New Zealand Made with a global reputation for strength and quality

Installed in more than 80 countries around the world. From the extreme winters of Russia, the Typhoons and Earthquakes of Japan, The intense heat of Africa, Metrotile has proven itself the world over.

Backed by BRANZ

New Zealand's largest independent construction testing and research organisation, BRANZ, have appraised our products to meet or exceed the New Zealand building code. We have also tested our products around the globe and they exceed every common benchmark for strength and durability. In fact, our roofs are fire and earthquake safe, hail and wind resistant and will never warp or rust like other materials. Even in an area prone to severe weather events like hail or cyclones our roofs will stand the test of time.

Keep your project on budget and ahead of schedule

Our tiles can be installed in almost any weather.

Due to the size of the panels they aren't impacted by the wind like long-run and they also have a non-slip coating to ensure they can be installed in the wet. They are not reliant on a seal strip to bond panels together like asphalt shingles. This means less weather delays and downtime as you wait to get the building enclosed, ensuring you can keep to your schedule.

Faster installation

Metrotile profiles are installed as panels instead of individual tiles, making the process faster than tradional tiles. Practical install methods and products that work well together in real life. The panels are installed in a simple cut, nail or screw and interlock system which means, installer productivity is maximised, and less labour is needed for overall. Our roofs are a modular, lightweight system, often an entire roof can be delivered on one pallet, saving space on site and reducing delivery costs. 

Save on scaffolding

As the entire roofing system gets delivered up-front there are no delays for the measuring and manufacturing of flashings. Our contractors have everything they need to complete the roof so there is no need to keep scaffolding up as you wait for them to come back to complete the job.

Save on purlins

Save on the costs of roofing materials and lift builders productivity. As roofing contractors are well versed at getting around the roof we get them to install the battens and this price will be included in any quote you recieve saving you the cost of timber for purlins.

This saves the builder time, as they no longer need to get up on the roof and install purlins, instead they can focus their time on key tasks elsewhere on site. Leading to incrased site productivity.

Save on time

With Metrotile, the roof of an average sized home can be finished within 4 days of the installation start.

Made from highest quality materials 

Made from highly regarded pure New Zealand steel and the highest quality stone, our ISO9001 manufacturing facility, upholds the highest standards from product sourcing, through manufacturing to delivery of materials and beyond.

The steel is coated with Zinalume, combining the corrosion protection of aluminium with the sacrificial protection of zinc to create an alloy that's ideal for roofing and with a servicable life that far exceeds galvanised products.

Our tiles are painted once they have been pressed and formed. This ensures that the paint doesn't fracture or crack during the forming procecss. Our tiles go through an extensive Qualiting Assurance process and our coating technology makes for the extremely long serviceable life.

Environmental Benefits


Made from the most recycled building material in the world, steel. Steel is infinitely recyclable so unlike other roofing products it will continue to be reused over and over again. Also given that the entire roofing system can be supplied on 1 -2 pallets, a Metrotile roof has a low carbon footprint.

Potable Water

Metrotile roofs have been tested and meet the World Health Organisation standards for water run off, meaning you can drink water from a Metrotile roof, some other petroleum based roofing products can break down and become toxic after a few years.

Best thermal performance and energy efficiency

Metrotile roofs are known as “cool roofs”. This means they have the ability to cut building owners’ energy costs because they reduce the need for air conditioning.

Metrotile roofing products are designed to be elevated from the roof deck which creates a natural air flow referred to as “Above Sheathing Ventilation”(ASV). This ventilation prevents heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter. In addition to proper attic insulation, this can help lower electric costs associated with heating/cooling.

The combination between our steel panels and ASV have seen customers achieve 30% reductions in the energy bills (compared to Asphalt shingle direct-to-deck installation).

Profiles and colors perfectly suited to New Zealand buildings

Regardless of the look you are going for we have a profile just for it. With low profile tiles with clean lines to Mediterranean inspired tiles. With our range of tile profiles and colours we are sure to have something to suit your project.
