Reproduction Reclaimed Grey Single Size Slate
Manufactured in the UK
Greys Artslate Reproduction Reclaimed Grey Single Size Slate roofing products are hand crafted to give an authentic roofscape. The glass fibre cement construction provides a light yet durable roofing material. An easy to lay format and a range of compatible products, including ridges and slate vents to create an extremely versatile and cost effective alternative to natural products. Each individual slate is hand crafted using moulds taken from slate originals.
The fine edge detail and textured surface combines with realistic colouration to create an attractive alternative to natural slate. Greys Artslate Reproduction Reclaimed Grey Single Size Slates have been designed in consultation with professional roofers and architects, to achieve an easy to lay and uniform slating format. Greys Artslate Reproduction Reclaimed Grey Single Size Slates are constructed from Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) producing a strong and durable slate weighing only 30kgm2. Their construction allows them to be cut easily without cracking or breaking and looks like slate when cut.
The light weight construction of our slates saves on labour and timber costs, approximately 33% with our slate products.
Reclaimed Grey Slate
All the slates in our range have been successfully tested for durability, colour, strength, fire and freeze thaw. Many of our competitors use traditional concrete, their slates aren’t protected from the elements, which will expose the aggregate over time. See the example below.
In a recent document The International Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete Association recommend that for good quality GRC, ductile lifetimes of at least 60-80 years can be confidently expected in UK weather conditions. (Source: www.grca.org.uk).
We’re confident our product is durable enough and manufactured to the highest of standards that we give a 25 year manufacturer guarantee.
Colour and Efflorescence COLOUR: Stone and Slate colours on this website are subject to the limitations of monitor quality and are for guidance only. EFFLORESCENCE: The phenomenon of efflorescence has been a problem to the construction industry for decades. The cause lies in the basis chemistry of all Portland cements. Efflorescence in Greys Artstone products is a temporary phenomena and will disappear over time.
