Britmet Lightweight Roofing has shown beyond doubt to be the top choice for educational buildings. From new build to refurbishment, Britmet's products can be seen on thousands of educational buildings across the UK.

Britmet Lightweight Roofing products offer an array of benefits for educational buildings, including lightweight, low-pitch capabilities and anti-vandal properties. If your project requires specialist accessories such as roof windows or solar PV, we can supply compatible accessories with the rest of your roofing materials.

Unfortunately for many educational facilities, vandalism is the main concern for the building structure. Britmet offers lightweight metal roofing tiles with reinforced security of a 0.9mm thickness gauge that’s been thoroughly tested against heavy foot traffic and high impact to provide peace of mind for our clients.

Britmet’s innate lightweight capabilities ensure prompt rooftop installations. Weighing just one-seventh the weight of traditional roofing materials such as concrete or clay tiles, Britmet’s granulated metal profiles also have the cover width of 5 traditional tiles, speeding the total installation time up by half in comparison to traditional roofing materials. This is ideal for reducing any disruption to classes or seminars taking place inside the building, or projects can be scheduled to take place during shorter school holidays such as half-term breaks; avoiding class disruption altogether.

Britmet’s lightweight roofing materials allow educational buildings to have reduced insurance premiums, reduced maintenance costs and greatly reduce breakings and theft of any property. Britmet Lightweight Roofing has been specified on hundreds of educational buildings due to its inherent strength, quality aesthetics, lightweight capabilities, as low as 7kg/m² fixed to pitches as low as 5˚, and fire resistance. 

For educational building specifiers we have NBS and BIM downloads, with installation manuals, and a large display of ‘How To Videos’ over at our Resource Hub.
