Wienerberger India launched a complete set of roof protection accessories- Koramic Roof System Components (KRSC) this year. The accessories include roofing underlays, insulating material, and other accessories. The components offer complete protection from heat and moisture, and long-lasting products that give continuous protection from water leakage at all vulnerable areas of the roof.  These roofing systems are quick and easy to install and have roofed more than 1,500 households across South India.

The Koramic Roof Systems Components include Premium Reflex/Barrier ALU- roofing underlays that provides waterproofing and insulation, Koraflex – flashing tapes that protects the abutments, Koraroll – for under ridge protection from moisture and avoid mortar bedding below ridges, Valley Sheets – for waterproofing in valley areas, Tiles Clips- for wind protection and prevents tiles upliftment in storm /cyclones. Pitch roofs are a common feature for independent houses especially in hill stations and coastal areas owning to various functional attributes as well as the aesthetic standpoint. To suit the attributes, the tiles used for pitched roofs must be strong, robust and flexible. Wienerberger’s Koramic and Tondach tile solutions are genuine terracotta tiles that come in a wide range of profiles, finishes, and colors that give the architect enough design flexibility. The solution also offers the best protection for houses against weather and wet conditions. They are durable, energy-efficient and color that does not fade over time. On average, the company’s clay roof solution covers more than 290,000+ roofs worldwide in a year and is a consistent leader in roof tile manufacturing in Europe for nearly two centuries.

Also, in places where there are heavy rainfalls, like Kerala where last year, there was 42 per cent more rainfall recorded than the previous years, erratic weather conditions make it necessary for roof tiles to have inbuilt defence mechanisms against such harsh conditions.
