Now manufactured on four continents, and sold in over 70 countries, Decra has become the world’s most popular metal tiling system. The tiles’ lightweight construction makes them easy to handle and install, on pitched or vertical surfaces, and as they can be installed on a lighter roof construction they can significantly reduce overall construction time and cost. As Decra lightweight roof tiles are dry-fixed, installation is not weather dependent, and the secure fixing method eliminates the risk of repair or replacement during the lifetime of the roof, further reducing whole life costs for the building.
