Type of works: supply and installation of Sandtoft's BritLock slate roof tiles.
Ayrshire-based property developer ATD Developments, has specified Sandtoft's interlocking BritLock slate for its Fenwick Glade development, a prestigious scheme of just nine bespoke properties in the village of Fenwick, Ayrshire.
Made from 80% natural slate, the BritLock has the same appearance as natural slate and meets the requirements of the local planning authority, who specified a natural roof covering for the properties, which are situated in a conservation area.
Donna Higgins, Director, ATD Developments, said: "Being in a conservation area, it was important that we used a natural roof material which reflected the local surroundings. We took a number of options to the local planners and they specified the BritLock slate.
"We had originally considered using natural quarried slate but the BritLock enabled us to achieve an authentic slate appearance with a better finish at a significantly reduced cost. The interlocking design of the BritLock meant that we also saved both time and money on installation.
"The overall finish of the roofs is fantastic and the properties have been in high demand. This development has proved very popular with buyers - all of the properties that we have released to date have sold within weeks and one sold in just six days."
Nick Oldridge, Sales & Marketing Director at Sandtoft added: "The BritLock is the ideal solution for developers looking for a cost-effective, green roof slate. Manufactured from recycled UK slate in our carbon neutral plant, using 100% green electricity, the BritLock's interlocking lightweight design saves energy in production, transportation and installation and as a result is one of the most sustainable roofing solutions currently available in the UK."
