Roof Tile Sandwich Panel: the star of the Construction Sector

Construction began when the first settlers started to leave the caves. Initially, they built their homes with clay. Later on, they also began to use stone. Over time, humans evolved and began living in cities, leading to the emergence of new construction materials. As construction became popular, new materials and technologies were developed for the sector. Although it's constantly evolving, construction significantly developed during the 20th century.

But there's one thing that doesn't change over time: the use of the Sandwich Tile as a construction material.

Discover in this post its development, as well as its properties, types, and opportunities it offers for your projects.

Origins and Evolution of the Tile as a construction material

Throughout history, tiles have been one of the construction materials that have undergone the most changes over time. The oldest civilizations built roofs made of straw, branches, and leaves with sloped inclines to facilitate rain runoff. However, these materials did not prevent water or weather inclemencies from entering the homes of that time.

Around 2000 B.C., humans began to use clay to make roof tiles. This occurred in Mesopotamian civilizations around the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. Later on, in England, stone or slate began to be used as a roofing material.

Stone and adobe tiles represented a huge advancement in construction methods. They not only replaced old materials like straw or leaves but also revolutionized the way houses were protected in the ancient world. Their use spread throughout the Mediterranean, being employed by both the Greeks and the Romans, as well as throughout the European continent.

It was in the 19th century when the Tile began to establish itself as an efficient alternative as a construction material. The main advantages they provided at the time were their increased strength and durability. Additionally, different treatments and pigments began to be applied to achieve various tile colors.

Today, tiles continue to be an essential material in the construction sector because, thanks to their characteristics and widespread use, they have remained popular throughout history. In many population centers, a similar aesthetic vision is required.

Sandwich Type Tile

The use of this material allows for achieving the same aesthetic as traditional tiles but with greater strength and lightness. The Sandwich Type Tile emerges as a visibly more attractive and economical option than traditional roofs, as well as a solution to issues like leaks or seepages.
