Tectura Designs has added a four-color blending process to its portfolio of concrete rooftop, on-grade and architectural pavers. This capability, made possible by Tectura Designs’ investment in technology and manufacturing facilities, adds to the company’s diverse portfolio of paving products and its custom capabilities.
 
The four-color blends provide customers creative control and the ability to create one-of-a-kind gradients with custom orders. Tectura Designs’ Stone River series is the first line to feature this four-color blending, offering six standard color blends.
  
The four-color blending technology is the latest innovation to come out of Tectura Designs’ 100,000-square-foot paver manufacturing facility. Tectura has delivered hydraulically machine-pressed pavers for more than 40 years, and the facility, which opened in 2016, gives customers creative control, including:

  • The ability to customize the color palette of any paver, and oversee the dye- and aggregate-mixing processes
  • Standard color options and an array of finishes and surface textures
  • More than 60 sizes
  • A selection of samples and aggregate combinations
  • High performance thresholds, with H-20, H-25, HS-20 and HS-25 loading capabilities for both light and heavyweight vehicular traffic

Boral Roofing launched its Gemstone Collection derived from earthy southwestern hues in six unique concrete roof tile blends.

Boral Roofing LLC, a provider of sustainable clay and concrete roof tile systems, launched its Gemstone Collection. Boral Roofing is introducing these pallets derived from earthy southwestern hues in six unique concrete roof tile blends. The Gemstone Collection is now available for sale in California.

Designed with subtle shifts of rich color that converge into elegant configurations, these sophisticated blends incorporate hues originating from, and inspired by, the Southwest. All of the Gemstone Collection selections share the same benefits as the full Boral Roofing concrete tile solutions product line, including durability, protection from inclement weather and energy efficiency.

The collection includes six new blends: Sea Pearl, Garnet, Smokey Topaz, Bronze Pearl, Ocean Jasper and Sahara Quartz Blend. All Gemstone colors meet the new California Title 24 compliance requirements and are listed by the Cool Roof Rating Council.

Sea Pearl Blend emulates the iridescence of pearls with a subtle balance of hues. Warm, gray tones shimmer with lustrous patina, reflecting sophistication and grace. Garnet Blend, an amalgam of deep, earthy reds is reminiscent of the majestic sandstone structures that Sedona, Arizona is famous for. Rustic and awe-inspiring, Garnet Blend conveys a sense of enduring strength and ancient grandeur. Smokey Topaz Blend mixes calming shades of honey and brown to evoke a sense of security and tranquillity. Bronze Pearl Blend emulates the rich, shimmery patina that forms naturally on the surface of bronze and embodies the uniquely rich color qualities of the metal itself. Ocean Jasper Blend was created to emulate a rare and beautiful rock found only on the coast of Madagascar. The multiple colors unite into a single vivacious platform that attracts the eye. Sahara Quartz Blend evokes the ethereal beauty of the desert at sunrise.

With the Gemstone theme, Boral Roofing adds the Saxony 900 Country Slate profile. This sleek design features unique bevelled edges precisely defining each roof tile for a staggered appearance. Other profiles featured with the color collection are the Spanish Barcelona “S” tile, the Mediterranean Villa 900 and the rustic Saxony 900 Shake to complement any architectural style.
