CSR Roofing, the makers of Monier and Wunderlich roof tiles, has created the Monier Horizon roof tile - a flat concrete shingle, produced in its state of the art production facilities located throughout Australia.
Horizon’s flat surface provides the roof with a streamlined finish suited to contemporary home designs. Its clean architectural lines are enhanced by the use of A-Line ridging, which aligns ridge capping end-to-end for a modern, uncluttered finish.
The performance of Horizon is second to none. It is impervious to salt air, making it ideal for coastal locations. Horizon’s technical specifications meet the stringent requirements of AS 4046.3.* The density of the Horizon roof tile provides superior thermal and noise insulation relative to other roofing materials.
Australian building regulations increasingly require the use of rainwater tanks. Horizon roof tiles are manufactured to ensure that water run off from the roof is tank water safe. The Monier 50 Year Performance Guarantee provides further peace of mind that Horizon will remain structurally sound for a minimum of 50 years.
Developed to meet today’s trends in colour scheming, Horizon is available in a palette of twelve modern and fashionable colours which span the colour spectrum. From its fresh selection of light colours to versatile greys and earthy tones, the Horizon colour range simplifies scheming, complementing any selection of face brick, painted finishes,
fascia treatments and window trims.
*AS 4046.3 - 2002, Method 3: Determination of transverse strength.
