CF Shingle Makes Stone Coated Steel Install Faster, Easier

THE DESIGN BEHIND TILCOR’S CF SHINGLE 

The design of Tilcor’s CF Shingle profiles means that they are a genuine concealed fastening roofing system. This combined with an innovative interlocking Secure Lock (SL) lap system results in a weathertight roof that can be installed direct-to-deck. Although some products might claim their fastening systems aren’t visible, they’re still exposed to the elements and subject to deterioration.

As you can see in the image, the back-fastening tab of each panel folds over itself, giving strength and a secure area to fasten the panels. The next panel then conceals the fasteners to ensure they’re protected from the weather.

The innovative, interlocking SL lap system uses S-Lock technology. Recent test results prove that the 8.9cm side lap and long back-fastening tabs ensure water tightness and can withstand wind loads up to 120MPH.

THE FASTEST AND EASIEST ROOF TO INSTALL

Here are just a few stand-out reasons why our CF stone-coated steel panel system is the most efficient system to install.

  • No bend accessories are prefabricated - the accessories are prefabricated without bending up or folding, making for an easier installation and a lot of time saved.
  • The CF panels are installed direct-to-deck - fixing from right to left with vertical fixing by air-gun.
  • The system is designed to be installed without bending and can be cut on the roof with a circular saw
  • The CF Shingle is only 20 panels per square, while other shingles are on average 23.8 panels per square. This is approximately 19% fewer panels and nails, which means our CF Shingle is 19% faster to install if using the same screws, and even faster if using nails.
