BMI Icopal - Roofing Systems

Lightweight Roof System - Roofing Tiles - Roofing Systems

The World Leader in Lightweight Roof Systems

BMI Icopal was founded in the UK and Ireland in 1977 when the company introduced the world’s first lightweight roofing tile – the Decra tile.

This revolutionary new product combined great strength with very low weight, offering the benefits of:

  • Easy handling
  • Fast installation
  • Exceptional durability
  • Low maintenance

Through a national network of over 2,000 stockists, BMI Icopal offers the UK’s most complete range of construction membranes, together with support services and insured roofing guarantees.

Since their introduction, BMI Icopal tiles have been proven on all types of building, in new-build and refurbishment projects and in all climates across the globe, from the sub zero temperatures and high winds of Canada to the extreme heat, humidity and salt laden environment of areas such as the Maldives and are now by far the most popular lightweight tile in the world, manufactured in four continents and sold in over 70 countries. The number of Tiles installed in the UK and Ireland exceeds ten million square metres (the equivalent of around 155,000 average terraced houses).
