Fibre Cement Slate

Fibre cement slates are becoming increasingly popular within the construction industry, for both roofing and facades, so Roofing Superstore is proud to offer the latest ranges of fibre cement slates at our famously competitive prices. 

What are fibre cement slates?

Fibre cement slates are slates that have been manufactured from fibre cement, to produce an alternative to natural slate that has economic and environmental advantages, as well as a number of other benefits. Manufactured alongside these slates are their ridges for continous ventilation at the ridge, required on all slate roofs. 

Advantages of fibre cement slates

Firstly, fibre cement slates are much more consistent than natural slate. This means that they provide much more stability than natural slate, as the inconsistencies in natural slate can create weaknesses within the roof covering structure. 

As well as stability, the consistency of fibre cement slates removes the need to grade and sort slates before installation onsite, and reduces the amount of wastage created. 

Fibre cement slates are much more lightweight than natural slate. This not only makes handling and installation quicker and easier, but also means that the building does not require a heavy load bearing framework, unlike projects that use natural slate roofing. 

Fibre cement is 100% recyclable, meaning that fibre-cement slates have good environmental credentials. Additionally, the lightweight property of fibre-cement means that carbon emissions are lower in the transportation process.
