Sandtoft 20/20 Interlocking Clay Roof Tile
The innovative Sandtoft 20/20 interlocking clay roof tile makes a clay plain tile roof more affordable through an innovative design that will reduce labour and material costs, and cut completion times.
These benefits also translate into a significant reduction of CO2 emitted per roof because CO2 emissions are proportional to the tonnage of clay extracted, processed, dried and fired. The design of the Sandtoft 20/20 means less material is used compared to traditional plain tiles and therefore a corresponding saving in the CO2 emitted per roof is achieved.
In addition choosing the Sandtoft 20/20 interlocking clay roofing tile cuts the number of battens required per m2 of roof area by 60% further reducing the use of materials and lorry movements. When this reduction is combined with Sandtoft's use of 100% green electricity, 20/20 has the capacity to reduce the carbon footprint of a roof by a massive 50%!
The Sandtoft 20/20 is not only cost effective it will also perform down a minimum pitch of 15 degrees.
With the Sandtoft 20/20 it is now possible to complement clay plain tile roofs (which have a minimum pitch of 35 degrees) with a natural roof covering on the low pitch elevations.
The 20/20 is also available in a natural slate colour (Antique Slate) which enables it to complement natural slate roofs.
Manufactured from natural alluvial clay, using the latest ceramic technology, the 20/20 is a high performance interlocking clay tile that has been designed to withstand extreme weather conditions.
Following extensive wind tunnel testing the minimum pitch of the 20/20 is a very low 15 degrees at 100mm headlap. This low pitch performance means that the 20/20 provides the perfect solution for low pitch extension work.
