The Rosemary name is synonymous with clay plain tiles, adding distinction and character to pitched roofs for over 175 years. Today, a range of single and cross-camber tiles combine the quality of hand-crafted clay with the reliability of modern machine-made techniques. Produced from the finest clays, Rosemary is offered in a range of weathered, brindled and single colours that create striking and attractive roofs.
Plain tiles are small and rectangular in format and have always been 265mm x 165mm (or in fact 10 1/2” x 6 1/2”) in overall size, requiring 60 tiles per square metre. They perform by overlapping densely up to three tiles deep to achieve a watertight layer.
It is this functional requirement that creates their rustic appearance, adding a sense of detail and texture to the roof. This character is enhanced by the effect of cambers longitudinally and across the width.
Roof tiles manufactured from concrete date back to the late nineteenth century and became popular in the UK during the 1920’s when demand for economical roof coverings outweighed the production capacity for clay tiles.
Concrete tile technology has developed tiles capable of being laid to roof pitches as low as 12 degrees. Produced in a variety of colours and finishes, some replicate the appearance of slate and other traditional roof coverings.
Interlocking concrete tiles are one of the most economical forms of roof tiling. Available in a choice of 7 colours and 2 textures, concrete tiles are suitable for roof pitches down to 17.5°.
Today, modern technology has developed products which provide better durability and performance combined with an ever increasing variety of colours and textures, though still maintaining a traditional appearance.
