To achieve this shade the tiles are manufactured using a grey through-coloured concrete over which an acrylic paint finish is applied to all surfaces. The result is a much deeper and darker grey than that achieved with pigmentation alone.
This year has seen Redland launch a number of tiles in the Charcoal Grey colour following a rise in demand. The addition of this colour to the Plain Tile range means small roofs such as bays and porches, along with vertical tiling, can now be tiled in a colour that matches interlocking tiles on a main roof.

With prevalent high winds in excess of 130mph on the Orkney Islands, a solution was required that could withstand these elements when it came to roofing a new facility for elderly and vulnerable members of the community. The BMI Redland Mini Stonewold Slate was chosen due to its strength, robustness and appearance of natural slate.
