The brand-new fully automated facility based at the Company’s Cadeby precast site near Nuneaton in Leicestershire, has the capacity to produce 60 million roof tiles per annum and is 100% powered by solar panels.
Concrete tiles together with complementary accessories are all designed and tested to British Standard BS5534 and compliant with NHBC construction guidelines.
Jonathan Pratt, FP McCann’s National Roof Tile Manager said: “On the launch of our premium concrete roof tile range, we will guarantee the highest standards of quality whilst also providing the market with a low-cost solution to all their pitched roofing requirements.
“Following thorough testing for wind uplift and water resistance, FP McCann can confidently confirm that all three tile formats will be installable to a 17.5 degree pitch whilst maintaining integrity and water tightness when installed and fixed to BS5534 standards.
“As part of our extensive package, we also have the “Multi-Ridge” concrete tile which can be fixed on both the ridge and hip of the roof. This universal ridge tile can be used with both the Thin Flat Tiles and the Seawave Tile and bonded using FP McCann’s own “FastDry Fix” systems, or alternatively, bedded with FP McCann Roof Tile Bedding Mortar in accordance with BS5534.
FP McCann Concrete Roof Tile products are now available on a lead time as short as 3-5 days.
