I'm translating a German patent which contains numerous specific words for parts of a roofing tile, and am having difficulty finding the English terms. The link below has a diagram (under "Falzziegel: Begriffe") indicating all the German terms - does anybody know of a similar English language source showing the English equivalents?

Thanks in advance!
