Snowdon® Slate

The Snowdon® is a large format, interlocking clay tile, which looks like a natural quarried slate.  It’s riven (textured) surface, rectangular format and dressed edges have been specifically designed to give it an authentic slate appearance, and its clay composition means that its black colour will be permanent and unfading for decades to come!  

On top of that, it’s 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).
