Alpina natural slate roof

Alpina natural slate specified for coastal resort redevelopment

  • 7 Sep 2016

Cembrit’s Alpina natural slate has been selected for use in the redevelopment and refurbishment of North Devon’s Woolacombe Bay Holiday Village.

Located in the Devonshire parish of Mortehoe, the prize-winning holiday park is a popular destination with vacationing families. The resort has recently been redeveloped and extended under a multi-million pound construction project.

Its old entertainment complex is a single-storey brick building, which was erected in the 1970s. As part of the renovation project, a large building was designed to act as a suitable extension for the listed building.

The new building was conceived by Peregrine Mears Architects. Cembrit’s Alpina natural slates were specified to provide a contemporary roof covering for the complex’s multi-pitched roof.

DJT Roofing was contracted to install around 35,000 Alpina slates in a grey/green shade. The company utilised the hook fixing method to ensure the slates were secure; they were locked together to achieve an orderly finish.

Boasting the ability to withstand severe weather conditions, the natural slate was deemed suitable for the coastal development. The flat-surfaced product is also resistant to the effects of sunlight, acid rain and ultra-violet light.

Alpina has been tested to ensure compliance with BS EN 12326-1:2004; it contains no unstable materials, such as pyrites, carbon and un-oxidised irons.

Selected from Brazilian deposits, the natural slate is produced at several facilities based in Papagaios. It is available in a range of sizes and two colours – grey/green and graphite.
