The 80-page book, titled entitled A Guide to Double Lap Slating with Fibre Cement Slates’ provides a full explanation on technical specification, design considerations, colour availability and installation advice.
Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager of Cembrit:
Cembrit has been manufacturing fibre cement products for over 80 years. The content of the brochure draws on that depth of experience to offer detailed advice to anyone wanting to specify and install fibre cement slates.
Fibre cement man-made slates continue to grow in popularity due not only to the cost and installation benefits but also aesthetic advantages over concrete tiles. Our aim is to support this move by providing a useful document that covers the key aspects of fibre cement specification.
The Cembrit range of fibre cement slates has grown over the years and now includes Westerland, Moorland, Zeeland, Jutland and Diamond – complemented by matching ridge, ventilation 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 and a tinted, high performance binder to the back face.
