Buyers notes:

As with all fibre cement slates, it is recommended that only copper fixings (copper nails & copper disc rivets) are used.

Due to the close-fitting nature of fibre cement slates, in accordance 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.
