Snowdon® Slate

Re-engineered for 2018 the Snowdon® is a large format, interlocking clay tile, which looks like a natural slate.  It’s improved riven (textured) surface, rectangular format and dressed edges mean that it is closer than ever to the appearance of a natural quarried slate.  Its clay composition means that the Snowdon's black colour will be permanent and unfading for decades to come!  

When it comes to value for money Snowdon is the market leader, it is simple and cost effective to install with just over 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).

Please note that customers using existing stocks of the original Snowdon should refer to the Snowdon brochure for technical information.  Technical info for the revised product (April 2018) can be found on the tab selection below.
