Global Roofing Solutions: Arma-Tile and Arma-Shake

A strong, attractive light weight pressed metal roof tile with either an acrylic grit finish or a natural stone coat finish, the Arma-Tile™ simulates the well-known Double Roman cement tile while the Arma-Shake™ has a pleasing wooden shake look. Its light weight significantly reduces the quantity of timber required in the support structure and provides for easy installation. These low maintenance, durable tiles are secure, tamper proof, water tight and impact resistant.

Suitable for either new roofs or re-roofing over old sheets, the range is complemented by a full selection of accessories such as ridges, hips, valleys, flashings and fixings.  It is ideal for residential, light commercial and institutional roofing.

Arma-Tile™ tiles are coated in a fungus-resistant specially formulated durable acrylic paint with a natural grit-textured finish. The tiles are available in seven different colours – burgundy, black, blue, bronze, green, terracotta and charcoal. Non-standard colours may be requested but are subject to minimum orders.

The acrylic coating can withstand high ultra-violet levels and the most adverse weather conditions including pelting rain and hailstorms. The elasticity of the coating also prevents chipping and cracking in these types of weather conditions.

In order to break up the line of joints visible on the roof and to enhance the aesthetic appearance, it is recommended that the tiles follow a staggered pattern when installed.

Two variations of the tile profile are offered:

  • Arma-Tile™ – 1550 x 364 mm cover
  • Arma-Shake™  – 1470 x 364 mm cover

Both tile profiles should ideally be used on roof pitches of 15 degrees and higher, not requiring an underlay. Roofs with pitches between 12 and 15 degrees need to be installed with an SABS approved underlay.

Arma-Tile™ lightweight metal roof tiles are quick and easy to install whilst providing above average cost effectiveness. Substantial savings on the cost of timber required for new structures can be realised when compared to other roofing products.

Stringent quality tests and the ISO 9001:2008 quality management systems ensure that an environmentally friendly roofing product of exceptional watertightness, as well as excellent thermal and acoustic properties, is supplied.
