Break through innovation has combined with a traditional aesthetic to meet the needs of UK architects and specifiers seeking an easy-to-fix clay tile, with the launch of the first-of-its kind Lincoln clay pantile from Marley Eternit.
Lincoln features a classic s-curve profile and thin leading edge, while also benefitting from a unique design making it easier and faster to install than traditional pantiles. In fact, it is as simple to install as a concrete roof tile and can be used to a low minimum roof pitch of just 17.5 degrees, giving Lincoln a great deal of versatility on a wide range of projects where a traditional pantile appearance is required.
The new pantile is available in Rustic Red and Natural Red with a comprehensive range of fittings. The Rustic Red has a subtle weathered appearance which creates a premium reclaimed finish on the roof, suitable for housebuilding and refurbishment projects, where the project may need to match the local vernacular or be subject to local planning conditions. The Natural Red has a smooth, more uniform appearance, with clean lines giving a classic pantile appearance perfect for new housing, commercial and local authority projects.
The Lincoln pantile was developed following extensive research by Marley Eternit, which showed the need for a traditional clay pantile that could be installed quickly and easily on site without the need for specialist roofing skills.
In addition, the tiles can be installed to meet the latest fixing requirements to BS 5534 and the NHBC Technical Standards, using Marley Eternit’s one-piece tile clip, SoloFix, which can save up to 30% roof clipping time compared to traditional fixing.
The Lincoln range is also compatible with Marley Eternit’s Universal systems for a mortar-free low maintenance system to meet the latest fixing requirements or can be installed with Marley Eternit’s Mortar Hip and Ridge fixing kits for more traditional builds.
Sarah Jackson, marketing product manager comments:
“At Marley Eternit we’ve focussed on developing products that are easy and fast to use on site whilst maintaining a traditional aesthetic. The classic curves of the Lincoln, ensures it offers all the rustic beauty expected from a traditional clay pantile, but its modern fix and low pitch capability mean it can be installed on a variety of projects. With changing weather conditions and increased rainfall patterns, the new Lincoln and its comprehensive range of fittings and accessories, provide a high performance pantile range to ensure architects and specifiers can meet the requirements of today’s roofs.”
