LATEST NEWS ON ROOF SHINGLES
The total ban on the export of Iron wood beams and boards remains, however, the Indonesian Government has relaxed the export regulations for Iron wood roof shingles.
A few yeras ago the Indonesian Government announced a TOTAL ban on the export of Iron wood (the wood species from which roof shingels are produced). As such not one manufacturer in Indonesia was allowed to utilize this wood species for roof shingles. The Government has recently relaxed the export of Iron wood shingles, provided the shingles are newly produced. Iron wood shingels from old stock are NOT allowed to be exported. Minimum order is 100 m2 (1,080 sqft)
The use of old and new Iron wood roof shingles for local (Indonesian) purposes, however, is still allowed.
Since a ban on Iron wood shingles may well be imposed again we offer an alternative solution for our houses following an in-house developed system using a hardwood species which is allowed to be shipped abroad.
ALTERNATIVE SHINGLE ROOF (allowed to be exported)
Our shingle panel roof system that replaces the Iron woods shingle system is the result of a 5-year long developing process. The shingles made from an alternative carefully selcted wood species (not to be disclosed here) are allowed to be exported and are fixed onto a Bangkirai timber frame which measures only 1350 x 500 mm (4' - 5" x 1' - 8"). The weight of the frame + shingles attached to it is just 40 kgs (88 lbs).
Our system allows 2 persons to install the shingle panels one-by-one until the roof is fully covered, rather than the system whereas half or a quarter of a roof section needs to be lifted in place requiring a small crane or a jib. The seams between these large panels are often not waterproof, are damaged and/or broken. With our paneling system such is impossible while the installation is very simple. You may also order our shingles separately, without the paneling.
