Mendip interlocking tiles can now perform at extended rafter lengths:

15° - 17.5° pitch with a rafter length up to 10m will require a 100mm headlap

17.5° pitch and above with a rafter length up to 10m will require a 75mm headlap

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).

*Please note* The British Standard for Slating and Tiling (BS 5534) has recently been updated, making significant changes to tile fixing requirements. To ensure that your roof is compliant to the new standard, our fixing specification service is available.

A double pantile design with elegant flowing lines, instant visual appeal and exceptional strength. Performing at pitches as low as 15°, and available in 7 stylish colours, the Mendip interlocking tile is a popular choice with discerning specifiers and builders alike.
