Decra Roofs Technical Features


 

Zincalume®


The base steel Zincalume® has superior long term corrosion resistance. The combination of the sacrificial protection of zinc with the barrier protection of the aluminium provides superior performance to galvanised coatings in almost all environments. This all adds up to a significantly longer service life.

Lightweight Advantages


Lightweight Advantages 6.4kg/m², Decra Classic Tiles make up one of the lightest roofs available. Less weight on the roof means less stress on the sub-structure. In many cases substantial savings can be made as there is no need for expensive reinforcing of the sub-structure. Being light in weight, Decra Roofing Tiles are easily handled, and installation is completed in a short time.


Wind Uplift


Decra Roofing has a unique horizontal fixing system. Because each panel is fixed horizontally to roof battens, wind shear is virtually eliminated. Most other roofing products relay on vertical fixing methods that are prone to lifting in high winds.


Over top of Concrete


Concrete is widely used around the world for roofing construction, it is generally used due to the low cost or lack of timber. The disadvantages of concrete include poor weather proofing, unattractive appearance and inferior thermal insulation.

Steel Battens


Steel battens are an attractive lower cost alternative to timber battens. Decra Roofing has developed specific techniques to ensure our tiles can be used equally with either steel or timber battens. Decra Roofing tiles can be fixed directly to steel substructures totally eliminating the use of timber. One of the many benefits of steel battens and tiles is the increase in resistance to fire.
