Pantile 2000 Overview
Britmet’s Pantile 2000 is the most innovative lightweight tile effect sheet in the construction industry. This market-leading product is the lowest BBA approved lightweight tile sheet in the world as it can be fixed to a roof pitch as low as 5°, backed with a weather penetration guarantee. Pantile 2000 is 1080mm (width) x custom length (up to 6m) and successfully achieves roof pitches from 5° - 70°. This unique tile is manufactured as a 'made to measure' product, meaning you can have Pantile 2000 made to your project's rafter length, reducing installation time by up to half.
Pantile 2000 is manufactured using the highest-grade Aluzinc steel, coated with pigmented mineral-filled acrylic. At a 0.9mm thickness gauge, Britmet’s Pantile 2000 is renowned for offering an elegant, secure, anti-vandal roof solution.
Originally manufactured as a replacement for old Asbestos roofs, the Britmet Pantile 2000 can be seen on garages, schools, hospitals and many more across the UK (see our Pantile 2000 case studies here).

Pantile 2000 General Specification
Handling and Storage:
Materials should be unloaded as close as possible to the building where they are going to be installed. On-site, packs should be stored on a firm, dry base away from the possibility of damage. Sheeting packs should be laid on pallets or bearers to allow ground clearance. 100mm x 50mm Bearers should be arranged at the same centres under each pack and must not exceed 2 packs high. They must slope sufficiently to allow any rainwater that may gather to drain away. A tarpaulin sheet should cover the stacks, not touching the surface of the sheets, which will allow for the circulation of air. To prevent damage to the coating on installation, the sheets must be lifted and not dragged from the pack. Damage to the surface coating can be repaired with touch up paint. (Supplied by Britmet.)
Eaves Drip Flashing:
Manufactured and coated in identical material to the main roof covering. The minimum girth of 140mm, once bent, fixed with secondary fixings and butt jointed. (Manufactured length 2m).
Note: if the purlin centres are greater than 900mm, lattice support wires should be used to eliminate the sagging of the breather membrane.
Purlins & Rafters:
Size and centres to be designed to suit Britmet Pantile 2000 tile effect roofing sheets.
Note: for timber purlins, the Tek screw/fastener must have a min. of 38mm penetration.
Note: steel & zed purlins should be a minimum gauge of 1.25mm.
Pantile 2000 Tile Effect Roof Sheet:
All 0.9mm Pantile 2000 galvanised steel sheets are coated using a pigmented mineral-filled acrylic coating, available in 6 standard colours.
Note: All sheets MUST be laid from right to left.
Note: The first sheet must be laid so that its left-hand edge is perpendicular to the eave.
All sheets should be laid full length (ridge to eaves) where possible and securely fixed to the substructure.
Note: where an end/head lap is to be used, for a roof pitch of 10° or more allow a minimum lap of 75mm on the eaves sheet. For a roof pitch of 9° or less allow a minimum lap of 300mm on the eaves sheet.
Lapping requirements: lapping to be undertaken over supported areas only and all sheets must be mitred.
Main sheet fixings are to be fixed through the crown of the profile using Tek screws with a cap colour to suit. Fixings are to be placed at 3 per sheet, per purlin, except for the eaves and ridge purlins which shall be placed at 4. Side lap stitching screws are be placed on every third tile for roof pitches of 10° or more. For roof pitches of less than 10°, they should be placed every second tile. Tek screws are supplied by Britmet. (These quantities may vary due to wind loading or other factors)
Note: For coastal areas, stainless steel screws must be used.
- All holes in the sheet must be drilled (not punched).
- All cutting must be made by a 110-volt nibbler or jigsaw and must take place on the ground or away from the material already fixed.
- All on site cutting to be immediately treated with Firtan, an anti-corrosive material, or touch up kit, provided by Britmet.
Note: After cutting, all swarf must be removed from the roof immediately.
Ridge / Hip Flashing:
The minimum girth of 400mm, 5 times bent, butt-jointed with 50mm under strip or lapped 50mm. (Manufactured length 2m). 3 Fixings should be placed on each side. For roof pitches of 10° or below, hip details should be sealed using compriband expanding foam (B52 25mm x 10mm x 4m).
Barge / Mono Ridge Flashing:
The minimum girth of 340mm, three times bent, buttjointed with 50mm under strip or lapped 50mm. (Manufactured length 2m) 3 Fixings should be placed on each side.
The minimum girth of 420mm, three times bent, buttjointed with 50mm under strip or lapped 50mm. (Manufactured length 2m) 3 Fixings should be placed on each side. For roof pitches of 10° or below, valley details should be sealed using compriband expanding foam (B52 25mm x 10mm x 4m).
