Product Description

Made from recyclable plastic and Dolomite limestone, TapcoSlate has the random texture and edges of natural slate.

  • Strong, cost effective, recyclable and attractive.
  • No breakage, wastage, drilling or sorting required.
  • Available in a range of attractive colours and blends.
  • A production induced camber ensures the slates follow the roof contours for maximum wind uplift protection.

  • When tested to BS476 part 3, an AA fire rating is achieved for installation on boarded roofs.
  • BBA Certified.
