Shetland® Slate

The Shetland® is a large format, interlocking clay tile.  It’s smooth surface, rectangular format and defined edges give it a beautiful aesthetic on the roof, it will perform in the harsh UK and Irish climate and its colour will be permanent and unfading for decades to come!  Made using an H-cassette the tile has clean sharp interlocks and defined edges.

On top of that, it’s 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).

Available in Black, Heather Blue and Slate Grey
