| || recycled plastic roof slates |
These tiles have been much sought after by eco builders, and have just become available again after a two year gap - the German factory closed down in 2005 but the equipment was bought by new owners and thankfully has now been put into production again. Made from recycled plastics (52%) and kaolin clay (48%), these dark grey slates are fairly rigid, similar in flexibility to 6mm ply wood.
Each tile is 240mm by 380mm, 30 slates per square metre. Tile thickness is 4.5mm, giving a relatively light weight roof - approx 450g per tile (13.5 kg per square metre). Fixing system is conventional - nail through slate into wooden battens (pre-drilling not required). Guarantee: 10 years, life expectancy at least 30 years, after which colour loss may occur but the slate should stay structurally intact. Samples available (see below).
Price is per square metre (30 slates).
