Cembrit Does the Business in Yorkshire

Cembrit Does the Business in Yorkshire

The New Pennine Business Park in Huddersfield combines high specification office developments with appealing landscaping that is complemented by the Jutland’s graphite shades. The sleek consistent effect produced by these large uninterrupted roof slopes perfectly complements the red brick and sand lintels used on the vertical facades.

Prominently positioned close to the commercial centre of Yorkshire, the business park was built by Marshall CDP, one of the most successful family owned companies in the North of England. The eight two storey buildings were completed over an eighteen month period with Jennings Roofing of Pontefract installing the Jutland slates.

“Although this was a large project with attention to scheduling of deliveries necessary, having a local depot within 15 miles of the site, meant that the deliveries went according to plan” says Gary Woodland, Brand Manager of Cembrit’s Northern Distribution Centre. “This is a good example of how our specialised service and local availability benefited all concerned.”

Jutland is an attractive flat, square edged fibre cement slate that is manufactured to the highest European standards. Jutland slates are lightweight, pre-holed, suitable for all types of projects, easy to handle and install, durable and are an economic alternative to natural roofing materials.

Jutland slates are manufactured using portland cement together with a non-asbestos formulation of superior blended synthetic and cellulose fibres. Jutland slates are pigmented during production and are fully compressed. They are finished with a high quality, semi-matt acrylic coating to both faces and all edges.

Jutland slates are manufactured in accordance with a quality assurance system to ISO 9001 and to the requirements of BS EN 492 product specification for fibre cement slates and their fittings. Jutland slates are compatible with the most common building materials and are finished with a high quality, semi-matt acrylic coating which is on both faces and all edges. They are manufactured to a high quality and a good, cost effective alternative to natural slate.

Using skills built up over 80 years, Cembrit select natural slate from Spain, Canada, Brazil, China, India and the countries of Western Europe. From UK quarries Cembrit offer Welsh, Cornish and Westmorland slates. Quality levels at Group factories are rigorously maintained to high standards with fibre cement slates produced to BS EN 492:2004 and manufactured under the control of a BS EN ISO 9001: 2000 quality management system. Furthermore the company operates an environmental management system to ISO 14001:1996. Cembrit UK is a member of Cembrit Holding A/S (formerly the Dansk Eternit Holding A/S) of Denmark, one of Europe’s major building material producers of fibre reinforced cement products for the roofing and cladding industry.
