New Tech Eco Slate – From EcoDecking Roof Systems
Natural slate is one of the cleanest and most environmentally beneficial materials you can use for your roof. It has the lowest carbon footprint of any pitched roof covering per m2, and when design life is considered it’s streets ahead. And now it’s even cleaner.

The name’s Bond. Self Bond
Unlike synthetic slates the eco slates naturally fuse together once laid, no adhesive needs to be added, forming a solid membrane on your roof. This gives you a stronger, more flexible membrane, and a better insulated roof, all installed in half the time and without the breakages associated with traditional slates.
As the process relies on sunlight it works quicker in the summer months rather than winter.
No Batten Required
Installation is extremely simple. Slates are fitted straight onto plyboard or oriented strand board (OSB), a non-perforated asphalt saturated felt underlay and then nailed down in two places using the relevant size copper, stainless steel or hot-dipped galvanised nails. That’s it.
