Tilcor’s outstanding performance in extreme Russian Weather

Tilcor, Training, tilcor partners


At Tilcor, we believe it’s vital our distributors know they're with a manufacturer and supplier they can trust. We show this by going the extra mile across the globe for our distributors as they help to demonstrate Tilcor as a high quality and reliable roofing manufacturer.

In this blog, we’re going to take a look at a recent roof install in Siberia, Russia where a Tilcor manager in Poland travelled to the city of Yekaterinburg to carry out installer training. 

The technical manager at Tilcor’s Polish base Artur Melanowicz recently visited Yekaterinburg (also known as Ekaterinburg) to carry out Tilcor installer techniques and sales training for Vertical Group, a Russian distributor company. The install training involved a home which used our Antica tiles, chosen for both aesthetic function and the outstanding security they offer from snow slide - a feature provided by New Zealand natural stone chips.

Tilcor tiles are ideal for the harsh Siberian winters, as they’re designed to withstand snow and ice loading. When exposed to frost or ice there’s no risk or degradation to the tile surface or substrate - the stone chips can hold snow until the moment it melts naturally into the guttering system.

Tilcor available in Russia from Vertical Group

Vertical Group is a wholesale supplier of building and home improvement materials from leading Russian and foreign manufacturers. They operate warehouses throughout Russia including Moscow, Voronezh, Krasnodar and Samara.


Our Antica tiles can eliminate eventual snow slides.
