Cembrit Zeeland: 60cm x 60cm
Cembrit Zeeland Fibre Cement Slates (60cm x 60cm) closely match the appearance of textured face, sawn edge, natural slate. These slates produce an exceptionally clean, square-edge finish at a much lower cost than a similar, quarried slate alternative.
Cembrit Zeeland slates are lightweight and pre-drilled for easy fitting. This durable, 60 x 60cm slate is available in a traditional blue-black colour, and has a life expectancy of more than 60 years.
Any roofer or skilled DIY'er will find this man-made product a pleasure to work with. Zeeland slates are cut to size using the usual scribing and straight-edge breaking techniques. The slates are fixed to the battens with standard copper nails and disk rivets. No special training or handling is required to work with this versatile, lightweight product.
Cembrit fibre cement slates are manufactured to the BS EN ISO 9001 standard of quality assurance. The company’s commitment to environmental awareness is demonstrated by their BS EN ISO 14001 certificate. This slate meets the stringent requirements of a number of industry standards, including BS EN 492 and BBA certification (certificate no. 03/4041).

As with all fibre cement slates, manufacturers recommend the use of Copper Nails and Copper Disc Rivets for fixing.
Due to the close fitting nature of fibre cement slates, in accoradance to BS5250, ventilation of the roof space is required (normally at eaves and at high level). The easiest way to achieve this is to install eaves vents and dry ridge systems.
