Benuza Blue Heavy Slate: 40cm x 25cm (16" x 10").
Benuza Blue Heavy Slates is a rugged version of the Benuza Blue 1st grade roofing slate. Quarried from the same mountains in La Bana, Benuza Blue Heavies offer you a stronger slate, more characterful shadow-line, and deeper depth and contrast than a standard or first-grade slate.
Heavy slates are traditionally used in areas of high wind or heavy snowfall. As such they are a slate ideally suited for a cottage, or older buildings where the character is key. Additionally, the Benuza Blue Heavy looks fantastic on barn conversions, where a thinner, cleaner slate would look out of place.
The Benuza Blue lies extremely well for a heavy slate - a testament to the high-quality control at the quarry. This slate meets all the British standards needed for roofing in the UK, is CE Certified, and meets all the requirements for W1, S1, T1. For more information on slating standards visit our resource centre.
