Sandtoft expands its New Generation range to support the social housing market
Sandtoft, a Wienerberger brand, has announced the expansion of its New Generation range of products in February 2014. With a superior interlocking finish and flexibility, the range is perfect for a wide range of projects.
The introduction of the new tiles sees three new tiles added to the Sandtoft portfolio: the Vauban, Modula and Actua. Each tile is available in a variety of colours and made in natural clay for its sustainability and beauty, and as they are 30% lighter than concrete they will fast become a key product for strip and re-tiling projects.
The Vauban’s variable gauge makes it fast, easy and economical to fix, whilst the thin leading edge gives an attractive finish at lower roof elevations, and as it is designed to perform down to pitches of 22.5°, it is more flexible for projects such as extensions, porches. The Vauban is lighter than clay plain tiles and there is no need for 60 tiles to a square metre making it easier and quicker to fit with no need for structural enhancement
The Modula clay double roman is a large format tile, which gives a covering capacity which matches the largest concrete tile, of only 9.7 tiles per square metre. The open gauge design of the tile ensures that the Modula is quick and efficient to install to a minimum pitch of 17.5°
The Actua is an interlocking clay tile that gives a clean contemporary look, and can perform down to pitches as low as 22.5°. The variable gauge and larger format make it easy and economical to fix, whilst the curved leading edge and interlocking design gives maximum protection against wind driven rain.
All three tiles are manufactured in energy efficient kilns to comply with the requirements of BS EN 1304, and also meet the requirements of BS 5534.
