Rainbow Suntiles

Bring extra light & atmosphere into your home with transparent tiles. One Suntile is equivilent to the length of three conventional clay or concrete tiles. It can be introduced into any existing tiled roof, in place of the usual tiles. Since it follows the same contours as conventional tiles, the Suntile blends perfectly and will be hardly noticed from the outside. The beauty of the Suntile is that it allows a lot more light into the room or area below – five times more light, in fact, than a window of the same size! They are idealy suited for areas where you do not have a ceiling, like your garage or patio, but can easily be introduced into any area of your home.

Do It Yourself. Anyone can install a Suntile, you simply remove your existing tiles and replace them with a Suntile, it’s that simple!

Weather & Hail Proof. Suntile’s are made from 4mm ultra high impact acrylic which offers incredibly high impact resistance. There are profiles available to match most conventional roof tiles and because of this, no flashings or messy waterproofing is needed.
