Monier homes will look newer for longer with the introduction of C-LOC ™ (colour lock technology). This brand new coating for flat profile concrete tiles is the latest innovation for roofs
There is no doubt that the look of your home will reflect the style of those who live within it – so maintaining the integrity of the façade material is vital. Your roof, depending on the pitch and architectural style, can contribute to up to 30 per cent of the visual impact of your home. So it makes sense that if your roof fades, so too does the overall look of your property.
Keep your home looking better for longer with Monier’s C-LOC ™ coated roof tiles, which proudly maintain their gloss eight times more effectively than COLORBOND® steel. Monier is committed to delivering the best in product quality and testing. After 2000 hours of independent testing on accelerated weathering, results showed standard COLORBOND® steel loses 98 per cent of its gloss – meaning your metal roof will change in colour or appearance sooner. This colour change results from gradual surface degradation caused by outdoor exposure.
By comparison, C-LOC ™ only loses 12 per cent of its gloss with no visible change in appearance. With 8 times more gloss retention than standard COLORBOND® steel, Monier’s technology outperforms other concrete tile and metal roofing competitors. Gloss has a significant impact on the visual appearance of a surface because it protects the colour. Simply put, a home with C-LOC ™ coating will look better for longer.
Builder Jason Tejon from Designed Group (designedgroup.com.au) says that he always recommends tiles to residential – and commercial – clients because of their superior colour retention.
“My clients are always particular about the colour of their roof,” he says. “So it makes sense after all that effort to choose the right shade to take that extra step to ensure that the colour doesn’t fade.”

Tejon says that more of his clients are choosing the flat profile tiles, which particularly lend themselves to including the C-LOC ™ technology. “The dark greys and blacks are very popular with our clients now and it’s important to maintain that glossy look,” he adds.
C-LOC ™ is featured on Monier’s flat profile concrete tiles, including Atura, Horizon, Cambridge, Georgian and Madison. Monier has a very rich and proud history, protecting families from the harsh Australian conditions for more than 100 years. All Monier concrete products outperform other concrete tile and metal.
