The new Anthracite colour has been developed to provide a closer aesthetic match to natural slate and offers an affordable way to comply with planning requirements.
Daniel Redfern, product manager at Marley, explains: “There is growing demand for thin leading edge concrete interlocking slates, so this new finish for Edgemere provides greater choice within this popular range.”
The new Anthracite colour option joins the existing range of Old English Dark Red, Smooth Brown and the most popular colour, Smooth Grey
It is only 18mm thick and is further enhanced by its thin leading edge and broken-bond laying technique.
Daniel adds: “Edgemere has the ability to perform at pitches as low as 17.5°, which gives it the versatility to be used on a wide range of roof types.”
“Increasingly people are prepared to pay a small cost uplift to get a premium roof finish and Edgemere offers a surprisingly affordable upgrade from standard interlocking tiles, with a high coverage rate of just 9.7 slates per square metre. Up to 40% thinner and lighter in weight, it provides a slate like appearance on a tile budget.”
