Less is More

Less Timber/Steel Required for Framing

Decra Roof's weight is only 6.6kg per m2, and is approximately 7 times lighter than traditional concrete and clay roof tiles. Hence, creates significantly lesser dead load on to the support framing.

Case study below on a typical roof area of 140 m2 with 30 degree pitch demonstrates the significant cost saving that could benefit the developer (owner) who uses Decra Roofing Systems over traditional concrete or clay roofing systems.
