The authentic, traditional design of the Marley plain tile gives it a clean, classic look, rivalled only by its outstanding versatility. The plain tile is especially suitable for details such as dormers, eyebrows and conical roofs, as well as vertical cladding. This popular concrete plain tile comes in both smooth face and granular finishes, and a range of nine attractive colours.
All of our concrete interlocking tiles can achieve an 'A+' rating (which has the lowest environmental impact) in the Building Research Establishment's Green Guide to Specification.
Accreditation to the BES 6001 framework standard for Responsible Sourcing means that projects using our concrete interlocking slates can now achieve extra credits under BREEAM and the Home Quality Mark (HQM).
