The elegant of slate, the purity of terracotta
The Beauvoise Graphite tile is a blend of the best of its origins: the historic clay of Beauvais and the sleek, polished look of slate. These small-format plain interlocking tiles are without a doubt a new classic in contemporary roof style.

The charm of slate
Increasingly used both in the roofing and to dress the facades of cladding, the good looks of natural slate never fail to please. As a solutions specialist for roofs and facades, EDILIANS has extended its small mould range to offer a terracotta tile with the look of a natural slate.

The merits of the terracotta tile
Made of Beauvais clay, the Beauvoise Graphite Terracotta tile retains the pure lines and straight front edge of the Beauvoise Huguenot tile, whose mould was used in its design. With its slightly finer profile, slate grey colour and textured surface, it creates a perfect imitation of natural slate roofs, at a much lower cost per square metre, while retaining the undeniable advantages of terracotta roofing.
