TONDACH® Mediteran Plus

TONDACH® Mediteran Plus is the latest addition to Wienerberger’s existing range  of Koramic Roof Solutions. Manufactured in Europe, TONDACH® cleverly combines functionality and design aesthetics offering a perfectly engineered, economical solution for pitched roof construction - ideal for new buildings and refurbishment projects. Clay roof tiles have proven its worth since centuries across the world, with Kerala being a fervor champion of terracotta architecture. TONDACH® roof tiles epitomizes this very heritage of clay; being fired at 1,0500 centigrade, these tiles can withstand extremes of weather conditions.
Being a tropical location, Kerala faces heavy monsoons every year and one of the biggest challenges faced by home owners here is preventing water seepage through the roof. The unique curvature of TONDACH® tiles does not allow water retention on the roofs and facilitates easy drainage. Also the air within the curve acts as a natural insulator allowing sufficient breathability.
Ordinary roof tiles are prone to extraordinary levels of algae formation owing to low quality of the tile…The Engobe finish of TONDACH® tiles dissuades moss and fungus formation ensuring continued quality and aesthetics of the tiles for generations.
TONDACH® Roof Tiles are available from INR 85/- onwards.

The panels offer very high design flexibility to architects and are functionally superior to existing façade options.
