The Frankfurt roof tile was developed in the 1950s and has since been one of the most commonly used tile types in Germany. The individual roof tiles have standard dimensions and are known for their simple and mutually supportive mounting.

The shape of the Frankfurter pans allow tolerances in the covering length one above the other. As a result, they can be adapted to the pitch of the roof and also be made to measure on bay windows, protrusions and other structural conditions.
