Slate Tile Eco Alternative - Viking EcoStar
Viking EcoStar tiles provide an eco-alternative and capture the authentic appearance of natural slate roofing or hand-split cedar wood tiles.
Manufactured from recycled plymer, EcoStar roof tiles are a practical solution for period homes; historic buildings; or for modern buildings requiring the same antithetic appeal, without the expense, weight and impracticality.
Viking EcoStar tiles come with a comprehensive 50-year product warranty.
Viking EcoStar is composed of 80% post-industrial recycled rubber and plastics from the likes of old car bumpers, door mouldings, radiator hoses; and even off-cuts from the manufacture of disposable diapers! They are also 100% recyclable at the end of their usable life!
EcoStar boasts 45 colour and profile combinations, with each profile having been made up of a minimum of 60 ever-so-slightly-different moulds to ensure the authentic, imperfect look of natural slate tile’s textured surface and individually hand-crafted bevelled edges.

The Viking EcoStar system (including the timber-sarked substrate on which it is installed), is less than half the weight of slate tiles. This places less stress on a building, and the timber sarking adds significant bracing to the building’s structure.
StrandSarking is the best option as a substrate for Ecostar tiles. Engineered and manufactured in New Zealand, its benefits far outweigh the alternatives.
