The Shetland® is a large format, interlocking flat clay slate. It’s smooth surface, rectangular format and crisp edges give it a beautiful aesthetic on the roof. The colour is permanent and unfading and it will last for decades! Available in a range of colours, the Shetland is available in the standard enamel finish, and inkjet finish. This printed finish can be in a plain colour or can be made to match or replicate an existing roof covering.
The Shetland offers a marginal saving on the Snowdon Slate and like the Snowdon it is simple and cost effective to install with around 10 tiles required per square metre with no sorting or grading required (this is in contrast to traditional slating which requires 20 tiles per square metre with extensive sorting and grading). The Shetland is suitable for pitches down to 17.5 degrees but may also be used as low as *12.5 degrees (*please consult the LBS technical department for advice before commencing any work).
Shetland must be fully fitted to comply with BS 5534: 2014 + A2:2018 and S.R. 82: 2017. LBS Shetland Clay has been designed and tested in partnership with our manufacturer, specifically with the harsh UK and Irish climate in mind.
