Innovative Concrete Tile Design Offers High Wind Uplift Resistance for Florida Market

Boral Roofing LLC introduces an innovative new design of its popular Boral Saxony 900 concrete tile in Florida. The new tile design addresses climate conditions in the region with improved installation techniques for enhanced durability and resiliency. Boral Saxony 900 tiles may be fastened with less of ICP Group’s Polyset AH-160 Foam Adhesive than similar competing flat tile options, reducing installation costs and offering better protection from the elements.

The advanced design of the concrete tile features a lower profile and thicker mid-body. With the design enhancements, the tile may now be installed utilizing up to 25 percent less Polyset AH-160 Adhesive than competing tile options, resulting in a more efficient installation process to save in both labor and material costs. (Uplift resistance values were determined by independent testing by a qualified Florida and Miami-Dade approved laboratory.)

“This new Florida tile roofing solution is a direct result of Boral Roofing’s unyielding drive to envision and produce the highest performing roofing systems for customers,” said Rick Hackett, product marketing manager for Boral Roofing. “The enhanced Boral Saxony 900 tile offers improvements for installation and weather resiliency in a region that is notorious for severe rain, sun and wind.”

During professional installation, contractors use Polyset AH-160 Adhesive paddies to fasten Boral Saxony 900 concrete tiles to an approved roofing underlayment, such as Boral TileSeal.  For medium-sized paddies, ICP Group recommends 10 to 12 square inches of adhesive contact to the underside of the tile. (For Polyset AH-160 Roof Tile Adhesive Instructions, see  https://www.polysetadhesives.com/wp-content/uploads/ICP-Polyset-AH-160-Installation-Instructions.pdf.)

According to the manufacturer, Boral Saxony 900 tile’s unique design allows for the adhesive to disperse more evenly across the tile.

“Boral Roofing has been serving Florida with quality manufacturing and the latest in roofing product innovation for more than 60 years,” said Hackett. “Boral Saxony 900 continues that tradition.”

Boral offers Saxony 900 concrete tile in numerous color options, many of which are readily available and some made-to-order to complement any Floridian architectural theme and home color palette. Like all Boral Roofing concrete tile systems, Boral Saxony 900 is Class A Fire Rated. The concrete tile features a non-prorated and fully transferable limited lifetime warranty.

Refillable System for Commercial Roofing Adhesives

ICP Building Solutions Group’s latest low-slope commercial roofing solution is a refillable system and is intended to pair with the company’s Polyset CR-20 and Board-Max adhesives. Polyset CR-20 is a low-rise, two-component polyurethane foam adhesive engineered for speed and simplicity. According to the company, it’s ideal for adhering fleece back membranes in both new and re-roof applications. Polyset Board-Max adhesive is specifically engineered to secure insulation and cover boards to various roof decks, cover boards and substrates. 

The new refillable cylinder options provide the same quality adhesives and a lower applied cost per square foot, with the same Handi-Gun dispensing unit and ColorWise Temperature Warning Nozzles, making it easy to access hard-to-reach areas and provide faster application on open roofs. According to the manufacturer, the system offers a higher coverage rate than disposable tanks, and low cost to entry makes this system ideal for high-volume and high-efficiency roofing contractors. 

“As part of our mission as an organization to innovate with contractors’ needs in mind, we’re pleased to bring refillable systems to the market, paired with our leading Polyset CR-20 and Board-Max adhesives,” said Dave Spaulding, director of sales, ICP BSG Low Slope Roofing Products. “This offering reduces equipment and applied costs while reducing the environmental impact of work, both on and off the job site, by eliminating landfill waste.” 

After the completion of the job, returning the cylinders is easy. When the tanks are empty, contractors simply return them to the pallet, wrap the pallet, and call the 800 number that comes with the cylinders on the Bill of Lading. There is no return freight for the contractor because the return freight is built into the total cost of the product, making this a greener solution with fewer steps for the contractor.
