Icopal has introduced an enhanced model of the classic Decra tile, which has been designed with anti-corrosive properties to protect roof systems on the Shetland Islands.

On the Shetland Islands, roof tiles often corrode before the end of manufacturers’ warranties. Shetland residents suffer the consequences of living in the UK’s most corrosive area, frequently having to replace their roof systems.

‘The Shetland Tile’ has been developed to tackle this. The modified eaves tile has been specifically designed to withstand the low temperatures and corrosive salt spray, which are associated with the Shetland Islands.

Decra’s Shetland-based customers have been offered the opportunity to replace their ageing tiles with an upgrade to Icopal’s new system.

Corrosion-free Decra tiles

Manufactured with aluminium and zinc galvanised steel, the new tiles have been designed to replicate the appearance of slate or concrete roof tiles. A metal core construction offers weather security.

The tiles, which also offer BS 5534 compliance, are dry fixed throughout and contoured to provide an interlocking roof covering.

The new design adds a double coat of acrylic and epoxy base coat to the underside of a Decra roof system. The tiles are baked to ensure greater durability, in addition to offering resistance to moss.
