Clay roof tiles

Years of experience – Nelskamp clay tiles

Clay roof tiles are a favourite construction material steeped in tradition. The manufacturing process has remained almost unchanged since 1926: the pressed clay tile obtains its final hardness and structure at 1,000 degrees Celsius. Correct installation of the tiles and regular maintenance will ensure that your roof brings you joy for many years to come.

Our manufacturing process is constantly optimized; each technological advance is reflected in the properties of the tiles. Our large-area tiles, for instance, are "hard ceramic", making them particularly frost-resistant.

Nelskamp provides clay roof tiles in a wide range of shapes and colours, from traditional hollow pantiles and fish-scale tiles to low-pitch roof tiles and double-trough tiles. For roofs with individuality and character.

Nibra large tile DS 5

The DS 5 plays a leading role among large-format variable overlap tiles. With around six tiles per square metre it is one of the largest tiles worldwide and is an alternative to using corrugated fibre-cement or bitumen roofing sheets. Despite its size, there are no additional special requirements for its installation or for structural strength.
