It is the opinion of the Canadian Construction Materials Centre that the evaluated products, when used as a metal roofing system in accordance with the conditions and limitations stated in this evaluation, comply with the following code:
National Building Code of Canada 2015
|ID||Code provision||Solution type|
|09-03-03-02-00-0-00||18.104.22.168. Galvanized Sheet Steel||Acceptable|
|09-26-01-02-00-0-00||22.214.171.124.(1) Roofs shall be protected with roofing, i ...||Acceptable|
|09-26-02-00-00-0-00||9.26.2. Roofing Materials||Alternative|
The above opinion(s) is/are based on the evaluation by the CCMC of technical evidence provided by the evaluation holder, and is bound by the stated conditions and limitations. For the benefit of the user, a summary of the technical information that forms the basis of this evaluation has been included.
- ArrowLine Shingle Shake
- ArrowLine Slate
The panels are manufactured from 0.37-mm-thick galvanized steel coated with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). The underside of the panels is finished with a corrosion-resistant coating. The panels are 1 288 mm × 325 mm, of which 1 270 mm × 305 mm is exposed. The panels are stamped to simulate traditional shake or slate roofing products.
The panels have an interlocking system on all four sides and are installed from left to right using five fastener clips per panel. The complete roofing system includes accessories such as an eave and rake starter, ridge and hip cap, shingle and valley clips, valley flashing and cap, and end wall flashing.
This evaluation is valid only for products produced at the following plant:

Conditions and limitations
The CCMC’s compliance opinion is bound by this product being used in accordance with the conditions and limitations set out below.
- The panels must be installed on roofs having a minimum slope of 1 in 3.
- The panels must be installed over solid sheathing complying with the requirements of Subsection 9.23.16., Roof Sheathing, of Division B of the NBC 2015.
- An underlay consisting of two layers of Type 15 organic felt or one layer of Type 30 organic felt must be used in conjunction with the panels.
- The panels must be installed with eave protection as indicated in Subsection 9.26.5., Eave Protection for Shingles and Shakes, of Division B of the NBC 2015.
- Flashing must be installed in compliance with the requirements of Subsection 9.26.4., Flashing at Intersections, of Division B of the NBC 2015.
- Only fasteners and accessories supplied by the manufacturer may be used in conjunction with the products. The fasteners and accessories must be compatible with the base metal of the panels.
- The roofing system is for use in locations where access is limited to maintenance or repair purposes. When access is needed, temporary walkways or roof boards are recommended to avoid any permanent damage to the panels.
- The panels must be installed in strict conformance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
- The product must be clearly identified with the phrase "CCMC 13380-R."
