Our NEW Vertigo range gives free rein to your creativity and brings a new dimension to design with fibre cement slates. 

Unique to Marley Eternit, the Vertigo range has been specifically created for vertical applications, perfectly adapting to the contours of the building and providing a second protective skin, which enables visual and performance continuity between roof and facade, creating a complete and beautiful building envelope.

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.
