DREADNOUGHT LAUNCHES 3 NEW CLAY ROOF TILE COLOURS AND A NEW WEBSITE TO CELEBRATE THEIR 200 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
200 YEARS OF DREADNOUGHT TILES:
To celebrate their 200 year anniversary Dreadnought launches 3 new mixed colour blends; the Trafalgar, Nelson and Collingwood. The victory at Trafalgar was the inspiration behind the Dreadnought name given to the plain clay roof tiles manufactured on the same site in Brierley Hill since 1805. HMS Dreadnought "dread nought but God" was engaged at the Battle of Trafalgar and her endeavours, weathering the toughest conditions, reflected the performance of the clay roof tiles. (Many examples exist of Dreadnought tiles performing on roofs for over 100 years.)
“Clay roofs of mixed colours have proved increasingly popular over the last few years. It was for a mixed colour roof that we won the Best New Housing Award at the last Clay Roof Tile Council awards. Our three new blends reflect this growing trend, and to better illustrate this more individual way of using tiles, we have also launched a new website,” commented Christopher Davenhill Managing Director.
Dreadnought Tiles have never compromised the principals established 200 year ago, that all the clay tile colours be the product of the careful control of the kiln process with no added dyes or pigments. It is this organic property of the colour, with its subtle variations which ensures the tiles blend so successfully on a roof. www.dreadnought-tiles.co.uk
