The authentic, traditional design of the Marley Eternit Plain tile gives it the looks to match its outstanding versatility. The plain tile is especially suitable for details such as dormers, eyebrows and conical roofs as well as vertical cladding. This popular concrete plain tile comes in both smooth face and granular finishes and the choice of 9 attractive colours.

Our concrete tiles can achieve an 'A+' rating (the lowest environmental impact) in the Building Research Establishment's Green Guide to Specification (* element ref: 812410007, 812410018, 812410049).

Accreditation to the BES 6001 framework standard for 'Responsible Sourcing' means that projects using our concrete tiles can now achieve extra credits under BREEAM and The Code for Sustainable Homes. Click here to find out more.
