Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Redland’s iconic Cambrian Slate is made up of over 60% recycled Welsh slate, providing a sustainable alternative to virgin quarried products whilst delivering the outstanding aesthetics of natural slate.

The BBA-certified Cambrian Slates are manufactured with a three-point fixing to secure them on even the most exposed sites. Proven on pitches as low as 15°, the lightweight slates feature a thin leading edge and surface patterning, taken from impressions of real natural slates.

Cambrian Slate also features a cut back interlock, giving the impression of a double-lapped slate; a separate clipping channel to keep the interlock clear of clips and allow unimpeded water run-off from it; weather bars which protect the heads of slates from driving rain; and nail holes with raised sections for protection against water ingress.

Available in Heather, Langdale Green and Slate Grey (also available pre-weathered), the tiles are A rated in the BRE Green Guide to Specification.

When installed with recommended fixings under the Redland SpecMaster service, the whole roof is backed by a 15-year weathertightness, durability and design liability guarantee.
