DESIGN

Tractile is the new alternative in roofing

IN SIMPLE TERMS TRACTILE PROVIDES A 4-IN-1 COMBINATION OF ROOF TILE, ELECTRICITY, HEATED WATER, AND INSULATION IN A VERY ARCHITECTURALLY APPEALING PACKAGE. THIS IS WHY WE CALL IT THE SMARTER ROOF.

Tractile provides an innovative combination of interlocking systems, high performance composite materials, and solar technology. Developed in Australia, the highly awarded Tractile Roofing system can be used on residential and commercial projects and has been designed with a focus on design, performance, energy, and sustainability.
Tractile is superior to traditional roofing products.

SYSTEM AND TECHNOLOGY

Worlds first integrated solar roof tile solution, generating both electricity and heated water from a single unit. Combines photovoltaic solar cells with thermal hot water in a common platform.

MATERIALS

Tractile Roof system is made of modern, lightweight composite materials. It uses a hook located on the underside of the tile designed to interlock with the roof battens.

STYLE

Every now and then a product comes along that revolutionizes an industry. When it comes to roofing that product is Tractile.

ENERGY

The Roof Integrated Photovoltaic and Thermal (RIPV-T) system is an exciting new technology which merges photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal hot water (STHW) systems, simultaneously providing both electricity and heated water.

Through this combination, the system also achieves significantly increased electrical performance in hot conditions, due to the thermal energy generation cooling the PV cells.

In this way, more energy is generated per unit surface area when compared to separate photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collector’s side-by-side.

Traditional PV systems turn an average of 10 to 20% of the sunlight into electricity. The remainder (80 to 90%) is lost as heat. Also, as PV cells heat up in warm or hot conditions, their performance is reduced.

EXCESS ELECTRICITY PRODUCED BY THE TRACTILE SOLAR SYSTEM AND NOT USED BY THE HOME, CAN BE STORED IN A BATTERY OR SOLD BACK TO THE ENERGY GRID.

PERFORMANCE

A TRACTILE ROOF IS ENGINEERED TO WITHSTAND EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS OFFERING LONGEVITY WITH LOW MAINTENANCE.

Responding to the threat of climate change a Tractile roof shields and protects the home and family.

QUALITY

Tractile provides an innovative combination of interlocking systems, high performance composite materials, and solar technology.

EFFICIENCY

In simple terms Tractile provides a 4-in-1 combination of Roof Tile, Insulation, Electricity and Hot Water in a very architecturally appealing package.

Why Tractile?

FOR HOMEOWNERS:

Higher performance roofs during extreme weather conditions and lower maintenance costs.

FOR BUILDERS:

Increase speed of installation, requiring less man-hours and lower skill base. High performance reduces warranty claims.

TRACTILE USES MODERN MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES TO PROVIDE A BETTER FUNCTIONING ROOF:

Tractile roof provides a 4-in-1 combination of Roof + Electricity + Heated Water + Insulation
Tractile roof is a low maintenance roof, it does not crack, dent or corrode, it comes with 30 year warranty and BAL40 bush fire rating
Tractile roof is extremely strong: able to withstand 250 kg loading, 300 km per hour winds, and 65 millimetre hailstones
Tractile roof can be standard installed on a 10 degrees to 90 degrees pitch, and can be ordered in any colour

DEVELOPED IN AUSTRALIA, THE HIGHLY AWARDED TRACTILE ROOFING SYSTEM CAN BE USED ON RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL PROJECTS AND HAS BEEN DESIGNED WITH A FOCUS ON DESIGN, PERFORMANCE, ENERGY, AND SUSTAINABILITY.
