INSTALLATION GUIDE

Sahtas Brookhurst handmade clay roof tiles are made by applying the granular sand mix to the natural clay surface.

Owing to the softer granulation, these tiles will weather and mellow rapidly, aging and giving the impact of a matured roof in a very short time.

Sahtas Brookhurst handmade clay roof tiles perfectly emulate our genuine hand made tiles, making these ideal for larger multiple projects where costing has to be reduced.

Offering great value with high performance specs, Sahtas Brookhurst roof tiles are competitively priced.

The slight variations in size, camber and texture are the distinctive features of this collection.

Due to the special workflow of Sahtas, combining traditional techniques with the latest surface, pigment, aging, shade and structural researches, unlimited color, shade and texture combinations are available.

Technical specifications for peg tiles (Click to view)

Sahtas Peg Tiles are manufactured in a similar way to the plain tiles except they have no nibs, are slightly smaller and flatter, and have large square nail/peg holes. The name “Peg Tile” is derived from its method of fixing as originally (as far back as Roman times) these tiles would have been hung with wooden pegs pushed through the peg hole and hooked over the battens.

Nowadays, they are often nailed into the battens for added security or a larger diameter alloy clout nail is used to hook over the batten. We normally keep stocks of Multi, Restoration, Orange, Red, Classic Weathered and Classic Brown Pegs and the associated fittings; but they are available in any colour to order.

The samples tested comply with Category 1
If 20 hours is indicated giving a coefficient of 0.00 this is equivalent to no drops of water noted throughout the 20 hour time period of the test. It is stated within clause 4.4.1 of BSEN 1304 that tiles classified as Category 1 shall have a mean impermeability coefficient after testing of 0.8 or less, and all individual results shall be 0.85 or less Catergory 2 shall have a mean impermeability coefficient after testing of 0.925 or less, and all individual results shall be 0.95 or less. Tiles or fittings for roofs classified in Category 2 shall only be used with watertight roofing underfelt.

CLAY ROOFING TILES – TEST FOR FROST RESISTANCE FOR DISCONTINUOUS LAYING DETERMINATION OF PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

BS EN 539 Part 2 Test for Frost Resistance 2013

TEST PROCEDURE

Saturation of Tiles
The samples were dried at 110°C, weighed and examined for existing defects, then progressively immersed in water over a period of 5 days. After the tiles are fully immersed they are then left to soak for a further 72 hours, then they are removed and weighed. The water absorption results are given in Table 2.

Freeze/Thaw Tests
The tiles were tested according to the method described in BS EN 539-2: 2013 European Single Test Method using the apparatus illustrated in that standard. The tiles were examined at 30, 90 and 150 cycles.
