.
The advantages of tile panels:
- Variety of colours and surface finishes
- Variety of drawing sections
- Resistance to strong gusts of wind
- Simplicity and lightness of the structure.
