Fangxing Roof Tile Exhibition Room

Our orignal intention to establish exhition room is showing clients and visitors Fangxing history, as well as today and the future. Roof tiles in future are with high technology, low-canbon and eviroment-friendly. Human living environment and condition will become better and better.

China is known as the earliest country who invented roof tiles first, which appeared at Zhuanxu and widespread at Kunwu at the time during 21~16th century BC. This is the earliest roof tile in human history, which was unearthed at Qijia Culture Sites, Qiao Village, Lingtai County, Gansu Province. This is imitation, and the original one is collected in Gansu Province Museum. Before roof tiles appeared, the ancients used branches, trunks and grass for waterproofing.

Eave tile is a kind of ceramic product used for construction. The record of using eave tile began in the middle and late Western Zhou Dynasty (1066 to 771 BC). Eave tile is convenient for water flowing, protecting the eaves, and increasing the artistic of buildings.

‘Kui-dragon’ pattern eave tile of Qin Dynasty (221~206 BC), the biggest eave tile in China, was used for the palace of Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum. Four God eave tiles, Green Dragon, White Tiger, Rosefinch, and Black Warrior stand for different seasons and directions, which are also used to avoid evil influence and pray for happiness.

Glazed tile, which was first used on the buildings in Northern and Southern Dynasties (479 ~ 581 AD), is sturdy and colorful. Yellow color is used for royal palaces, green for mansions of princes, cyan color for sacrifice building and dark purple for gardens.

Chinese-style roof tile, which is fired in an intermittent kiln of reducing atmosphere, was first used in Song Dynasty (960~1125 AD), and peaked in Qing Dynasty (1644~1911 AD). 

Clay tile. Machine-processed plain clay tile was first produced in Jiecheng Potter in Qingdao City when it was conquered by Germany in the year of 1898. The tile is molded by clay under temperature of 1200℃.It becomes colorful glazed tile after being painted.    

Cement tile, was first recorded to be used in Changchun City when Northeast China was conquered by Japan in 1938. Nowadays cement tiles are molded by filter pressing, which have various colors.

Fangxing resin tile is made from Geloy anti-climate engineering resin, which is extraordinary suitable for outdoor use. Even exposed to ultra-violet radiation, dampness, heat, chillness and impact, the products remain the stability of color and physical  properties. Test held in Aging Test Center of Arizona and Florida prove that △E is less than 5 within 10years.

Also the surface of Fangxing Geloy tile is dense and sooth with “lotus-leaf-effect”. After washed by rain, it can be as clean as a new one. Thus there will be no such situation that the tile becomes variegated caused by gegrime that is scoured by rain.

The advantage of our corrugated tile

Why choose Fangxing corrugated roof tile? Let’s take a quick look on the features of mainstream roof tile market first, you will know the reasons people prefer Fangxing corrugated sheet.

About the bitumen tile: color monotone, no dimension, flammable, do not fire retarding.. after the plane landed the dust can not be self -cleaning, essential to do the waterproofing membrane, tar adhesives.

About the metal tile: surface corrosion resistance, thermal insulation performance is poor, when windy, rainy will have a lot of noise, surface paint color monotonous and poor insulation performance, application: steel houses.

Fashion – Red-eye Roof Style

Challenge your imagination right now!

Look at the pictures of green roof, which is sort of spotlight on the beach. The spice is the red-dot-like decoration making the roof tile look more alien and way far from the life we live. I am lucky to find out the great idea from a roof contractor of mine. I guess you have never seen green roofs with ‘red eyes’ either before.

The roof project used Fangxing Roma Tile.

How you want your roof to be, it will be.
