Webb Roofing Solutions MANUFACTURERS & SUPPLIERS OF SANDCAST LEAD SHEET CEL is one of the few remaining manufacturers to use traditional methods to create sandcast lead sheet, and for over 25 years has supplied some of the most prestigious projects across the UK and Europe. CEL produces sandcast lead sheet in codes 5 to 12 for heritage projects but it can also be used on other lead roofing contracts offering substantial cost savings. Every sheet is cut to size for length and width (max sheet size 6m x 1,400mm) reducing waste and on-site installation time. CEL can also re-cast salvaged lead from the project where the new sandcast lead is being installed, and purchases salvaged lead, offering a collection service if required.

Sussex Terracotta floor tiles are made in a vast range of colours, shapes and sizes and the tiles are made to look mature from the day they are laid.

Coupled with this now unique facility to generate traditional natural clay colours, Dreadnought also manufactures bespoke ornamental ridges and finials as well as handmade fittings.

This traditional technique delivers vibrant clay colours that look natural on the roof and blend particularly well; sometimes colour blends are the solution to match discontinued tiles produced in coal fired kilns.
