French term or phrase: Tuile à côte
Hi, another roof-tile question from me, I'm afraid!

I'm struggling to find the English (UK) equivalent for "tuile à côte".

Termium suggests this could be translated as a 'pantile', but I'm not convinced as the specific feature of this tile seems to be the "côte". I haven't found anything convincing mentioning an edge/ridge/rib.

Here's the term with a bit more context:

"Conçue pour la rénovation, la tuile à côte universelle est une tuile traditionnelle de la fin du XIXe que l'on retrouve aussi bien sur les bâtiments publics que sur les maisons meulières des années 1900.

Compatible avec plus de 230 modèles existants, la tuile à côte universelle est la tuile idéale des remaniages ou rénovations ponctuelles."

Thanks in advance for your help!
