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. 

Designed to shed water efficiently at pitches down to 15°, the Wessex interlocking tile has clean, simple lines and a pleasing minimalist style.
