 Useful Resources:

Main Product Ranges:

Centurion® Low Pitch Roof Tiles:

Innovative tiling design and the power of technology have been harnessed to create a low-pitch interlocking roof tile. It is capable of being laid to a rafter pitch of *10 degrees and provides a highly effective barrier against the elements.

Gemini® Interlocking Plain Tiles:

Gemini® are strong lightweight roof tiles which are designed to replicate the aesthetics of plain tiles. The tiles are suitable for pitches down to 22.5º for new or re-roof projects. Available in 10 colours.

Hardrow® Solos™ Roof Slates:

Hardrow® SolosTM Roof Slates offer virtually the same architectural properties as natural stone or slate tiles. Our concrete roof slates are extremely durable and mellow with age. They are made with slight dimensional differences and a degree of camber to enhance the product’s charm when laid.

Hardrow® Duets™ Roof Slates:

Hardrow® DuetsTM Roof Slates are suitable for use in regions where a natural stone slate appearance is required. Our concrete roof slates combine two subtle blends of colour on each tile to provide 10 regional effects.

Hardrow® Harmonies® Slate Roof Tiles:

Hardrow® Harmonies® slate roof tiles are a selected blend of mixed stone colours, each one unique to Hardrow® Slates. This enables you to simplify the specification process. Our through coloured concrete roof slates are available in a wide range of colours. Distinctive roofs can be achieved by blending 3, 4 or 5 different colours together.

Minislate® Roof Tiles:

Minislate® roof tiles are a cost effective alternative to natural roofing slates. A strong, lightweight interlocking concrete product.

Redrow Homes specify Forticrete’s Gemini for luxury housing project

October 2018

Forticrete's award-winning Gemini roof tile has been specified by Redrow Homes (NW) as the tiling solution of choice for its new bespoke enclave of luxury country homes in the village of Stretton in Cheshire.

Sitting adjacent to the stunning golf courses of Carden Park, Redrow's new collection of beautifully crafted luxury homes, Stretton Green, comprises 19 four and five bedroom properties and six affordable homes. Each is built to an individual specification yet carefully designed to sit harmoniously within the local vernacular. Redrow Homes specified Forticrete's innovative Gemini twin interlocking tile in Sunrise Blend and Mixed Russet to complement the development's existing vernacular.

John Daglish, Commercial Director at Redrow Homes (NW), commented: "Our homes at Stretton Green have been inspired by the traditional architectural styles for which this area is renowned. It was important to us that each home had individual character but complimented its existing surroundings.

"The key to successful design is in the detail and our materials, including our roof tiles, were all carefully chosen to convey quality and craftsmanship. We selected Forticrete's tiles as they provided the desired standard of finish befitting of this impressive development."

Forticrete's Gemini interlocking plain tiles have been specifically designed to replicate the look and feel of traditional plain tiles, therefore maintaining the appearance of a traditional plain tile roof. They have 40% less CO2 emissions per m2 roof and improved coverage, using less tiles per m2 making it a much more cost effective solution.

As well as being extremely energy efficient, these next generation roofs tiles are aesthetically pleasing, easy-to- install and high in quality. They have been specifically designed as interlocking tiles which are just 270mm x 337mm overall, yet because of a carefully judged central groove and innovative 'double cambered' design, they have the appearance of two traditional plain tiles side by side when laid, effectively laying two tiles at a time.

They feature increased tile strength and an even stronger, tighter interlock as standard and because they are easy to install, the cost to lay them is also significantly reduced.

Jersey Property Holdings specify Forticrete Hardrow

Jersey Property Holdings Specify Forticrete's Hardrow for New Multi-Million Pound School

Highly durable Hardrow roof slates from Forticrete, the UK's leading manufacturer of concrete roof tiles and slates, have been specified for the construction of a new £5.2 million state-of-the-art building at St Martin's School in St Martin, Jersey.

The stunning new building, which sits on an adjacent site to St Martin's school's previous building, which is now occupied by the Parish of St.Martin, accommodates over 200 students and nursery pupils, in addition to full and part-time staff. Designed to support modern teaching practices and meet the needs and expectations of its pupils, the school's new building features smart LED lighting, under-floor heating, solar panels, a grey-water system, a fully independent amphitheatre and a sensory garden.

As architects for the project, Jersey Property Holdings specified Forticrete's high performance Hardrow roof slates in Forest and Dusk, to create a welcoming, awe-inspiring, yet cost-effective finish that complements the building's rural vernacular.

Mike Higginson, Architect at Jersey Property Holdings, commented: "The school's previous building was too restrictive for pupils and teachers alike. As a result, the new school building was designed to provide pupils with the ideal environment that they would not only work within, but ultimately enjoy and excel in. Therefore, we placed significant importance on sourcing the right materials for the job.

"Forticrete provided us with the ideal solution, helping to deliver the modern and stimulating finish we craved."

Forticrete's Hardrow Slates offer virtually the same architectural properties and aesthetic appeal as natural stone or slate. Formed from concrete, they retain a characteristic that mellows with age and can be laid in broken bond, random widths or diminishing courses for an authentic traditional appearance.
