A concrete plain tile featuring variation in hanging length, irregular sides and subtle surface texturing finished with randomly applied fine sands which combine to create all the visual features of a handmade clay tile but at a fraction of the cost.
The range of colours has been carefully developed to offer real alternatives to the leading handmade clay tiles in the market.
And, as well as the quality, cost saving and aesthetic benefits, Heathland tiles embody far less CO2 than their clay tile equivalents; good looks that cost you and the environment less.
Heathland Plain Tiles conform to BS EN 490: 2011 Concrete roofing tiles and fittings for roof covering and wall cladding - Product Specifications.
Variation in hanging length and linear cover is a purpose designed feature of this tile and therefore the relevant clauses of BS EN 490 do not apply.
Heathland Plain Tiles have been rigorously tested in the Group wind tunnel where combinations of high wind and driving rain are used to determine the tile performance with respect to wind loading and weathertightness. Tiles will meet all the requirements of BS 5534: 2014 Code of practice for slating and tiling (including shingles), providing Redland fixing recommendations are complied with.

FixMaster is a guaranteed tile and batten fixing specification service tailored to individual roof designs. It's Redland's high technology solution to incorrect fixing providing the most cost-effective specification to comply with British Standards.
As no two roofs are the same, FixMaster takes into account all variable factors including roof geometry, location and products used. A full assessment is made of any nearby tall structures, natural topographical features or, in the case of airports in the locality, pressures generated by aircraft trailing wake vortices.
