IMERYS Roof Tiles, the UK division of IMERYS TC, has now achieved MCS12 approval to meet the multiple demands of the housing sector having developed an innovative BIPV integrated photovoltaic solution.

The IMERYS Roof Tiles PV modules are installed onto industry standard roofing battens at the same time as laying the roof tiles ensuring complete synergy between the two. Therefore, installation is quick and simple for competent roofers.

Each piece weights in at just 7kg, making it 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 Roof Tiles BIPV Modules have a 25 year, 80% minimum performance warranty with the added benefit of a 30 year anticorrosion guarantee on the aluminium frames, including a 30 year watertightness guarantee.

The clay roof tile products from the IMERYS Roof Tiles range can achieve an A+ rating in the Building Research Establishment’s Green Guide to Specification and BES 6001 Responsible sourcing.

This combination with the BES EN 14001 Environmental Management Systems ensure IMERYS Roof Tiles products achieve a low carbon footprint to meet the requirements of BREEAM rating and code 4 and beyond of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

IMERYS is able to support the expanding new build market with innovative 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.
