Retail and Commercial Buildings

Britmet Lightweight Roofing’s product range is suitable for retail and commercial roofing projects, including refurbishments. Our lightweight roofing tile range and structural liner tray system have been specified on a wide variety of projects, including, Bicester Village and market-leading supermarket chains such as Lidl.

A prime example is Clarks Village Outlet Shopping, Somerset. This commercial building project required a durable structural liner tray for anti-vandal protection and aesthetic qualities. 20,000m2 of Tactray 90 was specified for commercial development in a white polyester finish. 

Britmet’s Tactray 90 structural support system has been used on a wide variety of retail and commercial building projects, including curved roofs, to provide our clients with a great range of design capabilities. Spanning up to 4.8m between purlin and trusses, Tactray 90 improves the speed of overall construction projects, reducing time on site by up to 25%, and saving clients on programme times and expensive building costs. Tactray 90 is also ideal for firewalls and vertical rainscreen support systems, due to its fireproof design, available in a range of finishes, including galvanised or white polyester. Tactray 90 provides decorative walls and ceilings without the need for expensive timber rafters, plasterboard, and/or a painted finish.

Offering the appearance of traditional clay and concrete roofing tiles, Britmet’s lightweight roofing tile range is fire tested to the highest standard, ideal for low roof pitches, cost-effective to suit all budgets, and produces less wastage than traditional roofing materials. Our metal granulated tile range can also be manufactured to a 0.9mm thickness gauge, providing anti-vandal security for any retail or commercial project.
