Offering an affordable alternative for those desiring a shingle roof, the new Visum3 roof tile is exclusive to European-style terracotta roof tile collection - La Escandella Ceramica.

Available in five stunning monotone and duotone colour options, the range features a low profile design with a slim 9mm nose to achieve ultra-flat laying for the ultimate shingle and slate appearance. An innovative triple cambered design gives each tile the appearance of three traditional plain tiles laid side-by-side, to easily achieve a slate finish and feel on any project.

Technology also allows each tile to be coloured individually with realistic ‘pitting’ on the tiles surface, capturing the aesthetic quality of a slate veneer. Advantages include a colour for life warranty, greater durability, lightweight construction, and a revolutionary interlocking design that eases the installation process and ensures excellent water tightness.

Significant energy saving benefits are also achieved thanks to the thermal insulating qualities of terracotta, which manage heat transmission, helping to keep the home cool in summer and warmer in winter. The same mass that contributes to its thermal performance also provides superior sound insulation to reduce unwanted noise from the outside.
