BMI UK & Ireland – the UK’s largest manufacturer of flat and pitched roofing and waterproofing solutions – is setting new standards in interlocking profiled clay tiles with the introduction of the BMI Redland Hollander Clay Pantile.
With a Dutch design heritage harking back to the 17th century; clay pantiles featured amongst the most eye-catching roof tile profiles available, producing a striking and attractive roof.
The Hollander Clay Pantile replaces the company’s popular Cathedral Clay Pantile, offering several design and manufacturing enhancements over its predecessor.
The increased headlap variation, now up to 30 mm, gives more laying flexibility, a second nib provides greater tile stability and a second nail hole means more roofs can be just nailed rather than clipped.
However, if clipping is needed, a completely new interlock allows the use of the company’s award-winning tool-free Innofix Clip.
Precision manufactured using the latest clay technology, Hollander combines the character of a natural clay product with the performance benefits of a modern interlocking tile, enabling this distinctive look to be achieved at roof pitches as low as 22.5°.
As well as its attractive profile, the Hollander Clay Pantile comes in two classic colours: Red and Brindle.
The Hollander Clay Pantile gives developers, contractors, specifiers and local authorities the opportunity to roof and re-roof in clay cost-effectively requiring only 12.5 tiles per square metre, delivering significant planning advantages, especially in conservation areas or where the vernacular architecture demands.
Overall dimensions of the pantile are 420 x 265mm, with a cover width of 225mm. There are a whole host of compatible fittings and components available – including Cloaked Verges, Left-hand Verge Tiles and 4.5k ThruVent Tile – meaning the tiles can be laid on a variety of roof configurations
As with all BMI Redland roofing products, the Hollander Clay Pantiles has been subject to rigorous freeze-thaw, wind-uplift and strength tests, not only going through the company’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel but also subjected to high wind and driving rain to test the tiles’ performance in terms of weathertightness.
These tests demonstrate the tiles meet all requirements of BS 5534: 2014 + A2: 2018 Code of Practice for Slating and Tiling, as long as they are installed in compliance with BMI Redland fixing recommendations.
