Product Introduction

1. Flat Tile Series


The original design brings flat roofing tile the most utilitarian functions of waterproofing and  roof drainage, in which wind and water can be prevented from seeping through it. Furthermore, modern production techniques and anti-leakage roofing system enable better thermal insulation flat tiles.

By means of traditional azurite forming die, high-quality clay, advanced imported equipment and excellent technical formula, flat tiles are shaped at 1100 ℃ for one time. The glaze attaches to it in a long-lasting way without peeling off, arris defect and efflorescence.

Features of Flat Tiles

The unique design determines the high practicability of the flat tile. The flatness of tile surface not only equips it with the drainage performance that other thick roofing tiles are difficult to be equipped, but also stopps it from accumulating debris brought by wind and rain. Especially, for buildings in large snow area such as Northeast area and Inner Mongolia, it is more conducive to snow discharge and reduce the damage to personal safety and vehicles caused by ice dam.

With modern advanced production technology, after pressing and sintering at a high temperature, flat tile has better compression resistance and richer colors and shapes, becoming more suitable for the requirements of modern architecture.

The tile paving method is simple, efficient, labor-saving and material- saving, and the effective area is large, which reduces the weight and consumption of the roof to one third of the traditional one.

Apart from the classical and luxurious features of European tile, Roman tile is improved according to the actual situation of China. Compared with the European tiles in being, it has larger radian, which is more suitable for domestic climate conditions due to its stronger waterproof capacity.
