NFRC welcomes FP McCann with £30m concrete roof tile division

< 1 min

New NFRC Supplier Member, FP McCANN, has recently opened a state-of-the art concrete roof tile manufacturing facility to supply an extensive range of concrete roofing products to the housing and commercial sectors.

The fully-automated facility at the company’s Cadeby precast site, near Nuneaton in Leicestershire, has the capacity to produce 60 million roof tiles per annum; it will also deliver impressive carbon reductions as the factory is 100% powered by solar panels.

FP McCann is entering the market with its thin leading edge interlocking concrete roof tiles—Thin Flat” and “Thin Flat Duo”. In place, the tiles give a slate-like appearance when laid half broken bond. The modern-looking low-profile tiles available in Anthracite Grey, Terracotta and Brown, feature a smooth non-textured finish and bullnose edge.

The “Seawave” is a standard profile concrete roof tile with a subtle soft-roll design. This classic double pantile feature lends itself to both traditional and contemporary styles.

Commenting on the new products, Jonathan Pratt, FP McCann’s National Roof Tile Manager says,

“We will guarantee the highest standards of quality whilst also providing the market with a low-cost solution to all their pitched roofing requirements. Following thorough testing for wind uplift and water resistance, FP McCann can confidently state that all three tile formats will be installable to a 17.5 degree pitch whilst maintaining integrity and water tightness when installed and fixed to BS5534 standards and NHBC construction guidelines”
