Experiencing the vast variety of textures and colours that our roof tiles provide up close, can guide you in the decision making process when selecting roof coverings. Our efficient sample service can help you in this process.
Ecologic has a unique granule finish, using surface layers of granule and cement slurry coatings combined with titanium dioxide (Ti02). This coating works as a photo-catalyst stimulated by sunlight to remove both forms of nitrogen oxide (NOx) that form nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and nitric oxide (NO). These can cause respiratory problems and contribute to smog in built-up areas.
The NOx reacts with the TiO2 and sunlight to produce nitrates which are harmlessly washed from the surface of the tile by rain.
In effect, a roof covered in Ecologic tiles acts as a giant air purifier removing atmospheric pollution.
Based on the popular Ludlow Major profile, Ecologic can achieve an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification. In addition, compliance with the BES 6001 framework standard for Responsible Sourcing means that projects using EcoLogic can achieve extra credits under the BREEAM family of environmental assessment schemes.
