Plain tiles are small and rectangular in format and have always been 265mm x 165mm (or in fact 101/2 " x 61/2 ") in overall size, requiring 60 tiles per square metre. They perform by overlapping densely up to three tiles deep to achieve a watertight layer.

It is this functional requirement that creates their distinctive detailed appearance, adding a sense of detail and texture to the roof. This character is enhanced by the effect of cambers longitudinally and across the width. Plain tiles can be machine made or handmade, the latter creating the classic rustic appearance. Sandtoft manufactures both machine made and handmade plain tiles and has also introduced to the market an innovative interlocking plain tile which greatly reduces material and labour costs, and weighs 50% less per square metre.
