Flat Lock Tiles

Flat Lock Tiles offer designers tremendous design freedom as they can be installed vertically, horizontally or diagonally, in a range of widths.  Variable joint staggering also opens up a wealth of options for designing. 

Flat Lock Tiles may be produced manually or by machine and offer reliable and appealing solutions for complex shapes thanks to their small format.  Flat lock tiles are suitable for large areas of roofing including towers, dormers, chimney stacks and roof edges.  Virtually all curves can be accommodated without a problem.

  • 0.7 mm thick RHEINZINK for panel widths 12” -16”.
  • For cost effectiveness and ease of fabrication and installation limit panel lengths to 10’-0”. Consult a RHEINZINK representative for applications requiring longer lengths.
  • Drained and back ventilated rainscreen system with interlocking hooked seams. No sealants or gaskets required.
  • Refer to the RHEINZINK baseline details for corner, parapet, and penetration options. Consult a RHEINZINK representative for customized applications.
  • Panels can be roll formed or fabricated using brake forming or folding machines.
