When Redland needed to replace its manufacturing pallets for the Pantile product, it took the opportunity to make some important improvements.
The Fenland Pantile more closely imitates single clay pantiles by introducing a significantly thinner leading edge, effectively 7mm thinner than its previous incarnation.
At the same time, new production facilities allowed Redland to revise its packaging – introducing a new stacking system and secure spin-wrapped packaging in order to minimise damage in transit.
Fenland Pantiles are available in a range of seven colours with the most recent addition being a Black colour developed in response to the very specific requirements of East Anglia.
