Handmade clay roof tiles from Sahtas provide a traditional finish and can be colour-matched to existing tiles and pantiles
With ever increasing expectations for quality, performance and aesthetics, the Brookhurst range of traditional handmade clay roof tiles from Sahtas UK will satisfy the most demanding specifications.
For a glorious one-for-one new build project in rural Suffolk, an outstanding home surrounded by outbuildings both original and new, the Brookhurst Wentworth clay roof tile was approved for both the house and the 1839 converted tower mill to the rear of the estate. While the 1914 barn has been restored and reclaimed pantiles installed, the adjacent cart lodge is adorned with clay pantiles which were colour matched by Sahtas in Turkey.
Brookhurst tiles are made from the highest quality clay material using traditional hand moulding and coal firing techniques. Whilst these age-old traditions are maintained, Brookhurst tiles meet the highest technical standards and are fully compliant with BS EN 538 and 539 testing for strength, durability and weather protection. These artisan skills have also founded a vast inventory of bespoke designs, intricate and unique shapes, with refined colour matches essential where extensive renovation is undertaken. Sahtas pantiles are manufactured to the same high standard as the Brookhurst roof tile and also available in a range of 12 rich colours.
“The Wentworth gives the feel of a weathered, reclaimed tile with a dark red base and heavy dark weathering that looks old and established,” says a company spokesperson. “We have the capacity to assist clients who have a specific requirement, or where there is a regional bias to meet.”
