Developer Range

Description

Our Developer range of handmade clay tiles is perfect for a variety of roofing projects.

Whether you are building a high end, prestigious development of luxury properties or an individual dwelling, each and every property warrants the use of the best products available within budget.

All our tiles are suitable for new builds or for the purpose of making sure your project blend’s in sensitively with its surroundings.

The splendour of clay is that it has a beauty that will elegantly weather and mature slowly with age.

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 Ceram, a global expert in material testing and analysis, approved by both UKAS and the British standards institute.

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.

On site Safety: Pallets should be offloaded onto firm level ground.
