After launching its new textured Westerland fibre cement roofing products in February, Cembrit was chosen to supply 10,000 of these slates to a leading mechanical and electrical engineering company for its new headquarters in Staffordshire.
Fibre cement slates such as Westerland, are an excellent alternative to concrete tiles, where a slate finish is required. Not only do they perform well and are extremely versatile, they can also be cut with hand tools - all that is required is a scribe and straight edge.
GF Tomlinson Ltd was the main contractor on the project and site manager David Gilbert commented "Fibre cement slate lends itself well to this requirement and it was for this reason that we specified Cembrit Westerland slates. We were able to cut the slates with no difficulty and completed installation quickly and efficiently. As well as this, the texture of the slate is something that was a big selling point for us, and now that the roof is complete, we are impressed with the finished result.
