When the roof at Sutton Academy started to fail a quick to install, durable roofing solution supported by an extensive insurance-backed guarantee was required.
Sutton Academy required a pitched roof system that could meet a number of challenges. The tile needed to be suitable for a pitch as low as 14°, and that could match the existing concrete tiles. The project demanded a roof solution that could also accommodate the complexities of many hips, valleys and vertical elements featured on this project.
The chosen solution was the BMI AeroDek Robust Plus tile, suitable for pitches as low as 12° as well as being highly secure, durable and weather-resistant with a 40-year guarantee.
BMI AeroDek tiles are fast to install as they are produced in tile strips, so they require fewer fixings. A typical 65m² roof will require only 139 AeroDek tiles compared to 631 concrete interlocking tiles.
The strength of the AeroDek tiles was also a consideration, as the school is composed of one and two storey buildings, AeroDek metal tiles are more resistant to damage, such as the odd football going on the roof.
This project was supported with the expertise of the BMI Technical team. They inspected the project regularly and helped everyone involved to complete the project with as little impact upon the occupants as possible.
