Flat lock tiles by RHEINZINK

Many different interests must be reconciled when planning and executing construction projects. The conflict between high-quality facade design and cost-effective implementation is ever present, for example. Planners can only present end results with which their clients are more than happy if they can satisfy these competing demands using suitable products, such as RHEINZINK flat lock tiles. One especially flexible facade system made by RHEINZINK is the flat lock tile. It is used successfully in all kinds of areas thanks to its flexible dimensions and possible applications.

Features of RHEINZINK flat lock tiles

During planning, creativity is often limited by financial considerations. Accordingly, the aim is to get the most out of the available budget. In cases such as these, flat lock tiles are always a good choice, as are our other facade systems. Our flat lock tiles:

  • Are visually striking
  • Feature rhombic patterns of various shapes and sizes
  • Can be individually adapted to any project and plan
  • Can form geometric components with complex shapes
  • Are attached indirectly with concealed fasteners
  • Guarantee low costs and durability thanks to quick and secure assembly

Our flat lock tiles are used to cover entire large facades, as a visual highlight or as a distinctive design feature. They can be employed for a huge range of different projects. Take a look at our references and design suggestions. You will find an interesting mixture of new constructions and refurbishment projects in which flat lock tiles were employed.

Flat lock tiles are a modern facade system but it is not unusual to see them used to refurbish older buildings. For instance, roofs and facades of grand buildings can be repaired with these contemporary flat lock tiles without losing any of the structure's historical charm. This is made possible by our extensive programme of different components and modules from our flat lock tile range.

Flat lock tiles by RHEINZINK make a difference

Flat lock tiles have already been used for facade systems for many years and are correspondingly tried and tested. Nevertheless, RHEINZINK does not simply deliver a finished product. Instead, the product is geared specifically towards the requirements of successful architects and planners. In addition to our products of outstanding quality, our team is on hand at all times.

We provide attractive brochures containing superb application examples, checklists and parts lists for your internal planning. Naturally, we will also provide you with all information on the employed system technology online so that you can always formulate your plans carefully and comprehensively.

Flat lock tiles planning and application

System description

  • Simple fitted seam technology
  • Indirect, stress-free attachment using clips or clip rolls
  • Direct installation on softwood boarding or RHEINZINK VAPOwall
  • Direct installation on metal substructures (e.g. trapezoidal profiles)

In contrast to panels or shingles, tiles have forward folding tabs on the top and fold-backs on the bottom that enable them to be attached to fitted seam systems. They are attached indirectly to the substructure using clips or clip rolls.

Flat lock tiles can be produced from sheet material in all variations and recommended dimensions.

Dimensions and metal thickness

  • Construction widths up to 600 mm *
  • Construction length up to 3000 mm (optimum ≤ 2000 mm) *
  • Metal thicknesses 0.7 mm/0.8 mm/1.0 mm

Flat lock tiles are custom-produced for every property in the desired or required construction widths and lengths.

* Larger dimensions available on request.

Customised forms

  • Concave and convex rounded tiles
  • Tiles in different geometric forms

Small tiles can easily be adapted to rounded building plans. If larger formats are used, it can be necessary to pre-round the tiles, depending on the tile dimensions and radius of the building.

Tiles can be produced in different geometric forms, e.g. trapezoidal or hexagonal.

If using these tiles, please contact our application technology department or your responsible field service consultant.


The stability of RHEINZINK tiles has been proven using wind suction tests in line with ETAG 006 test criteria. The maximum possible construction width of flat lock tiles and required metal thickness is determined by the wind load to which the building is subjected. We provide optimised clips and clip rolls for flat lock tiles. The individual clips (50 mm wide) and/or clip rolls (600 mm wide) are selected and arranged based on tile size and wind load.
