Fibre cement slates used in social housing scheme

  • 12 Feb 2015

Cembrit’s Moorland fibre cement slates were used as cost-effective and energy efficient roofing material in the £2.1 million social housing scheme

The slates were specified as they have been designed with the traditional appearance of a natural slate but are more cost-effective.

They were installed by Crosby Roofing.

Blended synthetic and cellulose fibres are mixed with Portland cement to manufacture the slates, which have been BREEAM A/A rated.

During production, the cement slates are pigmented and fully compressed. After the edges of the slates are dressed, each one coated with a semi-matt acrylic colour finish to give it a natural appearance.

The finish is applied to the top face and edges of the slates and a clear binder is applied to the back face.

As the national standard for the sustainable design and construction of new homes, the Code for Sustainable Homes aims to reduce carbon emissions.

The new buildings were rated highly by the standard, which assesses the sustainability of a new home.

It was awarded the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.

Cembrit’s Moorland fibre cement slates contributed to this achievement. Manufactured in an environmentally friendly factory that meets the requirements of BS EN ISO 14001:2004, they have been awarded BV certification no. 11000072.
