INTRODUCING FONTENELLE: INTERLOCKING PLAIN TILE APPEARANCE IN CLAY

Similar in appearance to Redland’s DuoPlain tile, Fontenelle is a red brindle clay tile. It is designed to give the appearance of a plain tile while benefitting from all the cost and time saving benefits of a contemporary interlocking tile. Fontenelle can be laid at lower pitches than traditional plain tiles, with a lower laid weight due to less tiles being required per sq metre. 

Like DuoPlain, Fontenelle does not require clips to fix – steel nails or screws are the recommending fixing.

Fontenelle is expected to be an attractive proposition for new build housing.   It will appeal to housebuilders who are looking to build plain tile appearance roofs at a minimal cost premium over a typical large interlocking tile, but where planning constraints demand the use of clay.
