FixMaster roof tile specification calculations assume that your site is not more than halfway up a steep hill or in a town and bordered by open space, nor surrounded by tall buildings. A slope is considered to form a steep hill if the land rises or falls by more than 50m over 1km, i.e. has more than 5% gradient.
Tall buildings would include tower blocks, clock towers in the town, cooling towers etc. within 500m.
Bordered by open space in a town means your site in the town is bordered by more than 20m of open land on any side.
If any of these conditions apply contact our BMI Redland Technical Services team.
