Roof shingles with high quality fiberglass
Diamant PLUS is being produced in Europe. To meet the stringent European standards, IKO Shingles only uses glass fiber. Organic shingles (felt inlay) don’t meet the EN norms. Even though IKO only offers a high quality fiberglass (and not felt!) based asphalt shingle, fiberglass roof shingles often suffer from confusion with very poor quality organic felt shingles on the market (also known as felt tiles or felt roof tiles).
Calculate how many shingles and accessories you need for your next project!
Do not be confused, they are not the same! Fiberglass inlays, like used in our IKO shingles, offer a strong and durable shingle, resistant to all kind of weather conditions. Organic felt inlay (which is used in felt shingles, felt tiles or felt roof tiles and – just to be clear - NOT in IKO Shingles) on the other side is less waterproof and fireproof, because felt shingles are very porous. They absorb humidity, which after temperature and weather differences can lead to premature and disastrous curling and cracking of these felt shingles. Shingles with fiberglass inlay, like IKO roof shingles, are the safe option.
Fireproof roof shingles
All IKO Shingles have undergone fire testing (external fire performance and reaction to fire) by an independent Belgian institute and have a BRoofT1 attest, which means that IKO Roof Shingles are fireproof. They do not catch fire nor extinguish fire. Well, that sounds like a good reason to buy Diamant PLUS.
These advantages also count for Armourglass PLUS and Victorian PLUS, 2 shingles in different shapes (respectively rectangular and rounded shape) that offer the same quality. Most important features of these 3 types of PLUS shingles are UV protection; flexibility at low temperature and APP modified bitumen.
