Available Colours and Sizes
The light weight construction of our slates saves on labour and timber costs, approximately 33% with our slate products.
Our slates are constructed from Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC). Construction allows easy cutting without cracking or breaking. Our slates weather like natural slate not concrete, unlike aggregate based concrete products that can show aggregate through their surface due to weathering over time.
In a recent document The International Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete Association recommend that for good quality GRC, ductile lifetimes of at least 60-80 years can be confidently expected in UK weather conditions (Source: www.grca.org.uk).
