FASTER FIT SLATE EFFECT ROOF Next generation SlateSkin - providing both swift installation and a realistic slate-effect - is the latest enhancement Eurocell has developed for Equinox, its tiled conservatory roof system. Together, says Eurocell, SlateSkin and Equinox create the most advanced system currently available. Now with ‘multi-course’ tiles built into each sheet, the SlateSkin GRP system reduces time spent posi- tioning and nailing tiles, with no compromise on build quality or aesthetics. Its lightweight construction allows the roof pitch to be set anywhere from just 5o to 35o. SlateSkin is the only tile system tested down to a 5o pitch and so is ideal for lean-to projects, which comprise up to a quarter of all UK conservatories. Guaranteed for 25 years, the SlateSkin sheet-tiling system is not only durable but also considerably faster to fit than other conserva- tory tile roofing methods. In fact, it can typically save two operatives a whole day when compared to fitting Tapco tiles. When combined with the Equi- nox system, it meets the requirements of BS 476 Part 3:2004 for the External Fire Performance of Roofs, the classification for fire penetration. Using the technical sup- port that Eurocell provides, installers can be sure of get- ting the right fit first time, every time. Once they have received all the dimensions, Eurocell engineers will cre- ate all components required, including the tile sheets, hip end caps and ridge and hip top cap using state-of-the- art equipment. SlateSkin is just the latest complementary product developed for the Equinox roofing system, which fea- tures solid insulation panels integrated in the structure for superb thermal effi- ciency – approximately ten times better than an ‘A’ rated window.
