SIGnature Clay Tiles are available in three distinct ranges, complimented by a full range of clay fittings including ridge and valley tiles, bonnet hips and angles for vertical tile hanging.
SIGnature Handmade Clay Tiles
Handmade in the traditional fashion, each tile is moulded by hand to achieve a camber; and it’s this element of craftsmanship that gives the clay tile its characterful, highly-individual look that successfully brings an old world charm to any building. The character and aesthetic of warm rich colour blends, together with varying texture and shape, ensures total versatility in their use, from restoration, refurbishment or contemporary new build.
The tiles are complimented by a full range of handmade clay fittings including ridge and valley tiles, bonnet hips and angles for vertical tile hanging.
Holmbury Blend is a dark sanded plain tile with orangey red undertones, handmade and kiln fired from selected clay reserves to ensure distinctive tints and tones of colour, resulting in a naturally blended appearance.
Chartham Red is a warm red sanded plain tile which displays subtle shade variations, creating a deep, mellow and naturally occurring colour, resultant from the selected clay and customary firing processes and techniques, used during production.
Henley Weathered is a dark sanded plain tile with a smokey brown colour, handmade and kiln fired with distinctive tints and tones of colourthat result in a naturally blended appearance.
SIGnature Hand Crafted Clay Tiles
With hand crafted clay tiles, the process is automated up until just before the tiles are fired. At this point they are taken off the line and finished by hand to replicate a rustic sand faced or smooth faced texture. Naturally colourfast and durable, the production process is not as labour intensive as handmade versions thereby offering a more cost-effective way to emulate the traditional and much admired look.
Vintage is a solid smokey dark brown hand crafted tile with a slightly sanded finish, ideal to create a weathered appearance on the roof.
SIGnature Machine Made Clay Tiles
Commonly used in both contemporary and traditional builds, machine made tiles hold their hue and actually mature with age. SIGnature machine made tiles are capable of meeting the aesthetic and performance demands of all types of roofing applications, whilst giving very high levels of durability. Less labour intensive than handcrafted or handmade clay tiles, machine made clay tiles are perfectly suited to the more cost conscious project.
Village Blend is a varying dark coloured smooth plain tile with random textured patterns, recreating the appearance of a rustic or weathered roof finish, ideal to stand alongside any existing mature building.
Sherwood: A charming combination of browns and reds, the Sherwood Tile is brindled with black accent running through. With a lightly granulated texture, the Sherwood gives a slight pre-weathered appearance.
