Product information

Product names:

  • Interlock® Cedar
  • Interlock® Slate

Product description

Each product is a 265-mm × 460-mm shingle formed from 0.48-mm-thick pre-coated aluminum sheets coated with a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coating. The surface of the shingle is embossed with a wood shake or a slate pattern. The products are to be installed over solid sheathing with aluminum fasteners.

The products have an interlocking system on all four sides. The interlocking system along the sides of each shingle panel consists of a 16-mm flat lock seam. Along the top of each panel, there is a screw strip formed by folding the base material over the top of itself into a 35-mm clip. The bottom edge of the panel is formed into a hook that snaps into the screw strip of the panel below.

The system includes accessories such as ridge and hip caps, drip edges, valley flashing and starter flashing. A typical slate panel and cedar panel are shown in Figure 1 below.

Disclaimer

This evaluation is issued by the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC), a part of the Construction Research Centre at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). The evaluation must be read in the context of the entire CCMC Registry of Product Assessments and the legislated applicable building code in effect.

The CCMC was established in 1988 on behalf of the applicable regulator (i.e., the provinces and territories) to ensure—through assessment—conformity of alternative and acceptable solutions to regional building codes as determined by the local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) as part of the issuance of a building permit.

It is the responsibility of the local AHJs, design professionals, and specifiers to confirm that the evaluation is current and has not been withdrawn or superseded by a later issue. Please refer to the website or contact:

The information and opinions in this evaluation are directed to those who have the appropriate degree of experience to use and apply its contents (i.e., AHJs, design professionals and specifiers). This evaluation is only valid when the product is installed in strict compliance with the stated conditions and limitations of evaluation and the applicable local building code. In circumstances where no applicable local building permit is issued and that no confirmation of compliance ‘for use in the intended field application’ is undertaken, this evaluation is null and void in all respects. This evaluation is provided without representation, warranty, or guarantee of any kind, expressed, or implied, and the NRC provides no endorsement for any evaluated material, product, system or service described herein.
