The distinctive heritage look is achieved through coating the top surface and leading edge of the tile with a clear acrylic coating and fine granules during the manufacturing process. This is the first colour in the Fenland Pantile range to have a sanded finish and is particularly suited to the private refurb, maintenance and home improvement market across the UK.
Half and Third Round fittings for ridges, monoridges and hips along with a ThruVent and Ridge Vent, have also been launched to accompany the new tile.
The classic single pantile shape combined with the modern interlocking concrete format of the Fenland Pantile range guarantees robust, weathertight performance in all conditions. The range is a natural successor to the distinctive single clay pantiles that characterise so much of the south-west and eastern parts of England.
