Marley Eternit launches mixed brindle clay innovation


Marley Eternit is expanding its market leading clay product range with its latest innovation, a new mixed brindle single camber clay plain tile with unrivalled environmental credentials. The Acme Mixed Brindle has a red brown base and weathered appearance to create a true brindle colour that is ideal for both refurbishments and new builds alike.

The new Acme Mixed Brindle tile has been developed to offer specifiers, contractors and merchants a quality, cost effective, brindle clay plain tile in a traditional single camber. Sarah Jackson, marketing product manager for Marley Eternit, explains: “Each of the new Acme tiles has subtle variations from light to dark, giving them an authentic brindle effect. These subtle mixed brindle clay plain tiles offer wide ranging but delicate differences of hue and colour, so that although every individual tile is different, together they create a harmonious beautiful roof.”

The Acme Mixed Brindle also boasts impressive environmental credentials, with independent carbon certification, a ‘very good’ rating under the BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing standard and an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification.

Sarah Jackson continues: “Using Marley Eternit products offers the combined benefits of up to six environmental credits with the A+ rating and our BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing accreditation of ‘Very Good’ for single camber clay plain tiles. Marley Eternit is the only roofing manufacturer to have verified our carbon footprint with the Carbon Trust for our range of roofing products and Acme single camber clay plain tiles have a carbon footprint of 27.0 CO2e / m2 (based on 100mm gauge).

“In addition, all of our Acme single camber clay plain tiles also have the added advantage that they can be used at pitches as low as 30°, instead of the market standard of 35°.”

The Mixed Brindle is the latest addition to Marley Eternit’s popular clay plain tile range, which now offers a selection of 21 different colours and textures to enable design versatility. A range of fittings, accessories and ventilation products is also available to complement the Acme Mixed Brindle colour.
