Made from the highest quality materials

Made from highly regarded pure steel and the highest quality stone, our ISO 9001 and 14001 manufacturing facility, upholds the highest standards from product sourcing, through manufacturing to delivery of materials and beyond.

The steel is coated with aluminium-zinc, combining the corrosion protection of aluminium with the sacrificial protection of zinc to create an alloy that's ideal for roofing and with a service life that far exceeds galvanised products and other roofing materials.

Our tiles are coated / painted once they have been pressed and formed. This ensures that the paint doesn't fracture or crack during the forming processes. Our tiles go through an extensive Quality Assurance process and our coating technology makes for the extremely long serviceable life.



Installed by experts

With Metrotile we go above and beyond to make sure our authorised installers are trained to our standards. This includes unique on-site training and assessment of roofing contractors out in the field to make sure that they have the skills and understanding required to install a Metrotile roof.


At Metrotile, we are always looking for a better way of doing things, this quest has led to several game changing innovations.

Ultimate style with the concealed fastening of our iPanel range

The iPanel is an interlocking, hidden fastener panel. With the fasteners completely concealed there is no threat of water coming in through the fastener holes and there are no visible fastenings on the tile making for a more streamlined appearance.

Integrated Vents

Ventilation is an important part of any home, whether it be for bathrooms or kitchens, or for roof space ventilations, more and more people are look towards better solutions. Traditionally installing a vent meant penetrating the roof structure, increasing this risk of leaks. To avoid such risks and to improve the overall aesthetic of a home, we have developed a range of vents that integrate with our roofing system, avoiding the need for roof penetrations.

Environmental Benefits


We take the environmental responsibilities seriously and focus on our operation activities to improve energy efficiency and sustainability in the building industry. Metrotile Panels are made from the most recycled building material in the world, steel. Steel is infinitely recyclable so unlike other roofing products it will continue to be reused over and over again. Making a Metrotile roof one of the most sustainable roofing options available.

More about sustainability

Best thermal performance and energy efficiency

Metrotile roofs are known as “cool roofs”. This means that by reducing the need for air-conditioning they save you money on energy bills. Metrotile roofing products are designed to be elevated from the roof deck which creates a natural air flow referred to as “Above Sheathing Ventilation”(ASV). This ventilation prevents heat gain in summer. In addition to proper attic insulation, this can help lower electric costs associated with cooling. The combination between our steel panels and ASV have seen customers achieve 30% reductions in energy bills in summer for cooling.

Profiles and colors perfectly suited to European buildings

Our profiles have been inspired by the roofs that shaped the world. With our range of profiles and colours we are sure to have something to deliver for your vision. Equally at home with a heritage look or contemporary new builds.
