Seminar, by Metrotile UK Ltd
Practical advice and guidance on roofing, vandalism and burglary problems and solutions. Covers enhanced security, profile choices, whole life costs, health and safety, environmental and enhanced eco points, and guarantees.

Metrotile UK supplies lightweight steel roofing systems to the UK and Irish markets, as part of an international success story dating back more than 30 years. Metrotile systems and accessories can be found on rooftops in over 60 countries worldwide. By using steel as the base material, profiles can be pressed much thinner than traditional slate or clay tiles. The sheer strength of steel means that a Metrotile roof is more durable, and incredibly secure. Suitable for pitched roofs from 10 to 90 degrees for vertical cladding, Metrotile roofs provide all the characteristics of traditional pitched roof coverings but are seven times lighter than traditional concrete and clay tiles. Additionally, they are resistant to object impact and foot traffic, and wind speeds of up to 120mph. Available in a variety of colours, Metrotile profiles come with a 40-year weatherproof guarantee.
