Details

Each tile is made with finest quality alluvial clay from the alluvial plains of the river Humber. These extensive natural reserves have been used and managed for generations to produce highly durable clay tiles in rich colours and textures. Working to strict environmental standards our clay pits are periodically restored as wetland habitats, two of which are now registered as sites of special scientific interest (SSSI).

The real character in a handmade plain tile comes from the way the tile is handled by the maker. Each of our craftsmen does things slightly differently in a way that makes the tiles unique, and which in turn makes every roof unique.

Drawing on more than a century of experience, Sandtoft clay tiles have been designed to be resistant to the UK climate throughout their lifetime. Our tiles are tested way beyond the limits of the latest frost standard.

For specifiers choosing materials with the environment in mind the Goxhill is made from 100% green electricity using raw clay sourced immediately adjacent to the manufacturing facility. The switch to renewable energy has been accompanied by a number of initiatives to reduce energy usage such as recycling heat from our kilns to dry the tiles and an investment in the latest ceramic tile making technology. These changes have enabled us to reduce our total CO2 emissions by more than 40%, using 2001 as our base year.

The Goxhill will also offer significant environmental benefits over similar products imported from Eastern Europe which, on average, require an extra half tonne of CO2 per roof in their transportation to the UK.
Plain tiles are small and rectangular in format and have always been 265mm x 165mm (or in fact 101/2 " x 61/2 ") in overall size, requiring 60 tiles per square metre. They perform by overlapping densely up to three tiles deep to achieve a watertight layer.

It is this functional requirement that creates their distinctive detailed appearance, adding a sense of detail and texture to the roof. This character is enhanced by the effect of cambers longitudinally and across the width. Plain tiles can be machine made or handmade, the latter creating the classic rustic appearance.
