Home / News / Newsletter 16 - WHY THE NEW 'LARGE'ROOF TILE OFFERS AN EXCELLENT BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY !!

'Large' type roof tiles are becoming more and more in demand in the international building industry with very much interest coming from emerging nations who are recognising the advantages offered by this new product type.

The 'Large' 560 x 330mm sized tile provides a roof coverage of 7 tiles/m2 compared with a 10 tile/m2 coverage offered by the 'Traditional' 420 x 330mm sized tile. This increase in tile size offers the following advantages:

  • - Faster roof fixing
  • - 20% reduction in roof weight
  • - Improved ventilation
  • - Lower cost of roofing per m2

In response to this new market demand for 'Large' roof tiles, Vortex Hydra can now offer a 'Continuous Action' tile manufacturing system in addition to the existing 'Stop/Start' lower volume UNO 900 production system. The 'Continuous' tile machine with its double pusher action can manufacture both traditional and large size tiles at a production rate of up to 60 tiles per minute. This new innovated production process of manufacturing 'Large' roof tiles has proven to be very successful with regard to both high product quality and a reduction in manufacturing costs.
