Cathedral Clay Pantiles

Clay tiles and pantiles specified for housing development

  • 30 Sep 2016

Redland’s Cathedral Clay Pantiles and Postel Clay Tiles have been specified to roof Fosters Croft, a family housing development in a conservation area.

Based in the village of Hatfield near Doncaster, the new development was faced with stringent planning requirements. Hatfield is a conservation area, which is home to many traditional buildings, dating back to the 18th century and constructed from handmade brick.

These conditions restricted the developer, Mell Homes, from specifying concrete tiles to roof the new three and four bedroom properties. As an alternative, Redland’s clay tiles and pantiles were chosen for installation.

Working closely with BC Tiling, Mell Homes specified Cathedral Clay Pantiles for the two detached four-bedroom homes. Postel Clay Tiles were specified for the two semi-detached cottages, which have a complex structure consisting of three ridges.

Cathedral Clay Pantiles are precision manufactured with clay technology; they have been designed to combine the performance of a contemporary interlocking roofing tile with the appearance of a traditional natural clay product. They are available in two shades, which mature over time.

The pantiles are suitable for roof pitches as low as 22.5°.

Redland’s Postel Clay Tile is modelled on the famous Courtrai tile, which was imported into Britain from Belgium in the 20th century. Many housing estates in the South East of England were covered with these tiles at the time; when it comes to re-roofing these buildings, the Postel Clay Tile provides an ideal solution.
