Cromleigh slates combine the authentic look of real natural slates with all the advantages of a fibre cement slate. Thanks to their textured or smooth surface and dressed or square edges, they guarantee an authentic cachet to your roof and façade. The Cromleigh slates are manufactured from double pressed fibre cement. They are extremely dimensionally consistent and, in contrast to natural slates, do not have to be pre-sorted according to colour and shape. Convenient!
Cromleigh slates are provided with a double, environmentally friendly coating on the visible side and edges, and a water-resistant paint and resin layer on the back side. Furthermore, each coat of paint contains moss-resistant elements. In addition, Cromleigh slates are lightweight, have a low susceptibility to breakage and are easy to handle.
- Top quality for optimal durability
SVK only uses the best raw materials to manufacture Cromleigh slates. Because of the specially selected, high-quality fibres and thorough pressing, SVK's Cromleigh roof slates are significantly stronger than the European standard (EN 492), which immediately explains their remarkably high durability.
- Environmentally friendly coating with moss-resistant elements
A double coating of paint is applied to the visible side and the edges of the slate, based on an environmentally friendly, water-based acrylic resin. A single coat of paint is applied to the back side, on top of which a transparent resin layer is added to prevent water absorption. Due to the specific moss-resistant elements in our paint, moss formation basically has no chance.
- Perfect finish
SVK has a high-tech finishing line that is unique in Europe. The handling of the slates, application of the finishing layers and packaging are all fully automated. This, combined with continuous quality control, ensures that only the best finished slates leave our factory.
- Dimensionally consistent and quick installation
SVK fibre cement slates are dimensionally consistent in length, width and thickness. They require no prior sorting for thickness and can be installed immediately. This means significant savings on costs and time.
- Easy to handle and low susceptibility to breakage
Pyrites and microscopic fractures are common with natural slates and can easily lead to breakage. This does not happen with Cromleigh fibre cement slates. The slates are also easy to handle and have a low susceptibility to breakage.
