Roof tiles offer a wide variety of features that deliver unparalleled options for builders and architects. The Australian Roofing Tile Association has constructed numerous downloadable guides ready made for our members and influencers in the industry.
This technical guide offers a description of the physical properties that directly affect the performance of roof tiles within the Australian environment.
Due to the density of concrete and terracotta, roof tiles offer greater sound insulation properties than other roofing options.
ARTA has issued a technical guide that provides information on Bushfire Attack Levels (BALs) as well as relevant roof tile construction details that will be required of each BAL category.
Following an exhaustive testing program, tiled roof systems have been given the all-clear for use in new construction in high-risk bushfire zones.
