Slates have a minimum apparent density of 1700kg/m3 when tested to BS EN 492
Meet the strength requirements of BS EN 492, achieving an average bending moment greater than 50Nm/m (Class B)
Vertigo slates are suitable for the following structures:
- masonry panels and walls made of brick or block work
- pre-cast concrete walls
- wooden framed constructions
Where fibre cement slates are used on a walling application, the backing structure must be the water/wind proof construction.
NOTE: The Vertigo range, when used in a wall application is suitable for use with up to a maximum 2.0 kN/m² windload. Loadings in excess of this are not recommended.
Please note Vertigo slates are not recommended for use on the roof. To create a complete building envelope, matching slates from the Birkdale and Rivendale range should be used.
