OUR METILE PROFILE
Tile Gauge and Sheet Lengths
350mm is the standard tile gauge. Gauges can be varied from 275mm to 450mm to suit the roof area and aesthetics. The maximum sheet length is 6 metres. For larger roof areas, this can be increased to 8 metres, subject to agreement with Cladco Technical Department
- 0.7mm is the normal thickness for industrial commercial and domestic applications
- 0.5mm is useful when weight is a major concern, e.g. mobile homes and chalets
Only 10% to 15% of the weight of conventional tiles.
Thickness: 0.5mm Weight: 6kgms/m2
Thickness: 0.7mrn Weight: 8kgms/m2
Thickness: 0.9mrn Weight: 10kgms/m2
The preferred minimum roof pitch is 10 degrees but with care, 5 degrees is possible. Defelction of the supporting structure or surface, could lead to ponding, which should be avoided, especially when low pitches are being considered.
- 0.7mm thick tiles will span twice the tile gauge. The standard span is therefore 700mm
- 0.5mm thick tlles require support at each tile length (gauge)
Cladco Metile may also be fixed vertically, creating a pleasing elevational effect.
