Developing The Ideas That Drive Innovation

The BMI Redland name doesn't just stand for traditional roof design. We have a reputation for innovation that has seen us consistently champion new products & practices over the years.

BMI Redland has a history littered with innovations that have helped specifiers, house builders and home owners design and build their roofs to an ever increasing standard.

For example, it was BMI Redland that opened the first dedicated wind tunnel for testing roofing products in 1965. Then went one better by building a more sophisticated version in 1990.

Before then, BMI Redland had already launched the industry's first Dry Ventilated Ridge system. In fact the same year, 1985, was quite a year, as BMI Redland also launched the much heralded Cambrian Slate, the first replica slate on the market that contained over 60% Natural Slate and which subsequently went on to win the Queens Award for Technological Achievement.

And now, in a vastly different environment to that which existed all those years ago, BMI Redland continue to come up with the solutions the industry requires, responding to changes in regulations and the social climate with a similar diversity of products such as the lead replacement Rapid Flashing and the fully integrated Solar PV range.

These, along with many other firsts have helped make the BMI Redland brand synonymous with quality and a forward thinking attitude. This reflects, not only in BMI Redland products and services, but also in the people employed.
