Ottoman Tile

For the ones who want to experience nostalgia...

Known as one of the oldest tile types throughout history, Ottoman Tile which is specifically used for restoration works maintains aesthetics on roofs for years owing to its new clamping design. Ottoman Tile makes a difference with its clamping structure when compared to similar products.

Special components fit on both side of Ottoman Tile solve the problem of sliding tiles on the roof. These components function as a clamp on Ottoman Tiles. Aforementioned components,  provide tiles to clamp and facilitate application for roofers. With its new design, Ottoman Tile extends the lifetime of buildings which age gracefully, by protecting their original structure during restorations.

Advantages of Ottoman Tile

  1. Offering ease of application thanks to its special components fit on both side of the tile, this product has solved the problem of sliding of tiles on the roof. These components function as a clamp on Ottoman Tiles. New design removes the necessity of hook use.
  2. It has an advantage of flexible assembly especially on round roofs, since there is no channel structure on the tiles.
    It is a nostalgic tile mostly preferred by restorations.
  3. Nail holes are designed to prevent water leakage.
  4. It hardly shows dust and dirt thanks to its smooth surface.
  5. It has a wide curve creating a deeper wavy and aesthetic look on the roof.

Ottoman Tile Installation

  1. In cases where laths are used on warm roofs with Ottoman tiles (ISO BOARD ROOF), first of all, 2.2 cm or 2.5 cm high vertical laths are laid with 33.6 cm intervals from axle to axle in order to fix the bottom tiles, as seen on the section. Then vertical lathing is carried out to fix upper tiles vertically to the eaves and to prevent tiles from sliding.
  2. In case of lath thickness of 5 x 5 cm, distance between the two vertical axles must be either 16.5 or 17 cm. Distance between two laths must be 22 cm, when lath width is 2.5 cm and lath height is 8 cm.
  3. Condensation lathes at 2.2 cm or 2.5 cm height must be installed vertically to the eaves, in order to protect waterproofing sheath before double lathing on cold roofs and waterproofing underneath the tile. These vertical laths are covered with waterproofing sheath first and then, double lathing is started as mentioned at the first article above.
  4. Tiling is started from the eaves. Bottom tiles are laid so that their narrow grooves face the eaves, while upper tiles are laid so that their wide grooves face the eaves. Tiles must overlap each other at 8 cm. Nails, screws, hooks, wires or laths on every tile must be fixed.
  5. When tiles are laid on roof sheathing on the rafter (continuous sheathing such as wood or OSB), it is necessary to ventilate under tiles. Deformation may occur under surfaces of unventilated tiles due to condensation. Vertical lathing is carried out on cold roofs with 50 cm intervals, while channel, thermal insulating board is used on warm roofs to ensure ventilation under tiles. Insulating tape, which vapor permeable, is used under roof ridges, so that air can properly circulate under tiles.
