Turning a dream into reality
What started, literally as a dream, has now become a reality. When retired co-founder Bernhard Podirsky witnessed a devastating storm, he dreamt that night of the hook and batten fixing system, designed as tiles installed on tracks – hence the name ‘Tractile’. Co-founder Jason Perkins pioneered integrating solar energy and hot water generation into Tractile, creating the most complete and technologically advanced roofing product on the market.
