Ventilating roof tile
These are medium-sized tiles, of excellent proportions, which achieve an aesthetic effect in itself very similar to the traditional Portuguese roofs (concave tile).
They are rather easy to lay and there is a vast range of accessories available, which enables a good adjustment to any kind of architectural style, i.e., modern or traditional.
This model comes naturally from the previous model Portuguese T Plus, already known by its qualities such as:
RESISTENCE, this is due to the high baking temperature (about 1050 ºC);
FINE COLOUR, because of both the careful selection of pulp and the high baking temperature;
EXCELLENT FINAL AESTHETIC EFFECT, because of both the careful selection of pulp and the high baking temperature;
The new model has other advantages apart from those mentioned above:
LESS NUMBER OF TILES REQUIRED FOR EACH SQUARE METRE (12,3 tiles/m2 as opposed to 13,2 tiles/m2 in the previous tiles), which naturally reduces the costs of each square metre;
HE FITTINGS have a better longitudinal and transversal clearance enabling a less demanding size of the chantlate, in terms of angle plate and distance between the shingles. Thus, it also means less labour force needed because the working time needed is also less;
QUICKER LAYING, due to the two aspects mentioned before and, consequently, the costs for each square metre are reduced;
A WIND-MILL IS SET on the top of the concave tile which intends to conceal the "collar" of the previous tile. A better visual effect is therefore achieved;
