For over 100 years, the FBM brand has been identified as “roofing tiles”, which therefore re-presents the traditional and most consolidated strength of the company.The range of FBM clay roof tiles is particularly wide and articulated with more than 100 certi-fied products, available in many colors and in many nuances and shades.The extraordinary performance of these materials, guaranteed for at least ten years by the certification of the Quality System according to the UNI EN ISO 9001 and compliant with all environmental requirements according to the UNI EN ISO 14001, are the result of a long and complex manufacturing process that begins since the selection of clays.Careful research, modern technologies, fully automated production processes, subjected to continuous checks and updates, allowed FBM to make these materials able to tolerate temperatures so low that they can be used even in the most severe climatic zones.The Marsciano plant, the largest in Italy and among the largest in the world, is the manu-facturing pole of FBM roof tiles. These are available in a wide range of colors, ranging from dough colors to surface treatments with powder oxides and liquids that give an effect of natural aging to the tile, obtained through exclusive and sophisticated applications, able to harmonize the tiles both in new roofs and in the restoration of roofs of particular historical-architectural value.
All the tiles, bent tiles and special pieces have a frost resistance certified with the strict UNI EN 539-2 test E method, corresponding to the strict regulations adopted in Northern European countries.The certification obtained is not only binding for the use of these products in the countries of northern Europe, known for the extremely severe building regulations, but once again cer-tifies that the FBM products are the most suitable to be used also in presence of particularly adverse climatic conditions.From 2015 FBM marks further progress in its range: unique in Italy to produce a tile with plaster molds, the Enzo.This innovative technology makes it possible to obtain a perfect tile from all points of view and to further increase the quality level of FBM covers.From 2019 FBM introduces as an absolute novelty for the Italian market: the pressing system with steel molds, which allows to obtain a superior quality, with an incredible smooth surface, much more accurate and aesthetically more refined.
