Imbrex clay roof tile
Pratigliolmi is proposing a roof tile and a bent tile produced with the drawing machine. Beauty, duration, frost-proofing, insulating properties and ease of laying: it is rare to find theses features all together in roofing today. As is known, the Romana Copertura is laid without either grouting or cement. In fact, its stability is guaranteed by the weight of each single tile and the way in which the roofing interconnects.
One thing is certain, the roof represents the most important element of a house and still today the Romana roofing is the most valid and safest answer, offering great aesthetic value as well. Pratigliolmi produces three types: the famous classical Florentine red, a clashing pink, and an antiqued type which is extremely beautiful.
Today a new addition is joining the flanks of this traditional production: the Giubileo tile and bent tile - the first real novelty in this sector in over two thousand years. A drawn tile and a bent tile, which lock into place, interconnecting one to the other. No more sliding bent tiles, birds moving the tiles, or nests underneath. On one hand a novelty, and on the other, full respect for tradition. All modifications are out of sight and the roof, once completed, is identical to the traditional Roman roofing that we all know and love.
