FixMaster is a guaranteed tile and batten fixing specification service tailored to individual roof designs. It's Redland's high technology solution to incorrect fixing providing the most cost-effective specification to comply with British Standards.
As no two roofs are the same, FixMaster takes into account all variable factors including roof geometry, location and products used. A full assessment is made of any nearby tall structures, natural topographical features or, in the case of airports in the locality, pressures generated by aircraft trailing wake vortices.

BMI pitches up with a new flat roof training facility
Following the completion of a new BMI Icopal flat roofing training area, and the refurbishment of the existing BMI Redland pitched training facility, BMI’s National Training Centre is now able to offer contractors, merchants and students an extensive range of both pitched and flat roof courses at the one location. This makes BMI the only UK roofing manufacturer able to offer training in both disciplines and at the one site.
