Sri Lanka’s premier total roofing solutions provider Metecno Lanka Ltd – (formerly known as Metroof Ltd) made its mark in the country’s construction arena by being one of the pioneers to introduce zinc-aluminium roofing sheets in 1993 and through the ground breaking introduction of the ‘Sandwich Panels’ in 2007, which features an excellent heat resistant polyurethane layer sandwiched between two steel sheets.   Metecno Lanka Ltd has yet again contributed for the construction industry by introducing a novel product in the name of ‘Metcoppo’ which is a hi-end zinc-aluminium roofing tile. “Metecno has always introduced novel products to the market. These products have immensely helped those involved in the construction arena to overcome various challenges faced by them. The Sandwich Panel which we introduce way back in 2007 has become very popular in the local market and we are confident that Metcoppo will be a success as well,” Metecno Lanka CEO Anuksha Sri Nammuni said.   A key advantage of using Sandwich panels is that it does not require any insulation to be installed underneath, in order to reduce the heat, due to its polyurethane layer. Therefore it cuts down the completion time of the roofing work by nearly 10 %. This is a great benefit to the contractor as well as the client. Yet another benefit for the client, due to the heat resistant feature of this product is that it cuts down the cost of electricity, required for air-conditioning by approximately 15% – 30%. Sandwich Panels are an energy efficient and environmentally friendly product that will provide savings for the user in the long term.   Metecno Sandwich Panels are available in the profiles of Glamet (roofing), Monowall (wall cladding) and Frigowall (cool rooms) with variable polyurethane core thicknesses from 30 mm up to a maximum of 150 mm. They are offered in an attractive choice of colours and up to 10 m in length. The product is extremely light weight yet of high durability and stability, he added, elaborating on the newly introduced panels. Metcoppo is a specially designed Zinc-Aluminium roofing tile which is available as single skin roofing tiles or sandwich panel tiles. The design is based on the classical Spanish tile which is renowned for its aesthetic appearance. Metcoppo is the ideal roofing solution for the high end residential sector as well as the commercial sector with its sophisticated styling and traditional appearance. Metcoppo roofing tiles comes in a range of attractive colours and is very competitively priced.   “All of our products are fast moving due to their extremely useful nature. I can recommend this product with confidence to anybody based on the results of the stringent quality checks and the comments received from clients who have already used the product,” added Nammuni.
