Plain Tile Ornamental
With decorative effects being incorporated more frequently into roof designs, we are the only company to offer ornamental plain tiles with a guaranteed performance in all weathers down to 40° pitch. Following extensive testing at our wind tunnel facility, the guarantee is offered across all our plain tile ranges.
Concrete ornamental plain tiles are available in the Club design in all concrete plain tile colours.
Concrete Ornamental Plain Tiles conform to BS EN 490: 2011 Concrete roofing tiles and fittings for roof covering and wall cladding - Product Specifications.
Concrete Ornamental Plain Tiles have been rigorously tested in our 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 our fixing recommendations are complied with.
