Steadmans Meta-Slate for school roof in Cumbria
Meta-Slate enabled construction of over 500 linear metres of pre-engineered metal roofing with the appearance of natural slate.
The traditional effect of the roof structure of the Centenary Hall at Armathwaite Community Primary School was further enhanced by utilising Steadmans complementary colour coded dry verge system.Chartered Surveyors Hyde Harrington specified Steadmans' Meta-Slate for the project and the school commissioned Aspatria-based building specialist Roland Hill to carry out the installation (via the main contractor Atkinsons Building Contractors of Penrith).
Rory Yates, building surveyor at Hyde Harrington said: 'We chose Meta-Slate as it was the product with most natural slate like appearance which was essential as the new Centenary Hall had to strongly resemble the existing school buildings'.
Ideal for both refurbishment and new build applications, Meta-Slate is easy to fit due to its light weight and simple secret fix joint system.
Weighing only 6 kg/m2, Meta-Slate roof panels require less substructure when compared to traditional slates and can be fitted onto both steel and timber roof structures.
The Meta-Slate system can also be fitted directly over Steadmans AS35 insulated panels for warm roof applications.
The Centenary Hall extension has provided the school with a multi-purpose space which is used for assemblies, PE lessons and drama performances and also by community groups such as the local youth club.
