About Tractile

Tractile is dedicated to identifying and developing improved sustainable building systems and materials globally. We have a vision to create energy efficient homes built with purpose and style. We are an Australian-based company and our focus includes:

Turning a dream into reality

What started, literally as a dream, has now become a reality. When Tractile founder Jason Perkins dreamt one night of tiles being blown off roofs, it led him to develop and patent a cyclone proof roof tile. Integrating solar energy and hot water generation along the way, Tractile has quickly become the most complete and technologically advanced roofing product on the market.
