Tiles, sheets and semi-sheets

MCR and FCR Elements exist in three sizes: tiles, sheets and semi-sheets, which may be coloured according to your taste.

Tiles

The dimension of the tiles can be adapted to the local needs. So far the FCR tiles produced all over the world are mostly formed as pantiles or roman tiles of 25 cm by 50 cm and 6 mm thickness (up to 10 mm for high risk areas). The handling of the tiles is easy since their weight is only 2 kg. Because they are brittle like any clay or concrete product, they must be handled with the same care as a clay tile.

Semi-sheets

The semi-sheets are designed to improve the efficiency of production output and to ease the installation on the roof. So far semi-sheets have a size of 60 cm by 60 cm. Other shapes and sizes may occur in the near future.

Sheets

The dimension of the sheets vary between 50 to X0 cm width by I ()() cm length and 10 mm thickness. In some cases the sheets may be a useful alternative to the tiles provided they are produced, transported and installed with great care.

Tiles or sheets

In most cases however the Fibre Concrete tiles or semi-sheets will be the more appropriate product and cause less problems than the Fibre Concrete sheets.
