  • Lightweight… from only 12 kgs/sq. metre (half the weight of natural slate). Very useful for re-roofing applications where timbers may be suspect, or when designing the loading specification for a new roof.

  • Slates are marked with nailing and exposure guidelines and horizontal spacers, which helps to maintain integrity when fixing.

  • Dimensionally accurate… no need to sort for thickness before loading the roof. Natural slate can vary in thickness, causing gapping, and subsequent breakage if walked on.

  • Product doesn’t crack or split, particularly when cutting for hips, valleys, etc.

  • Quicker to lay than natural slate. Much loved by roofers, once they have used the product, for many of the above reasons.

Slate… but not as you know it!
