La Escandella Ceramica – Planum Range of Flat Terracotta Roof Tiles
Aesthetics and functionality are brought together in the Planum range, a collection of tiles that combines a traditional roofing material with contemporary architectural style.
The Planum range offers numerous advantages including:
The Planum tile is made from kiln fired clay, a natural material that has been used in roof construction for thousands of years. Planum’s durable clay material and colourfast finish ensures the tiles will not only look good but will protect your home for generations to come.
Because they’re made from clay that has been kiln fired at extreme temperatures, Planum colours will not change significantly over the life of the product.
Due to their high mass, Planum tiles are great at insulating buildings from exterior noise such as heavy rain, hail, traffic, aircraft.
Roof tiles can be easily reused by removing them from one roof and installing them on another.
Planum’s profile produces a shingled roof appearance and its clean, sleek lines create an understated roof line that’s perfect for traditional and contemporary projects. Colours range from contemporary browns and light greys, to dark greys and a stunning glazed black.
Applications for Planum Spanish Terracotta Roof Tiles
Planum tiles can be fitted to roofs that are constructed between a 15° and 90° pitch with sarking as a mandatory requirement for all roofs fitted.
Planum Colours and Finishes
The Planum flat terracotta roof tile is available in a range of monotone, aged (or pre weathered) and glazed finishes.
Monotone colours range from a contemporary brown and striking orange to a dark slate grey - traditionally a favourite with Australian home builders.
The aged finish creates the appearance of a weathered roof using a new roof tile. This effect is achieved by applying an enzyme to the tile surface which results in an eye catching mottled finish.
The glazed tile is available in a monotone black which is both beautiful and sophisticated. While the black tile is simple and understated, the glazed finish makes for a striking roof line which shimmers depending on external illumination.
The Planum tile is made from fine clays which results in an exceptionally smooth, clean finish. With its superior quality and its range of colours and finishes, it’s not surprising that the La Escandella Planum range is quickly becoming the most popular flat terracotta roof tile in Australia.
