The Alban range combines the look of a reclaimed tile with great value for money. There are two colour options available ‘Sussex Blend’ which features a mix of red, brown and black tones, and the ‘Vintage Blend’ offering contrasting shades of red and black.
Alban owes its varied and rustic texture to the recycled foundry sands that are carefully pressed into the tile’s surface during tile making. Once dried, the tiles are set into the kiln by hand, using special U cassettes which fire the tiles vertically. This further adds to their character as it results in each tile adopting a slightly different shape during firing. This process is managed in such a way that it allows random irregularities in shape to occur without compromising on the tile’s weatherproofing performance.
Alban creates its own look on look on the roof and offers the specifier, homeowner or builder a range of benefits.
