CLAY IS LIFE

Ton ist Leben

Beyond the wish of every builder for his own home there is a need of security and warmth, of calm and a happy life. This is the reason why he decides to build with high-quality roof tiles out of clay from lower Rhine. Clay is a gift of nature. A gift for life. Clay has a lot of characteristics that improve our life-quality. One of the best: It delivers roof tiles of premium quality.
Only the four elements, earth, water, air, and fire, are necessary to produce the traditional and future-oriented building material. Roof tiles out of clay create a warm living climate. They promote the exchange of air and moisture, defy the sun, storm, rain, ice, snow, and all other environmental influences. They keep heat and cold away. Clay roof tiles create and maintain values for generations. We from Laumans have been living with and for clay for more than 120 years.

CLAY IS TRADITION

CLAY IS RESPONSIBILITY

Tonabbau

Starting from the raw materials, through the production, the use and the use of the products as components, our clay roof tiles fulfill all the ecological and economic requirements for a future-oriented roofing material. In addition, the recultivation of dismantling facilities, as well as possible subsequent disposal and recycling, is part of our overall corporate concept. Naturally, we always meet the stringent regulatory requirements for clay mining and so contribute to the protection of the environment throughout the production of roof tiles. Our customers therefore always opt for a real natural building material, which is shaped, burned and refined in clay in an ecologically optimized production process from clay to roof tiles. We at Laumans produce environmentally friendly premium roof tiles.
