Guiding the way! Wienerberger unveils new Keymer specification guide

A brand new limited edition specification guide has been launched by Keymer, the internationally renowned manufacturer of handmade roof tiles which is now part of the Wienerberger group, that showcases its history and products.

The 76-page guide, which can be ordered free-of-charge is a compilation and celebration of Keymer’s history, products and installation techniques, utilising hand drawn images that call back to the company’s founding in 1588. The images within the guide are the same that featured in the original brochure, which was previously launched to critical acclaim. This re-release of the guide has seen the content updated to be exclusively available to architects and specifiers working on current projects, and can be requested from Wienerberger.

The full range of traditional, handmade tile types currently produced by Keymer is featured in the brochure with photography of the tiles from projects such as Leeds Castle in Kent to Shakespeare’s Birth Place in Stratford upon Avon – clearly illustrating the range as the ideal choice for a wide variety of projects.

The guide also covers fittings, traditional ornaments and finials – the final touch added to roofs with historical precedence. Alongside reference to the heritage service also provided by Keymer, the guide goes in to great detail regarding the installation of its products. From ridges to verges and abutments, the whole installation process is explained pictorially with concise and easy to understand supporting text.

Richard Bishop, Category Marketing Manager for Roof at Wienerberger, commented:

“We’re delighted to be launching the new Keymer guide. Keymer has been making some of the most beautiful handmade tiles for over 420 years and it was very important that we mirrored that heritage and quality in the brochure. This brochure will allow people to see what Keymer can offer to enhance not only restoration projects, but modern build properties also.

“The guide itself is a high quality, full colour document which reflects the traditional nature of the Keymer brand but makes it truly accessible to the modern architect. The new guide is available for a limited time only, and interested parties can order a copy free-of-charge from Wienerberger, and our expert team will be able to support your project through the specification and installation process.”
