LIGHT WORK SLATE ROOF Eurocell is always planning new ways to help trade customers deliver a better job. The latest is SlateSkin -a sheet tiling system that allows installers to fit a real- istic slate-effect, water-resist- ant system to Equinox con- servatory roofs in around 50% less time. It’s a way of finishing the job beautifully and pro- viding customers with an attractive, hard-wearing roof that will stay looking good for 25 years and beyond. SlateSkin takes conveni- ence to new heights when it comes to adding a beautiful and durable finishing touch to building projects. Get the job finished faster SlateSkin is specially designed to help installers stay ahead of schedule when they’re up on the roof. With multiple tile courses built into each sheet, the system reduces the time and hassle spent positioning and nailing tiles with no compromise on build quality or aesthetics. It also makes light work of roofing with loads less carrying and handling re- quired. Eurocell says next gener- ation SlateSkin and Equinox create the most advanced system currently available. SlateSkin GRP system’s 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 can typically save two operatives a whole day when compared to fitting Tapco tiles. When combined with the Equinox 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.
