Roof tiles should be the crowning glory of a property and any building with style deserves a tile that enhances the aesthetics, delivers high performance protection and extends sustainability of the property. Traditional hand-made clay roof tiles from Sahtas exceed these quality expectations and achieve many desirable aesthetics.

Made in Turkey by the traditional hand-throwing of clay into sand dusted wooden moulds, Sahtas hand-made roof tiles are available in a broad range of ten beautiful colours, many blends, and varied profiles, with the fullest complementary range of ancillary products including ridges, peg tiles, bonnet hips, hanging angles, roof vents – making this one of the most comprehensive hand-made, hi-tech roof tile ranges available.

Traditional moulding techniques are very much complimented by the advanced materials technology applied by Sahtas in their Izmir facility. Varied local clay is used but combined with the latest analytical and raw material processing techniques. Manufacturing is to ISO quality standards and these exceptional roof tiles have an insurance-backed 30-years guarantee to meet independent CERAM tests to BS EN standards for flexural strength, resistance to frost damage and impermeability to water.

Sahtas hand-made roof tiles have been used for many homes and buildings of distinction, meeting tomorrow’s standards, for today’s smartest roofs. This hand-made tile will weather and mellow to achieve a reclaimed appearance in just a short while lending character and individuality to any project.

Sahtas hand-made roof tiles are available from all leading merchants and a network of authorised specialist distributors. Short lead times enable precise and accurate build schedules to be achieved.

The Sahtas Company has been established for several decades to produce earthenware and clay products in Izmir, Turkey. The business is still family owned and operated today. To satisfy customer demand conversion to 100% hand-made earthenware took place earlier this decade which was made possible by investment in the Company’s existing plant and equipment, and in the skills of its workforce. Hand-made facing bricks are also manufactured by Sahtas and distributed worldwide.

Products specified for Potton’s self-build barn include the Sahtas hand-made Weathered facing brick, which has a durability designation of F1, and the Sahtas Restoration hand-made clay roof tile.

Technical, sales information and samples are available from the Sahtas UK Sales Centre in Milton Keynes, tel: 01908 311 411.
