Wienerberger India has recently launched a complete set of roof protection accessories known as Koramic Roof System Components (KRSC). This range of accessories include roofing underlays and insulating material, as well as others. The components offer complete protection from heat and moisture. Wienerberger’s adherence to using high quality and long-lasting products means – continuous protection from water leakage at all vulnerable areas of the roof. Additionally, these roofing systems are quick and easy to install and have roofed more than 1,500 households across South India.
The Koramic Roof Systems Components include:
- PREMIUM REFLEX / Barrier ALU- roofing underlays that provides waterproofing and insulation
- KORAFLEX – flashing tapes that protects the abutments
- KORAROLL – for under ridge protection from moisture and avoid mortar bedding below ridges
- VALLEY SHEETS – for waterproofing in valley areas
- TILES Clips- for wind protection and prevents tiles upliftment in storm /cyclones
Pitch roofs are a common feature for independent houses especially in hill stations and coastal areas owning to various functional attributes as well as the aesthetic standpoint. To suit the attributes, the tiles used for pitched roofs must be strong, robust and flexible.
Wienerberger’s Koramic & Tondach tile solutions are genuine terracotta tiles that come in a wide range of profiles, finishes, and colors that give the architect enough design flexibility. The solution also offers the best protection for houses against weather and wet conditions. They are durable, energy-efficient and the color of the tiles does not fade over time. They have covered over 200,000 sq.mts. of roofs in South India alone. On average, the company’s clay roof solution covers 290,000+ roofs worldwide in a year and is a consistent leader in roof tile manufacturing in Europe for nearly two centuries.
Also, in places where there are heavy rainfalls, like Kerala where last year there was 42% more rainfall recorded than the previous years, erratic weather conditions make it necessary for roof tiles to have inbuilt defence mechanisms against such harsh conditions.
Monnanda Appaiah, MD, Wienerberger India, adds, “A building’s roof is the first real line of defence against the heat and rain. In an extreme hot climatic condition, a good roof should be able to release – not store or absorb- the sun’s rays. Cooling is one of the major concerns in building tropical houses along with rain water proofing.” From a technical point of view, a good roof tile along with the appropriate accessories ensures the creation of a perfect roof. Wienerberger offers a one-stop roofing system that can help both the house owner and the roofer in selecting the right roofing solution for the project.”
