PRESSED METAL TILES
Metal tiles, shingles and shake panels are press formed to provide a variety of shapes resembling clay tiles and wooden shingles or shakes. They are interlocked or overlapped together laterally and longitudinally and are clipped or fastened to timber or steel battens.
The metal used for the manufacture of metal tiles, shingles and shakes is typically G300 grade zinc/aluminium alloy-coated mild steel.
Pressed metal tiles made from steel invariably have an additional protective coating applied over the metallic coated steel. An alternative coating can be provided by applying crushed stone or ceramic granules to the base metallic coated steel and attached by an adhesive coating. In this case a clear acrylic coat is normally applied on top of the stone coating. These coatings give protection to the metallic coated steel base, as well as providing a decorative finish.
Pressed metal tiles are suitable for roof pitches from 12 degrees.
The cost is from $55 per meter square.
