Cambrian Slates embody the beauty and character of natural slate. Made in Wales from over 60% recycled Welsh slate, Cambrian tops the range in both looks and performance and has a proven track record even on pitches as low as 15°. Whilst light in weight, Cambrian's unique three point fixing makes it suitable for even the most exposed sites.
As there is no British standard for Cambrian Slate, it has been designed to meet the relevant performance requirements of BS 5534: 2014 Code of practice for slating and tiling (including shingles). Cambrian has been awarded British Board of Agrément Certificate 87/1907.
Cambrian Slates have been rigorously tested in our wind tunnel where combinations of high wind and driving rain are used to determine the slates performance with respect to wind loading and weathertightness. Cambrian Slates will meet the requirements of BS 5534: 2014 Code of practice for slating and tiling (including shingles), providing our fixing recommendations are complied with.
FixMaster is a guaranteed tile and batten fixing specification service tailored to individual roof designs. It's Redland's high technology solution to incorrect fixing providing the most cost-effective specification to comply with British Standards.
As no two roofs are the same, FixMaster takes into account all variable factors including roof geometry, location and products used. A full assessment is made of any nearby tall structures, natural topographical features or, in the case of airports in the locality, pressures generated by aircraft trailing wake vortices.
