  • Tiles are stacked by wedging a tile vertically behind a batten to create a platform for a stack of tiles
  • Tiles must be laid broken bond in a half bond pattern, but the side lap may be reduced to a minimum of a third of the width of the tile (55 mm) in some circumstances, e.g. curved roofing
  • Tiles must be hung on their nibs
  • Adjacent tiles should be laid with a nominal gap of 1.5 mm, maximum 3 mm
  • At eaves, use double courses with purpose made Eaves/Top Tiles for the undercourse
  • At verges and abutments, use Standard Plain Tiles and Tile-and-a-Halves in alternate courses
  • Adjacent to hips and valleys, use Tile-and-a-Halves for raking cuts
  • At side abutments, allow for stepped flashing and soakers
  • At top courses use double courses with purpose made Eaves/Top Tiles for the top course.
  • For Winchester Cuts use two Tile-and-a-Halves per course. This detail must not be used to abut roof pitches below 40̴åÁ or in exposed locations. In these cases, use soldier or double soldier courses
  • Individual tiles can be laid unfixed or nailed
  • Always refer to FixMaster for a BS 5534-compliant fixing specification
  • When nailing, two nails must be used per tile
