We source these slates specifically to suit the Scottish market. Historically natural Scottish slates were traditionally heavier and thicker due to the adverse weather conditions we often face in this country. Therefore, the slates we source are heavier and more durable to cope with these conditions.

All sizes are available in stock, 7-9mm thick.

Specifications

 

Make sure the roofing slate is tested BS:EN 12326 and has CE marking, this is a legal requirement.

A slate that passes the tests with A1 T1, S1 has passed to the highest level.

It is important to remember that slate is a natural product and so no two slates will ever be the same and roofers will be required to do some sorting and grading.

 

Test Results

 

Thermal Cycling - refers to the stability of the rock and its inclusions. The results indicate how likely the slate is to rust, discolour or show changes of metallic minerals that penetrate the slate. T1 classification is the highest possible result and T3 is the lowest.

 

Water Absorption - refers to a slate's absorbency of water, there are 2 possible results. A1 shows an absorbency of less than 0.6% (the lower the better). A2 shows absorbency higher than 0.6% in this case a freeze thaw resistance test is required.

 

Carbon Content - relates to how much carbonate is present in the slate. High carbonate content increases the likelihood of accelerated weathering therefore, the lower the result the better. Any slate with a result above 20% is unsuitable for roofing.

 

Sulphur Dioxide Exposure - indicates how slates perform when subjecte to acidic conditions. S1 is the highest standard and can be used in all conditions. S2 and S3 slates can be used only in areas of slight atmospheric pollution.
