Forticrete will be showcasing its innovative range of precision engineered concrete building products at the Build Show, which is part of UK Construction Week (9 – 11 October).
Amongst the products on show at Stand B642 will be its Low Pitched Roof Window System and SL8® large format roof tile.
Forticrete’s low pitch roof window system has been specifically developed to enable roof windows to be installed at pitches as low as 10° – much lower than many other systems, when used with Forticrete’s Centurion roof tile.
Designed with single storey extensions primarily in mind, the revolutionary system includes a patented two-piece tray drainage flow system.
This stops water pooling and leaking by collecting water running under the tiles, dispersing it and controlling its flow into the guttering with no overshoot.
The SL8 roof tile is another innovation, intended to meet the increasing demands of the roofing market.
With just eight tiles per square metre needed, it provides more extensive coverage, with roughly 20% less tiles needed per roof. It also has the visual characteristics of natural slate, with benefits no other interlocking tile can match.
John Lambert, MD of Forticrete, says the Build Show will provide an ideal opportunity to discover Forticrete’s product range.
“With well documented waiting times for popular building products, and margins being squeezed, we’re actively encouraging everybody in the supply chain to look at the alternatives, such as products made from concrete,” he said.
“Our precision engineered range includes products which are revolutionary in design and meet the growing demands of the construction sector.
“By considering materials that are sustainable, durable and have a more competitive price point, it provides a win-win for everyone in the supply chain.”
Forticrete, part of Ibstock plc, is a leading manufacturer of concrete roof tiles, architectural masonry and walling and cast stone.
