The popular Birkdale fibre cement slate can be used for low pitch designs down to 15° (with hook fixing)* offering the designer and contractor more flexible aesthetic and installation options.
The hook fixing method is specifically for 15° - 20° pitches for moderate exposure roofs. This complements our Birkdale range using conventional nail and rivet fixing for steeper pitches or for severe exposure roofs.
Featuring a smooth surface and dressed edges Birkdale fibre cement slates offer a traditional and pleasing look at an affordable price.
The combination of colour, edge finish and design flexibility that the Birkdale offers means it is ideal as both a roofing and cladding solution, used on numerous projects including the Tally Ho training centre in Birmingham and the Holcombe Moor Army base near Bury.
