  • Choice of colours and made to look like an authentic traditional slate tile
  • Flexibility allows use in hips and ridges without custom-made accessories

The self-bonding nature of these slates creates a strong and pliable membrane, offering excellent wind and weather resistance even at low pitches. Installation is straightforward, fitting directly onto a plyboard or oriented strand board (OSB) without the need for roof battens.

Covered by a 50-year warranty, these slates have undergone rigorous testing, withstanding winds up to 110mph and earning a Class 4 impact rating. They are fire-resistant and compliant with the BS476: Part 3: 2004 standard, boasting a Class 'A' rating. By choosing these Eco Slate tiles, you benefit from a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to traditional slate, allowing you to enjoy the same aesthetic appeal while embracing their lightweight, flexible, and unbreakable design.

Standards & Certification

  • British Standard: BS476 Part 3-2004
  • Fire Rating: Class A
  • Impact Resistance Rating: Class 4

Please note:

  • Eco Slate is only suitable for boarded roofs of 18mm ply or OSB board with a suitable breather membrane on the top surface with the correct vented space below the boards/sarking. This is essential to avoid structural damage to the boards supporting the Eco Slate layer.
  • As the slate/shingles are manufactured from 100% recycled material, there may be a slight colour variation due to the materials used. However, this feature only adds to producing what is a more natural and authentic slate appearance.
  • Our slates are typically delivered on a six-wheeled lorry (11m long and 2.4m wide) with a tail-lift facility to offload on solid, level ground with a pump truck. Non-compliance with delivery restrictions may result in additional delivery charges. Should you specifically require a crane or small vehicle offload, please notify us at the time of placing the order, as an additional charge may be incurred.
  • Please allow 5% extra in the ordered quantity to cover acceptable breakage in transporting natural slate products.

Question:

Is it light enough to put on a summer house roof?

Answer:

Yes this would be a suitable lightweight option.

Question:

I have a single pitched roof in a reasonably protected location. The pitch is a shade over 11 degrees. The current roof is slate. We are getting increasing water ingress at the slope top where it adjoins a wall. The flashing has been replaced but the problem still exists. A roofer has suggested that as the roof is at such a shallow pitch, capillary action of the water is causing the water ingress. Would the ECO slate roof tile prevent this capillary action? The house is listed hence is the appearance of the tile the same as slate?

Answer:

Eco slate can be installed to a low pitch but does need to go down onto a fully boarded roof, to check it meets planning approval in your area you can always orders a sample from the link below.

Hot galvanised or stainless steel nails only.

Question:

Do you overlap these tiles ?

Yes these are still installed with an overlap. Coverage rates depend on pitch.
