Adding to the Rosemary Classic range, Redland has introduced a new clay tile with a distinct purple hue. Heather Brindle is an orange sanded tile with purple brindling ideal for creating striking, decorative roofs. It is a uniquely coloured tile and brings the colours available in the Rosemary Classic range up to nine. There is a full range of matching fittings.
Like the other tiles in the Rosemary range, Heather Brindle can be specified for a minimum pitch of 35° and a maximum pitch of 90°. All Rosemary tiles are produced from the finest clays, adding distinction to pitched roofs.
Heather Brindle is expected to be popular in South and Central regions where more ‘decorative’ tiles are favoured. As a key factor for specification and use in these regions is workability, the clay blend used for Heather Brindle is the ‘easier cutting’ variety.
Redland has a reputation for product innovation and quality. All of its roofing systems comply with British Standards and Building Regulations meaning they will stand the test of time. When Heather Brindle is used as part of a Redland SpecMaster specification, completed roofs qualify for a 15 year design liability guarantee.
