Fibre Cement Slates
As well as adorning some of the nation’s most important historic buildings and being a staple of vernacular architecture in many parts of the UK, slated roofs are used increasingly in design-led projects for the commercial, public, leisure and retail sectors.
Marley Eternit fibre cement slates provide the charm of a natural slate roof with all the economical, functional and environmentally friendly attributes of modern slate technology with low pitch options available down to 15 degrees.
There are a number on benefits in using Marley Eternit’s fibre cement slates that make them an attractive option for those specifying slate or cladding. Our four products, Rivendale, Birkdale, Garsdale and Thrutone have been designed with the architect in mind and offer the opportunity to produce innovative and imaginative designs either as vertical cladding or slate roof pitches.
