Roofing Slate… but not as you know it?

Whether you have a conservatory, garden building, modern house or a listed building, TapcoSlate Classic adds splendour, elegance and tradition to your home. It is authentically shaped with textured surfaces and riven edges moulded from authentic slates that make TapcoSlate Classic almost indistinguishable from natural slate – yet it has an even more refined appearance. TapcoSlate Classic will not crack, break or delaminate, and its product formulation and manufacturing processes provide durability, performance, and longevity for many years to come. By providing a lightweight and easily-installed product, installation costs are lower, with less waste!

Designed to imitate Natural Roofing Slates. Tapco Synthetic Classic Slates offer the great appearance of Natural slates, whilst providing more practicality for the modern homeowner. These slates are also incredibly tough, durable and long lasting. They are both BBA approved and CE marked.

They Weigh as little as 12kg per square meter, Tapco roof slates are suitable for pitches of 14° and above. Making them ideal for homes, conservatories, outbuildings and more. The possibilities are virtually endless when using these synthetic roof slates.

The general idea is to measure how many square metres your roof covers and what pitch (and therefore which gauge) your roof is. The following table explains how this is calculated:

14 to 25 degrees (fully boarded or felt & battens) 6″ (152mm) 22
25 to 27.5 degrees (fully boarded or felt & battens) 6.5″ (165mm) 20
27.5 to 30 degrees (fully boarded or felt & battens) 7″ (178mm) 19
above 30 degrees (fully boarded or felt & battens) 7.5″ (191mm) 18

* The minimum recommended pitch and lap may be influenced by special circumstances, please contact our technical department for advice.
Note: Advice from Tapco technical department should also be sought when installing on high buildings and/or in exceptionally windy areas.
