Harvey EcoTile: Protecting the Environment. Protecting your home.

Harvey EcoTile: Protecting the Environment. Protecting your home.
Harvey EcoTile® Mineral Polymer Composite Roof Tiles
Revolutionary roofing ideal for the any climate.

Roof tile design has seen minimal innovation in centuries. Thick, heavy concrete or clay tiles are simply stacked upon one another and held down by their considerable weight. This in turn dictates strong, heavy and expensive roofing structures to cope with the load. These heavy roof tiles are hard and brittle which results in up to 10% breakages on installation and further threat of damage from hail, wind and being walked upon.

 

Steel roofs, on the other hand, are prone to corrosion and wind uplift, as is often seen with violent windstorms across the globe.

 

Harvey Roofing Products sought to resolve these functional challenges by solving another pressing issue: sustainability.

 

How could we improve on archaic roofing systems and at the same time remove harmful plastic waste from the environment? 

 

The breakthrough came in the form of Harvey EcoTile®

 

By utilising waste material, Harvey EcoTile® is 100% recyclable yet provides superior functional benefits to concrete or clay roof tiles.

 

Harvey EcoTile’s®  technological design advantage ensures an interlocking, lightweight tile that is low on maintenance, extreme weather proof and virtually unbreakable in normal use.

 

Specially designed and tested to withstand extreme wind and weather, the product is particularly well suited to the UK climate.

 

Harvey EcoTile®  is entirely manufactured from waste material. Approximately 30% of the product consists of recycled plastic, the equivalent of 4 two-litre plastic milk bottles per roof tile. At full production capacity Harvey EcoTile will remove the equivalent of 32 million bottles a year from the environment. Waste mineral, mainly consisting of stone crushing activities is added at 65% of the composition.

 

It is a waterless product, requiring no water in the production process. In contrast, concrete roof tiles require up to 20% of their weight in water to produce.
