A leading Australian roofing company, Monier Roofing offers a comprehensive range of roof tiles in a versatile choice of profiles, colours and materials. Be it terracotta, concrete or composite, each material brings its own unique advantages to the application.
Terracotta – Handcrafted and non-fading
Handcrafted from clay, terracotta roof tiles offer a distinct richness and depth of colour that will never fade, ensuring the beauty, value and integrity of the home is preserved for years. An ancient building material, terracotta is enduring – the 8th Wonder of the World, The Terracotta Army in China, which is over 2000 years old and immaculately preserved, is a standing example of the material’s proven heritage.
Terracotta roof tiles also deliver excellent thermal properties, breathability, mould protection, noise control, colour longevity, durability and low maintenance.
Concrete – Gets stronger with age
Considered the most economical and durable roofing material on the market, concrete tiles, similar to concrete bridges and structural elements of buildings, only get stronger with age.
Concrete tiles are known for their colour longevity and flexibility. Available in one of the widest ranges of colours and profiles, concrete tiles can be updated, when required, with a simple re-coat. Monier also offers various colour technologies such as CAT Colour, C-LOC and Colour Through Technology for the tiles, to help enhance the look, beauty and re-sale value of the home.
CAT Colour is Monier’s standard colour technology that will outperform metal by four times and retain its colour for longer.
C-LOC or Colour Lock Technology retains its colour for even longer, is less resistant to gloss fade, and will outperform metal by eight times.
Colour Through Technology is a unique process that bakes the colour through the tile instead of a mere coating on top. Combine Colour Through with C-LOC to create a more durable tile.
Elemental Series – Composite and lightweight
The Monier Elemental Series is a contemporary, innovative and streamlined range of lightweight low pitch roofing products made from a composite material to withstand all elements.
The Elemental Series includes the Large Ultra Panel (1500 x 750), the unique Square Panel (750x750) and a modern take on the classic slate and shingle using the composite material.
Manufactured from an advanced fibre reinforced engineered composite material originally developed for the aerospace and automotive industries, the Elemental Series has been tested by the CSIRO to Australian Building Standards (AS 4046), and is UV-resistant.
The Composite Lightweight roof tile is five times lighter than regular tiles, remains dent-resistant in a hailstorm, is structurally strong and has a better strength-to-weight ratio than metal. Key benefits also include ability to achieve 10° pitch; resistance to rust or corrosion in marine or coastal environments; a unique exfoliated stone finish; and an ultra-modern contemporary appearance that can withstand harsh elements.
Monier offers a 50-year warranty on their concrete and terracotta roof tiles, and a 30-year structural guarantee on their Elemental Composite Lightweight range.
