Viking EcoStar tiles are: flexible; won't crack; and have a high impact resistance; providing protection against the most extreme conditions.

EcoStar comprises of 80% 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.

The EcoStar system (including substrate) weighs less than half of slate tiles, placing less stress on a building, and the substrate further braces the building structure. 

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.

"Our house was transformed when we replaced the existing roofing with EcoStar. We have received plenty of compliments and are thrilled that after it was completed, it still looks as good as it did from the start. Great job - thank you! Highly recommended and knowing it has such a long product warranty period is an extra bonus!"
