Clay Roof Tiles

We offer two types of roof tiles Traditional range and Developer one.

Our finest Traditional range has greater colour and much deeper texture, these tiles immediately have the appearance of tiles that have been in place for years.
Developer range is slightly smoother and less textured finish. The Developer range gives a more contemporary feel to any new roof and in the darker shades are perfect to match with old weathered clay tiles for refurbishment projects.

Traditional Range

Description

Our traditional range of handmade clay roof tiles give a stunning look and effect that has stood the test of time for centuries.

Each tile has its own unique style – it has variations in colour, texture and shape that cannot be replicated in any other way. Each tile is lightly sanded to further add to its charm.

The splendour of clay tiles is that they have a beauty that will elegantly weather and mature slowly with age.

Traditional handmade clay tiles are the perfect choice for those undertaking a sensitive project or development where it is essential that the building blends in perfectly with its surroundings.

Technical

All our roof tiles are tested with our in house laboratory facility to meet current British standards – BS EN 538 Flexural strength, BS EN 539-1 Impermeability & BS EN 539-2 Frost resistance, we then further test them independently with Das Keramik Institut, a global expert in material testing and analysis.

Tile Fixing

Traditional Clay Roof Tiles must be laid and fixed to comply with BS 5534: the British Standard Code of practice for slating and tiling, and BS 8000: Part 6: the British Standard Code of practice for workmanship on building sites. The code of practice for tiling and slating also recommends clay tiles should be mixed from three pallets when being loaded out.

*We guarantee our products to a minimum roof pitch of 35 degrees. The British Standard Code of practice for slating and tiling recommends a minimum roof pitch of 40 degrees for handmade tiles.

Wood-Burning Ceramic Stoves

The Traditional Brand is associated mostly with our hand-made roof tiles that charm with their simplicity and natural finish. Creating beautiful architecture is our passion, which is why we are extending our clay products to include hand-made wood burning stoves. Each stove is unique and the co-operation between the artists and manufacturers has resulted in products of marvellous beauty. The traditional appearance and efficient heating technology have been reconstructed to the tiniest detail.

Production allows each detail of the stove to be adjusted to each client’s expectations. The investor can choose any colour, size and detail of the clay. Ceramic is combined with bronze elements and there are four classic variations in ten basic colours. Heat vents on the upper surface of the stove are cut out to resemble organic shapes reminiscent of 19th century aesthetics.

Stoves are simple to install into every kind of interior. Our manufacturer offers the whole service starting from consulting, through to design, installation, start up and stoking training. The installation process only takes a few hours.

Clay Plasters

Gifts of the Earth

The Earth is a rich reservoir of resources, one which mankind has been utilising for thousands of years. Regarding architecture, clay is used as a finishing material but its role is so much more important, as it also gives rise to culture. Throughout our long history, and all around the world, clay has been shaped into myriad forms and structures and has always constituted an expression of creative thought. The notion ‘Earth architecture,’ which also concerns clay plasters, is an allusion to a certain philosophy of building, a historical reference, a symbolic turn towards the historic origins of architecture.

Quality Warranty

Our ready-to-use plasters contain only clay and sand, and if you wish to achieve a specific texture it is possible to add straw, wood chips, mineral additives, etc. Clay itself, in turn, is composed of sandy silt, sand and gravel of varied grain sizes, and uses the so-called Tertiary varicoloured clay (a local variation of clay occurring near Poznań) as the binder. Nature provides it all, right down to the colour.

The Earth’s Unlimited Palette of colours

We do not add any artificial pigments to our plasters. The colours are natural – these are the colours of the Earth, just as they occur in nature. It is possible to mix clays with different colours and thus any secondary colour can be created.

Feel the Difference

Live in an interior with a clay finish

Clay plasters are characterised and distinguished by a number of performance parameters, thanks to which they have a considerable advantage over commonly-used conventional plasters. These are:

  • No ingredients that are harmful to health
  • Regulation of the relative humidity level inside rooms through moisture absorption or desorption, depending on the conditions; this way the interior preserves the optimum atmosphere for our comfort
  • Odour neutralisation
  • Anti-allergic protection and mould elimination
  • Protection of occupants against electromagnetic radiation
  • Possibility to achieve unique surfaces
  • Dirt resistance; clay surfaces do not attract domestic dust even through the long winter months when the radiators are pumped up to the maximum
  • After removal from the wall it is re-usable; simply add water and start afresh

Clay plaster is an environmentally-friendly and renewable material.

Endless possibilities for wall design and structural finishing

The plasticity of clay allows a number of techniques to be used in the creation of different textures: smooth, fine-grained, coarse-grained, or rustic. With the addition of straw, thatch, or wood chips, it becomes a creative wall installation. Clay offers a multitude of possibilities to finish the walls depending on the tool used (trowel, spatula, float), which can additionally be different on their edges or flat surfaces. Or you can simply apply the clay by hand, thus leaving artistic impressions on the walls. With clay you can sculpt, extrude, or apply a selection of ornaments and decorative patterns from prefabricated templates.

Your imagination is the only limit with the best clay plaster finish

Choose, decide, create freely based on an architectural plan of the interior, all so that you can feel most entirely at home. The rest will be done for you through the natural power of clay.
