The trend towards plain tile appearance roofs has extended in recent times to clay tiles. In recognition of this, we have launched Fontenelle, an interlocking clay plain tile. 

Following the launch of Fontenelle in colour 82 Brindle, we have extended the range to include two further colours: 79 Black and 80 Red.

The tile range comprises main tiles, Tile-and-a-Halves, Left Hand Verge Tiles and Left Hand Verge Tile-and-a-Halves.

Tile-and-a-Halves are used in alternate courses with main tiles at right hand verges/abutments.

Left Hand Verge Tiles and Left Hand Verge Tile-and-a-Halves are used in alternate courses at left hand verges/abutments.  Tile-and-a-Halves are also used for raking cuts at hips and valleys.

A Fontenelle 4.5k ThruVent Tile is also available.


Fontenelle clay plain tiles conform to BS EN 1304:2013 Clay roofing tiles and fittings - Product definitions and specifications.


Fontenelle clay plain tiles have been rigorously tested in the Group wind tunnel where combinations of high wind and driving rain are used to determine the tile performance with respect to wind loading and weathertightness. Tiles will meet all the requirements of BS 5534: 2014 Code of practice for slating and tiling (including shingles), providing Redland fixing recommendations are complied with.
