Is My Tile Discontinued

One of the biggest problems faced by roofers and home owners alike is tracking down tiles needed for repairs. This problem is exacerbated even further if the tile you’re looking for isn’t even made anymore.

To help speed up the process we have comprised a list of the most commonly found discontinued tiles on  the Isle of Wight.

Redland Delta

What it looks like:

The Redland Delta has a very distinct appearance with it being much large than most concrete tiles as well as having a slanted ridge running through the centre.

Technical:

  • Dimensions: 430mm x 380mm
  • Minimum Pitch: 17.5°
  • Maximum Pitch: 44°
  • Minimum Headlap: 75mm
  • Maximum Headlap: 125mm
  • Minimum Gauge: 305mm
  • Maximum Gauge: 355mm
  • Tiles Per M²: 8.2
  • Batten Per M²: 2.82mtr
  • Batten Size: 25×50

Can this tile still be sourced?

This tile is one of the more easy of the discontinued tiles to source if you need some for repairs please contact our sales team here.

Alternatively if your roof is in dire need of repair and you cannot wait for us to source the Delta the Redland Stonewold II which is still in production is the same size as this tile and interlocks with it. However please note that the Stonewold II does not have the slanted ridge through the centre. (The Stonewold II can be found here).

Redland 52

How to ID it:

The Redland 52 is a large single pan concrete interlocking tile. It has no real discerning features on face but is considerably larger than most single pan tiles. The Redland 52 has its name printed on the back of the tile making it very easy to identify.

Technical:

  • Dimensions: 420mm x 280mm
  • Minimum Pitch: 30°
  • Minimum Headlap: 75mm
  • Maximum Gauge: 345mm
  • Tiles Per M²: 11.6
  • Batten Per M²: 2.9mtr
  • Batten Size: 25×50

Can this tile still be sourced?

Our ability to source this tile is sporadic. If you need some for repairs please contact our sales team here.

This tile is not compatible with any Redland tile still in production.

Marley Monarch & Marquess

How to ID it:

The Marley Monarch & Marquess are very thin, flat interlocking tiles. The only difference between the two is that the Monarch has a riven effect face whereas the Marquess has a smooth one.

Technical:

N/A

Can these tiles still be sourced?

Our ability to source these tiles is sporadic. If you need some for repairs please contact our sales team here.

These tiles are not compatible with any Marley tile still in production. However the Monarch and the Marquess can interlock with each other thus either can be used as a repair.

Marley Malvern

 

How to ID it:

The Marley Malvern is a single interlocking concrete tile with a double corrugation. This tile is sometimes confused with the Marley Mendip or the Redland Grovebury. However the corrugation on this tile is straight where as both the Mendip and the Grovebury have a wavey corrugation. It is easily IDed by its code number on the back 119.

Technical:

N/A

Can this tile still be sourced?

Our ability to source this tile is sporadic. If you need some for repairs please contact our sales team here.

This tile is not compatible with any Marley tile still in production although repairs have been performed by removing the eaves course of the Malvern tiles and replacing them with Mendips so that a repair on the roof itself can be performed with the newly freed up Malverns.
