Cembrit Moorland Slates

Published:  28 November, 2017

Fibre cement slates from Cembrit have been used on new-build homes that David Wilson Homes has developed in South Wales.

Providing a sleek finish, the dressed edge Moorland slates have made light work of a complex roofing project.

Having referred to the project requirements, the contractor Rooftop Tiling recognised the requirement for a roofing material that could be easily cut and installed on multi pitched roof designs. Rooftop Tiling specified Cembrit Moorland dressed edge slates and sourced these products in 600mm x 300mm blue/black from its local builders’ merchant, Robert Price.

Moorland fibre cement slates are manufactured using Portland cement together with a non-asbestos formulation of blended synthetic and cellulose fibres. Each slate is pigmented during production and fully compressed. The edges are dressed and then the slates are finished with a high-quality, semi-matt acrylic coloured coating to the top face and edges, and a clear binder to the back face.
