The look of slate with the power of Monier SOLARtile
Monier SOLARtiles integrate fully with the roof line and Monier's Cambridge roof tile.

Driven by a keen sense of aesthetics and love of ‘American lux’ architecture, this home exudes the smart, comfortable elegance and sophistication of the American east coast. The colours draw on the soft, earthy, natural colours of Connecticut. The roof is high pitched, sleek and streamlined across its different planes. The Monier Cambridge Soho Night roof tile used is a dark grey to black colour that gives the look of slate.

The client chose the Monier Cambridge roof tile because of this slate look, its fire rating (the house is situated in a bush fire prone area) and the thermal mass advantages of roof tiles when it comes to energy efficiency. The other major contributing factor was that Monier SOLARtile integrates seamlessly with the Cambridge roof tile.

Adamant about solar power, but not wanting the look of solar panels, the client chose Monier SOLARtiles because they integrate fully with the roof line and look like roof tiles. They are the first BIPV roofing product of their kind in Australia and deliver high performance, clean, green energy without the look of unsightly bolt-on panels.

Monier’s Cambridge ‘slate look’ roof tile combined with the power of SOLARtile has resulted in a home that is beautiful looking, energy efficient and sustainable into the future.
