Cembrit’s entire range of fibre cement slates has been fully accredited by the British Board of Agrément (BBA), ensuring architects can be confident in any specified Cembrit products.
The BBA is the UK’s major authority offering approval and certification services to manufacturers and installers supplying the construction industry.
Cembrit currently holds five BBA certificates for its fibre cement slate range after completing a comprehensive testing process and successfully meeting all the requirements set out by the BBA.
Cembrit Marketing Manager Ged Ferris commented: “Our fibre cement slates range provides a high quality roofing finish that is both attractive and long lasting. Architects specify the slates for use on both residential and commercial properties, and have in the past, praised the product for delivering the desired results.”
Cembrit’s range of fibre cement slates includes Westerland, Moorland, Zeeland, Jutland and Diamond, each offering its own unique aesthetic.
The slates are suited for use on conventional pitched timber roofs with a rafter pitch of 20° and over, or hung vertically as cladding on external walls.
The slates are complemented by matching fibre cement ridges, ventilation solutions and fixings.
Manufactured using Portland cement, together with a formulation of superior blended synthetic and cellulose fibres, Cembrit fibre cement slates are finished with a semi-matt acrylic coloured coating to the face and edges.
A tinted, high performance binder is then added to the back face.
Cembrit fibre cement slates are the most accredited on the UK market.
