Tilcor heads to The Big 5 Show in Dubai



Tilcor is excited to be a part of this year’s Big 5 International Building and Construction Show in Dubai.  

The Big 5 Show is the largest construction event in the Middle East, and is a global meeting place for suppliers looking to reach key buyers and distributors in dedicated product sectors. The event was named The Best Trade Exhibition Over 10,000sqm Gross at The Middle East Event & Exhibition Award show 2017.  

Tilcor is excited for this great opportunity to showcase our high-performance roofing products to the Middle Eastern market. We’re looking forward to connecting with new distributors and key buyers.

Why metal tile roofing?  

Tilcor’s metal tile roofs are of high demand due to properties that are:   

  • lighter than a concrete or clay tile roof
  • more durable than an asphalt shingle roof
  • easier to handle than long-run corrugate sheets
  • the most cost effective roof for transportation that provides the lowest carbon footprint of any roof on the market.


Tilcor’s metal tile roofs have the most extensive choice of profiles, styles and colour options. Our research and development in the design process ensures every product is manufactured in New Zealand to the highest quality with exceptional durability and strength.

Metal tile is attractive to buyers for its long term durability and longevity by being wind, hail and fire resistant. Our tile’s are engineered to interlock and overlap in order to resist wind lifting and keep out the harsh elements. We employ modern manufacturing techniques that enhance this durability and give customers a product intended to last a lifetime.  

We are very much at the forefront of improvements in paint technology. This involves the move from galvanized (zinc coated) to Zincalum, a protective steel finished with natural stone chips to provide a significantly longer life. Made by New Zealand Steel this technology provides robust roofing that will withstand the harshest environments.

Metal tile roofing for the Middle East

Tilcor products have natural cooling properties which we know will be attractive to buyers in the Middle East. Stone coated steel tiles are combined with an insulated foil wrap that help to reduce heat, perfect for enduring hot Middle Eastern summers.  

Grounded in the Auckland roofing scene since the mid 1900’s, Tilcor Roofing Systems are 100% made in New Zealand. We’re thrilled to be bringing our roofing systems to the Middle East at the Big 5 Show, and already have plans to return again in 2018.
