THE EVOLUTION OF TILES

PROPERTIES

The concrete roof tiles of ALMA are manufactured according to the highest international quality standards being the outcome of years of research and testing. The manufacturing process takes place in Thessaloniki, at an ultra-modern production plant which gets the most out of the expertise and the know-how of specialized foreign firms.

The quartz sand, a 100% natural product, from the sand pits in Axios river is used as the raw material. During the manufacturing process, the tiles are dried in fully controlled conditions of temperature and humidity and the final product is fully symmetrical, with excellent texture, high durability and properties that make it an "all-weather tile"!

The sophisticated coloring of the tile is a triple-layer one providing a self-cleaning effect potential. It creates a protective film that retains dust and small particles that are removed by the rain water, preventing, thus, the growth of microorganisms as well as the mold growth over time.

The concrete roof tiles of ALMA, combined with a full range of special pieces, enable the construction of roofs with indefinite life expectancy, high aesthetics, tolerance to extreme weather conditions, without requiring any maintenance, ensuring a healthy environment inside the building.

    ALMA TILEAlma ENCLASSIC TILE
ALMA TILE
Having the tiles manufactured and dried in molds, without being baked, total symmetry and uniformity is ensured.
CLASSIC TILE
The raw material for tiles comes from the soil and, due to the significant variations in its quality, the dimensions of the tiles may differ with each other during their drying and baking processes.
ALMA TILE
Perfect fitting on any type of roof. Lighter roofs by 12-14 kg/m2.
CLASSIC TILE
There are often problems as far as their installation is concerned, due to variations in the shape of the support timber.
ALMA TILE
Zero water absorption and total impermeability.
CLASSIC TILE
The shingle deviation during the drying and baking processes may create slight cracks that are not eye-visible and could favor the water intrusion and the creation of moisture and condensation.
ALMA TILE
High tolerance to extreme temperatures and weather conditions (frost, hail, strong winds, etc) κλπ.).
CLASSIC TILE
Low resistance to extreme temperatures, especially to extreme cold temperatures (frost).
ALMA TILE
The consistently high quality of the raw material ensures a homogeneous color effect in different production batches.
CLASSIC TILE
The different qualities of the soil as raw material lead to deviations and, consequently, to a heterogeneous color effect in different production batches.
ALMA TILE
Wide variety of ecological colors.
CLASSIC TILE
Limited range of colors.
ALMA TILE
UV reflective eco-friendly colors that keep the house temperature constant and, consequently, provide a healthier indoor environment.
CLASSIC TILE
Due to the tiles' moisture absorption sensitivity, they foster the growth of microorganisms (fungi) a short time after the tiling.
