Sahtas Roof Tiles – hand-made terracotta with style and sustainability

Roof tiles should be the crowning glory of a property and any building with style deserves a tile that enhances the aesthetics, delivers high performance protection and extends sustainability of the property. Sahtas traditional hand-made terracotta roof tiles surpass these expectations and offer even more benefits.

Made in Turkey by the traditional hand-throwing of clay into sand dusted wooden moulds, Sahtas hand-made roof tiles are available in a wide range of beautiful colours, blends and profiles with a complementary range of ancillary fittings including ridges, peg tiles, bonnet hips, hanging angles, roof vents – making this one of the most comprehensive hand-made, roof tile ranges available.

Sahtas traditional moulding techniques are very much complimented by the advanced technology applied to the raw materials at the facility in Izmir.  Varied local clay is combined with the latest analytical and raw material processing techniques producing a product to ISO quality standards. These exceptional roof tiles have an insurance-backed 30-years guarantee to meet independent CERAM® tests to BS EN standards for flexural strength, resistance to frost damage and permeability to water.

Sahtas hand-made roof tiles are used for homes and buildings of distinction, meeting tomorrow’s standards, for today’s smartest roofs,” comments Mr Mehmet Zeki Sahin, General Manager, Sahtas Terracotta Products.  “These hand crafted products lend character and individuality to new build or renovation projects and we are proud of our traditional manufacturing heritage which is recognised worldwide.”

Sahtas hand-made roof tiles are available from all leading merchants and a network of authorised specialist distributors.  “Our products are available on short lead times thereby helping Architects and builders plan their building schedules with confidence,” continues Mr Sahin.

The Sahtas Company has been established for several decades producing machine-made earthenware in Izmir, Turkey.  The business is still family owned and operated today.  Due to the increase in demand for high quality handmade earthenware, major investment has been made in the Company’s existing plant and equipment, and in the skills of its workforce.  Hand-made facing bricks, floor tiles and exterior statuary are also manufactured by Sahtas and distributed worldwide.
