We are the leading manufacturer of  Composite Slate Roof Tiles. Barrington Roof Tiles is a slate roofing company manufactured by Composite Materials Engineering. At Composite Materials Engineering, we pride ourselves on being the leaders in composite materials with the most up to date technology in materials and manufacturing processes to offer our customers a competitive advantage in their industry.

At Barrington Roof Tiles our slate roofing manufacturing company based in Melbourne we engineer, manufacture and process our own raw materials unique to the customer’s requirements. These materials are engineered to meet our customer’s specification when off the shelf materials or traditional materials will not achieve the performance required.

Barrington Roof Tiles is manufactured from Torbex which is a structural, non-corrosive and fire resistant composite material used in the building industry and born out of the automotive industry.

Barrington Roof Tiles require minimal maintenance – a common problem for natural slate and terracotta tiling – and are easy to handle and install. They are so strong each tile can hold up to 120kg in weight, making walking on them a breeze. Featuring an interlocking design and moulded water channels, which ensures they won’t leak or distort when correctly installed, Barrington Roof Tiles have excellent weatherproof characteristics – including fire, hail and UV resistance – making them suitable for all climates and conditions. Locally manufactured by Australian company Composite Materials Engineering, Barrington Roof Tiles believe in creating quality products for quality homes and offers 30 year guarantee on structure.
