Sandtoft Alban Plain Tile
Size - 265 x 165 mm
With its lightly sanded texture, irregular form and rustic tones, the Alban plain tile adds charm and character to any roof.
Made from Sandtoft’s extensive clay reserves formed from the alluvial plain of the river Humber over 10,000 years ago, the Alban plain tile harnesses the generations of experience Sandtoft have for creating highly durable clay tiles.
Alban is carefully sanded using recycled foundry sands that are pressed into the tile, creating a varied and rustic surface texture. Once dried the tiles are set into the kiln by hand and fired vertically which further adds to their character as it results in each tile adopting a slightly different shape during firing.
