Leading building products manufacturer Boral Roofing introduces innovative metallic-finish terracotta flat roof tiles.
The flat shingle profile offers a roofing solution for many architectural styles, as well as various exterior design elements including walls. Recommended for architects and designers seeking lustrous and metallic building materials, the two new Shingle Metallics roof tiles are available in ‘Meteor’ dark grey and ‘Galaxy’ black with a high quality, kiln-fired glaze.
Well received by architects who embrace contemporary building materials, Boral Shingle Metallics add an ultra-modern finish to homes with their earthy, mineral effect.
According to Charlie Condo, general manager, Boral Roofing and Masonry East, the addition of Metallics to the Boral terracotta shingles range brings innovation to the roofing market. The Shingle Metallics address a major demand in the market from designers and architects for a more modern style, providing an alternative profile and glaze effect to tiles currently available.
He explains that terracotta is a high quality roofing material, with the roof tiles crafted from prepared natural clays and kiln fired to extreme temperatures to provide exceptional strength, high colour retention and minimal maintenance.
The new Shingle Metallics terracotta roof tiles from Boral can deliver a sophisticated finish to cutting-edge contemporary home designs, or modern finishes to classical dwellings being updated.
Manufactured to Australian Standards (AS2049), Boral roof tiles can safely channel rainwater into grey water tanks. Being salt-safe and frost resistant, these roof tiles are ideal for projects from the coast to the mountains.
