Roof tile associations merge

8 Jan 14 A new trade association has been formed to represent the interests of manufacturers involved in the pitched roofing industry.

The Roof Tile Association (RTA) brings together the Clay Roof Tile Council (CRTC) and the Concrete Tile Manufacturers Association (CTMA). Members include: Dreadnought, Forticrete, Marley Eternit, Redland, Russell and Sandtoft.  

Dreadnought managing director Alex Patrick-Smith, formerly chairman of CRTC, said: “The British and European technical standards relating to pitched roof systems tend to apply equally to both material types, so it made little sense to have two different technical committees considering different responses. 

“Our objective should be to ensure that the pitched roofing industry has a strong and unified influence on the direction of regulations and standards – the formation of the RTA provides this unity.”
