DS.19 roof shingle

Large format, lightweight and practical to install

read more

The DS.19 roof shingle is not only a visual highlight, it can be installed starting at a roof pitch of only 17 degrees, setting new standards in this product segment.

At 480 × 262 mm, the DS.19 is slightly larger than the classic PREFA roof shingle and can therefore be installed even faster and more efficiently. Only eight pieces of DS.19 are required per m², and that with a (light) weight of just 2.75kg/m².

The lightweight aluminium roof shingle DS.19 shows its strengths from the smallest area to the largest project. With their fold-in-fold system an, the DS.19 roof shingles, like all PREFA roof products, prove to be enormously storm-proof and weather-resistant. Thanks to the special design, they are also at their best visually.

The DS.19 roof shingles are suitable for classic-traditional roof structures, but they can also be used to create exciting contrasts in modern architecture.

Do you have any further questions about the DS.19 roof shingle?

It would be great if we could give you an overall price here or tell you that a roof tile or façade single costs such and such an amount. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple because each PREFA roof and façade needs to be carefully calculated by a specialist installer. Our professional roofers will give you an individual quote, tailored precisely to your requirements and the local conditions in which your house is located.

The standard ÖVE/ÖNORM EN 62305-3, which applies in Austria, serves as the basis for this regulation. Country-specific standards and regulations must therefore be taken into account.

Thanks to their light weight, PREFA roof tiles, shingles and rhomboid roof tiles, FX.12 roof panels are ideal for covering existing old roofs.

Small hail stones cannot damage a PREFA roof with a stucco surface. In the case of extremely large hail stones, as with all roofing materials, functional damage cannot be excluded. However, even in an extreme hail storm, the piercing of a PREFA roof can almost certainly be ruled out.

Aluminium materials are largely corrosion-resistant and rust-free!

Expert tip: The sound-absorbing strip makes the DS.19 roof shingle quieter

Aluminium roofs are quieter than their reputation would have you believe. Everyone perceives noise differently. To keep noise levels to a minimum, the DS.19 roof shingle has a noise-insulating strip (FD.TEC)already attached to it’s back. For even more comfort in residential buildings, we recommend additionally using a thicker separation layer.

Technical information


coil-coated aluminium, 0.7 mm thick

Standard finish



480×262 mm (cover), i.e. 8 pc./m²


approx. 2.75 kg/m²

Minimum roof pitch

17° (approx. 31%)

Supporting substrate and separation layer*

On fully boarded substrate (at least 24 mm), a separation layer is required for roof pitches between 17° and 25°; with snow loads greater than 3.25 kN/m² or in terrain categories 0, I or II, fully boarded substrate with a separation layer is required.

* Observe country-specific standards and specialist guidelines.

Standard fastening

indirect fastening, 1 PREFA patent clip and ring nail per DS.19 shingle (i.e. 8 PREFA patent clips and ring nails per m²)

Roof build up

PREFA aluminium roofs ideally have a ventilated build up, where the roof cover and thermal insulation  is separated by a ventilated gap. This means any occasional condensation can be wicked away.

For the most part, the roof  is ventilated, as can be seen in the first picture. However, the entire attic can be ventilated too (image on right).
