IMERYS is a world leader in mineral specialties for industry. IMERYS ROOF TILES is the UK division of IMERYS TC, which has over 200 years of experience in the manufacture of clay roof tiles.

Having developed a BIPV integrated photovoltaic solution, IMERYS has now achieved MCS12 approval to meet the multiple demands of the housing sector. Find out more in the latest issue of ABC+D magazine.

The IMERYS PV modules are installed onto industry standard roofing battens at the same time as laying the roof tiles ensuring complete synergy between the two. This makes for a quick and straightforward installation by a competent roofer.

Each piece weighs in at only 7kg, making them easy to handle and helping reduce the roof loading weight by over 30kg/m2. Therefore, no additional live or dead load structural calculations are required.

All IMERYS BIPV Modules have a 25-year, 80% minimum performance warranty with the added benefit of a 30-year anti-corrosion guarantee on the aluminium frames, including a 30-year watertightness guarantee.

This industry-leading triple guarantee provides complete peace of mind for the whole roof when combining the company’s roof tiles, which themselves have a comprehensive 30-year durability guarantee. It is literally fit and forget – IMERYS will always be there to support you.

Clay roof tile products from the IMERYS range have excellent environmental credentials and can achieve an A+ rating in the Building Research Establishment’s (BRE) Green Guide to Specification and BES 60001 Responsible Souring.

This combination, with IMERYS’ BES EN 14001 Environmental Management Systems, ensures the company’s products achieve a low carbon footprint to meet the requirements of BREEAM rating and Code 4 and beyond of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Due to the company’s large production capacity and ex-stock availability via its national network of stockists, IMERYS is able to support the expanding new build market with PV solutions with attractive roof integrated systems that are maintenance-free, offering a market-leading combination guarantee/warranty.

NBS fixing specifications are also provided along with project assessment and design support.
