The existing Slate Grey colour presents a pleasing mid-grey finish that comes from the through coloured construction of the product. However, in order to provide a solution for customers looking for a darker grey Redland is introducing Mini Stonewold in the new Charcoal Grey colour.
The dark grey colour is achieved through the application of a dark grey coating over the the top surface and edges of the slate grey tile body to give a satisfying rich hue.
Mini Stonewold is one of our most flexible and economical concrete slate products, featuring interlocking edges for simple construction. Mini Stonewold is a flat concrete slate that can be laid at pitches as low as 17.5o in both new build or re-roofing projects.
The new Mini Stonewold Charcoal Grey is offered with a matching Half Slate Pair together with an 8.8k ThruVent, complementary Universal Angle fittings for ridges and hips as well as a RedLine Vent Tile. All the dimensions, pitch parameters and headlaps are the same as existing Mini Stonewold colours.
