Technical Info

Dreadnought Tiles conform to BS EN 1304:2013 and should be fixed in accordance with BS5534 "Slating and Tiling" part 1 & 2 and BS8000 Part 6.
Frozen-Icon2 webFreeze Thaw Standards require plain clay tiles for use in the U.K. to withstand at least 150 freeze / thaw cycles under method E of European Standard EN 539-2:2013.   At Dreadnought Tiles we regard this as too low for our climate and we therefore test our tiles to withstand in excess of 400 cycles.
