Icopal Chestnut Brown Royal Hexagonal Felt Shingle
Icopal Royal Hexagonal Felt Shingles
Are you looking for a durable and highly waterproof material for the roof of your building? Then look no further than Icopal Royal Hexagonal Felt Shingle. Thanks to its hard-wearing nature and high-performance features this material continues to be a popular roofing option for many domestic and commercial buildings, including summer houses and sports pavilions.
Icopal Royal Hexagonal Felt Shingle is available to purchase in a wide range of natural colours, perfect if you are conscious about making sure that your building blends in with the natural environment. The royal hexagonal shapes also create a modern and clean-lined appearance.
The shingle can be applied to all manner of roofs; from shallow to steep. For roofs with a gradient of between 15 and 45 degrees, a shingle underlay needs to be applied before the strips are laid. For roofs that are steeper than 45 degrees, no underlay is required – just apply the shingle to the existing roof structure. Icopal Royal Hexagonal Felt Shingle can also be applied to vertical roofs.
Whether you’re a DIY lover or require some assistance from a roofing expert, Icopal provide step-by-step instructions on how to lay the shingle, in addition to a list of the necessary materials involved.
Icopal have designed an innovative way to assist the laying of the shingle so you will benefit from optimum performance. The ‘tab and groove’ location system will help to ensure that the appropriate layering of the felt shingle strips is achieved, which will create an effective waterproof structure so your roof structure remains free from damp-related issues.
As already mentioned, the Icopal Royal Hexagonal Felt Shingle is highly durable. This is largely down to the composition of materials that are layered to create the finished product. The base consists of heavy weight glass fibre, which is then layered with oxidised bitumen, producing a combination that is highly weather resistant and waterproof.
The upper surface is coated with coloured mineral granules. To ensure the colour doesn’t fade in the sunlight, the felt shingle is given a UV resistant finish.
