Monartile Supa R Roofing Underlay
MonarTile Supa-R is a high performance undertile lining ideal for small and large projects in weather exposed sites. MonarTile Supa-R has a weight of 150 g/m² and available in 1 x 50 m roll size.
MonarTile Supa-R is manufactured from a polypropylene (pp) hydrophilic spun bond with a strong reinforcing grid encapsulated with a polyethylene (PE) top coating layer. Designed for use over raftered and boarded roofs in exposed sites where greater mechanical performance is required due to wind uplift. The underside of the membrane will hold condensate and thereby prevent the “drip-effect” onto insulation material.

Wind Uplift Resistance
One of the functions of an roof tile underlay is to reduce the wind load, generated under wind gusts, that acts on the underside of the roof slates or tiles.
This issue is addressed in the BS5534 Code of Practice for Slating and Tiling. The selection of the correct underlay is dependent on the exposure of the roof to wind uplift, the type of roof construction specified and roof tile batten gauge. It may also be necessary to seal the lap of underlay.
