Roofing maker Decra Roof Systems has launched a lightweight steel roof tile for the modular building industry, called the Elegance tile.

Comprising a galvanized steel core, with a multi-layered protective coating and granular finish, the tile offers the appearance of a traditional clay or concrete tile but with better performance characteristics, according to the company. The tile is available in three satin finishes and a high-gloss black and can be transported in situ in a building’s roof. The company says that the tiles are easy to handle, fast to install, exceptionally durable, low maintenance and 66% cheaper than other roofing systems, based on whole-life costing.
