SIGnature Clay Tiles offer a select range of clay tiles that bring together modern technology and the traditional skills of the clay tile maker. Made from one of the most historic, continuously used construction materials, high quality natural clay tiles, fired correctly, will enhance any project, even in the most severe climate. As a natural material, clay will vary in quality, colour and appearance. Whilst some variation is normal, particularly in the handmade range, SIG’s experienced craftsmen ensure that quality remains consistent.
The SIGnature Clay Tiles portfolio includes Handmade, Hand Crafted and Machine Made clay tiles that combine modern construction technology with the traditional skills of the clay tile maker. They will add character and enhance the beauty of any building, resulting in old world charm for natural looking roofs.
SIGnature Clay Tiles are made to meet the highest standards of quality and usability, resulting in unrivalled product ranges that meet the required standards and regulatory requirements.
Our experience in clay tile production combined with our technical understanding of the pitched roofing industry as well as the architectural vernacular, means that we are confident that we can find you exactly the right solution for your project, wherever in the country it is.
SIGnature Clay Tiles are complimented by a full range of clay fittings including ridge and valley tiles, bonnet hips and angles for vertical tile hanging.
Handmade in the traditional fashion, each tile is moulded by hand and it’s this element of craftsmanship that gives the clay tile its characterful, highly-individual look.
The character and aesthetic of warm rich colour blends, together with varying texture and shape, ensures total versatility in their use, from restoration, refurbishment or contemporary new build.
Available in three colours: Chartham Red, Henley Weathered, Holmbury Blend.
Commonly used in both contemporary and traditional builds, machine made tiles hold their hue and actually mature with age. SIGnature machine made clay tiles are capable of meeting the aesthetic and performance demands of all types of roofing applications, whilst giving very high levels of durability. Less labour intensive than hand crafted or handmade clay tiles, machine made clay tiles are perfectly suited to the more cost-conscious project.
Available in two colours: Sherwood, Village Blend.
With hand crafted clay tiles, the process is automated up until just before the tiles are fired.
At this point they are taken off the line and hand-finished to replicate a rustic sand faced or smooth faced texture. Naturally colourfast and durable, the production process is not as labour intensive as handmade versions thereby offering a more cost-effective way to emulate the traditional and much admired look.
Available in one colour: Vintage.

BS EN 1304: 2013 is the harmonised EU standard governing clay roofing tiles and fittings. All clay tiles, irrespective of origin, should be tested to the criteria laid down in this standard and carry the CE mark. UK Building Regulations have been amended to ensure that only CE-marked products are used in cases where a directive exists. Local Authority Building Control Departments enforce these regulations, so it is recommended that any clay roofing tiles and fittings that you specify carry the CE mark, and you can obtain a set of test results. Specifiers of clay roofing tiles and fittings can check whether the tiles and fittings they have purchased, or are using, have been tested to BS EN 1304: 2013 by looking for the CE marking on any labels within the packaging, and/or any documentation accompanying the tiles and fittings, such as delivery notes or invoices.
All SIGnature Clay Tiles carry the CE mark.
N.B. CE marking does not indicate the quality of tiles and fittings – but that it has already been tested to BS EN 1304: 2013.
