Co-engineering helps DACHPOLL ensure roofing tiles respect updated Euronorm24 March 2022
Steel roofing and cladding materials are among the most cost-efficient solutions available on the construction market today. As well as being light and easy to handle, these products are quick to assemble, and they are available in a wide range of shapes and colours to suit almost any built environment. Due to the updated Euronorm (EN 508-1) for self-supporting roofing and cladding sheets that came into force in October 2021, ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products has been helping the makers of profiling machines ensure their systems meet the new standard.Product news
As metallic tiles are becoming more and more popular for residential roofing applications - new or renovated - all over Europe, ArcelorMittal Europe proposes a complete range of solutions for cold formed organic steel sheets available in a wide range of colours and textures, which offer a durable, sustainable, and innovative alternative to ceramic tile or slate roofing.
In terms of durability, aesthetics, and quality, steel can easily measure up to other materials 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 resistant - and not sensitive to weathering conditions and climate - prepainted coated steel tiles offer many advantages of organic coated products in construction applications.
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, they simplify the process of building the roof frame considerably.
Ideal for covering complex shapes, some of the advantages of tile panels include:
• A sophisticated aesthetic appearance
• Durability and corrosion resistance
• Maximum water tightness
