MockBond Richmond 10
Replacing Redland's iconic range of thin leading edge slates was never going to be easy, the Richmond, Saxon and Landmark Slates were the first of a new breed of concrete slates when Richmond was launched 30 years ago.
Redland's Slate 10 range retains and enhances the practicality and visual appeal of the originals, so it offers class-leading performance as well as aesthetics. Lower minimum pitches, unique single nail fixing and no requirement for eaves or top slates are just some of the ways in which we've enhanced their value.
This new platform now allows us to offer a new entry in this market, MockBond Richmond 10. The addition of a dummy bond line down the centre creates the impression of two smaller slate units and suggests the appearance of a small format slate when laid. Designed with a flat surface MockBond Richmond 10 has a minimum pitch of 17.5º, providing great versatility.
MockBond Richmond 10 is available in a range of four colours, classic Slate Grey, a vibrant, rich Black and two variegated colours, Flame Red and Rustic Brown.
MockBond Richmond 10 Slates conform to BS EN 490: 2011 Concrete roofing tiles and fittings for roof covering and wall cladding - Product Specifications.
MockBond Richmond 10 Slates have been rigorously tested in the Group wind tunnel where combinations of high wind and driving rain are used to determine the slates performance with respect to wind loading and weathertightness. Slates will meet the requirements of BS 5534: 2003 Code of practice for slating and tiling (including shingles), providing Redland fixing recommendations are complied with.

*dependent on fixing specification
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.
