Z5 »variwell«

Above all the Z5 is a popular, classical interlocking pantile especially in northern Germany. No other Jacobi-Walther roof tiles are available to you in such a wide range of colours and finishes. Since its introduction in 1920, we have consistently developed the premium-quality, long-lasting interlocking pantile and optimised it for use on your roof.

As a result of its curved shape and the perfect ends on corners, edges and surfaces, the top-quality interlocking pantile is ideal for draining water and withstands any weather situation. With the straight cut design, you get an aligned look that can be used for listed buildings and others.
