Inspirational clay from Marley Eternit

Marley Eternit is demonstrating the inspirational roof designs that can be achieved with its range of clay plain tiles through the launch of a new brochure and interactive flipbook for architects and specifiers.

With the widest range of UK manufactured clay plain tiles on the market, Marley Eternit is launching the new brochure and flipbook to showcase the versatility of clay as a roofing material, as well providing the tools and support to make design and specification as straight forward as possible. This includes a design detailing section for key features such as turrets, eyebrow dormers, curved roofs and vertical tiling, as well as access to a range of technical support, including a library of CAD drawings and specification tools such as Tilefix and Specrite.

The new clay inspiration brochure and flipbook contain details of Marley Eternit’s extensive range of colour, texture and camber options. They also demonstrate how the tiles can be used to create beautiful clay roofs across different building sectors, adding traditional charm to heritage and refurbishment projects or contemporary character to modern designs.

Sarah Jackson, marketing product manager for Marley Eternit, commented:

“The beauty of our clay plain tile range is that there are so many different options, so architects and specifiers can choose the exact blend and texture tiles to create a variety of unique roof finishes. Our Hawkins range includes traditional brindles and Staffordshire blues and our Ashdowne handcrafted range has all the aesthetics of a handmade tile, but is easier to install on site and generates less waste.

We are also the only manufacturer to offer a double camber tile, through our Acme range, which helps to create highly textured roofscapes. Our single camber Acme tile offers a more affordable option, thanks to advances in our clay technology, which means it is now a real option for housing projects.

Marley Eternit’s heritage is in clay tiles, as we have been manufacturing them for over 150 years. We have launched the new brochure and interactive flipbook because we wanted to demonstrate not only our range but also the technical support and design expertise that we have available to help lighten the load of roofing specification. From creating bespoke NBS, BIM or CAD details, to delivering urgent samples, we can provide all of the technical support to help design the perfect roof.”

The new clay inspiration brochure and flipbook also contain details of additional environmental credits that can be achieved using Marley Eternit’s range of clay tiles, which have the ability to achieve an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification and provide the maximum credits through BES 6001 towards BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes. In fact, Marley Eternit is the only roofing manufacturer to have verified the carbon footprint of its clay tiles with the Carbon Trust and the carbon footprint of every tile is detailed in the new brochure for the first time.

Marley Eternit’s investment in clay tile manufacturing means that it has the widest range of UK manufactured colours on the market and an unrivalled choice of fittings and accessories. To view the flipbook online, or download a copy of the brochure, please visit
