Product Details

Marley Birkdale Slates: 600mm x 300mm

The Marley Birkdale, the versatile fibre cement roofing slate features a smooth surface and realistic, dressed edges. Available in a traditional blue-black colour option, the overall effect is exceptionally authentic.

Birkdale slates are lighter than a traditionally quarried slate, and easier to work – without wet cutting. The slate can be scored and snapped over a straight edge or cut with a 3.5mm toothed hacksaw.

Marley Birkdale slate is manufactured from a blend of Portland cement and water, mixed with synthetic and natural fibres.

Buyer’s 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 with BS5250, ventilation of the roof space is required (normally at the eaves and at a high level). The easiest way to achieve this is to install Eaves Vents and Dry Ridge Systems.
