Spanish Slate Quarries UK Ltd

SSQ Del Carmen roofing slate, with its distinctive faintly-rippled riven texture, deep blue-black unfading colour and characteristic longitudinal grain, will crown your building in truly spectacular style.

SSQ Del Carmen slate is mined at the Del Carmen quarry, one of the largest quarries in North-West Spain. The quarry is located in the Cabrera Mountains, an area that contains uninterrupted seams of high-quality slate.

SSQ’s long-term partnership with the Del Carmen quarry has led to the production of exceptionally high-quality roofing slate for over three decades.

In addition to passing SSQ’s own, rigorous quality control tests, SSQ Del Carmen Ultra roofing slate has been tested in accordance with EN 12326, carries the CE marking and is classified as ‘W1-T1-S1’.

SSQ Del Carmen roofing slate has been accepted by many of the UK’s heritage agencies for use on restoration projects or within conservation areas.

SSQ Del Carmen roofing slate has a distinctive riven texture; the deep blue-black colour is totally natural and will not fade, even in the strongest sunlight.

SSQ Del Carmen Ultra roofing slate is covered by a 100-year guarantee.
