In the impact resistance test, the ice balls hit the roof tiles at 112 km/h speed.
The Verea roof tiles have just passed the FM 4473 Gail impact resistance test at level 3, carried out at the American laboratory Intertek. In this test, a 44,45 mm diameter ice ball, similar to the size of a golf ball, is propelled like a missile against the roof tiles at 112 km/h speed without causing damage to the roof. This endurance test is considered level 3 due to the diameter of the hail propelled.
This is one more proof of the great resistance of Verea roof tiles to adverso weather conditions, such as the hail storms that are very common in the south-central of United States.
In addition, since 2009, Verea roof tiles are classified as level 1of resistance to frost according to the European standard UNE EN 539-2, which requires overcoming more than 150 freezing cycles. Verea roof tiles are the only ones in the market that have certified resistance to more than 500 freeze-thaw cycles.
Currently, all Verea roof tile is authorized to be instalen in the most demandan climatologically areas, such as the north United States and Canada.
