OBP lightweight

Lightweight tiles offer a safer work environment, as transporting and moving heavy concrete is no longer necessary, reducing risk for labourers and smoothing out the installation as a whole.

Britmet Lightweight Roofing tile profiles are 1/7th the weight of traditional, heavy tiles. Due to the lightweight nature of our tiles, we can transport up to 140m² of materials per pallet reducing CO2 emissions dramatically, as only 50m2 of traditional materials can fit on one pallet. In comparison, our products far more cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Furthermore, in 2021, Britmet will recycle over 3 million tonnes of polymers in the manufacturing process of our synthetic slate tile, the Liteslate.

Britmet Lightweight Roofing provides the perfect solution for your conservatories and outbuildings with timber frames because they cannot withhold traditional, heavy roofing materials. Few too many people have fallen victim to irreparable damage to their existing framework as heavy roofing materials were used for the project and caused great strain for the supporting structure.
