Square tile

elZinc®'s Square Tile has a robust an elegant appearance.

It is used to form the weathering layer in a fully supported zinc façade or roof, where the tile's design lends the cladding a distinctive joint pattern across the building.

These zinc tiles are suitable for roofs pitched at 25º and above, and for façade work. The zinc tile can be cut, folded and edged just as in traditional zinc work, providing weather-tight joints at the cladding's edges.

It can be supplied with a rigid backing (that can be non-combustable if required) to dampen rain drumming.

Specification
  • Fully supported zinc cladding composed of elZinc Square tiles 400 x 400mm. The tiles are made of elZinc titanium zinc, 0,65 or 0,7mm thick rolled to EN988 and ASTM B69-13.

    Centre to centre joint width is 342mm. Cladding weight is 7kgs/m2 with 0,7mm thick tiles.

    The tiles are fixed directly to the wooden substrate (softwood boarding or plywood or OSB sheathing) using three stainless A2 grade fasteners. For buildings that require a non-combustible substrate for the zinc, trapezoidal metal sheet panels are used as a substitute for the wooden sheathing / boarding.

    Façade application: The cladding is normally rear-vented behind the supporting sheathing / boarding with a ventilating space of at least 20mm (some countries require more). A simple breather membrane is normally installed between the zinc and the substrate to act as a separating layer. 

    Roofing application: The roof is either ventilated with a ventilating space of between 50 and 100mm (depending on rafter length) under the substrate, or installed in an unventilated (warm) roof design which includes suitable methods for condensation control. A structural underlay (and draining membrane) is often required under the zinc to ensure air circulation to its underside.
