Portrait of the architect Michael Embacher, talking about the longevity of the beautiful aluminium rhomboid façade tile.
I wanted to demonstrate how flexible the product is and how it can be used three-dimensionally. And that’s exactly the difference between PREFA and typical roof shingles — longevity, on the one hand, and just how precisely and diversely the material can be used on the other — whether on exposed surfaces, eaves or soffits.

The PREFA roof and façade systems are advantageous in many ways. In addition to the appealing aesthetics, the rhomboids are the perfect choice for curved façades due to their versatility. Another plus is that the material is very lightweight.

The advantage of PREFA rhomboid roof tiles is that they are not quadratic like typical shingles. They have this special form that exudes calm, and they have a pleasing texture that meshes with nature. Just like the PREFA rhomboid roof tiles, nature has more fluid shapes than squares.
Portrait of the architect Johan Cranqvist, in front of a bookcase, discussing the use of the robust PREFA rhomboid façade tile in modern architecture
The community was very picky when it came to the façade; it had to be robust enough to withstand all of the children’s games, footballs being kicked around and what have you. We had to make sure that it didn’t need to be repaired every six months. To that end, we thought PREFA aluminium would be up to the task. The “as strong as a bull” claim and the 40-year guarantee convinced them and they approved it.
