Reminiscent of the original ‘red diamond’ slates first used in the first half of the 20th century their attractive ‘retro’ effect is particularly suited to re-roofing of properties from that era and for buildings in a rural setting. The cost-effective single lap format lends itself to simple duo-pitch roofs with no projections. It is manufactured to the highest European standards and is light-weight, pre-holed, suitable for all types of projects, easy to handle and install.
Diamond slates are manufactured using Portland cement together with a non-asbestos formulation of superior blended synthetic and cellulose fibres. Diamond slates are pigmented during production and are fully compressed. They are finished with a high quality, semi-matt acrylic coloured coating to the top face and edges and a tinted high performance binder on the back face.
