Metrotile CF Shake
Published: 20 May 2021

Metrotile is a world-leader in concealed fastening roof systems. Extensive research and development in the design process ensure the fully ‘concealed fastening’ system protects all fastening elements, creating a more streamlined appearance and reducing the risk of water ingress.

Metrotile’s CF Shake tile features a deep-ribbed profile designed to enhance the shadow lines and create visual contrast. This style is proving popular for architecturally designed homes and like, all of Metrotile’s tiles, it has been appraised by BRANZ to meet or exceed the New Zealand building code.

Made from the highest quality raw materials using New Zealand Zincalume Steel ensures the durability and strength is second to none. CF Shake tiles and accompanying roofing accessories are engineered to interlock and overlap to resist wind uplift and protect against the elements. At less than 7.5kg/m2, a Metrotile roof is a ‘Lightweight Roofing System’, so considerable cost savings can be achieved during new construction along with being the perfect replacement for an existing roof.

Metrotile’s textured finish provides added protection by embedding natural stone granules in an acrylic base-coat. A final clear acrylic over-glaze is applied before being oven cured at 1200 C. This extremely durable UV-resistant coating enables Metrotile roofing products to withstand the harshest environments around the world.

Metrotile is ISO 9001 accredited and has international tests reports, appraisals and field results confirm products are, earthquake safe, fire resistant and able to withstand hurricane force winds of up to 190kph. A Metrotile roof will not only safeguard your investment but will also give you complete peace of mind because it’s backed by a Metrotile Warranty.
