At Deeplas, we’re always exploring new ways to help our trade customers deliver a better job. Our latest is SlateSkin – a sheet tiling system that allows you to fit a realistic slate-effect, water-resistant system to Equinox roofs in around 50% less time compared to authentic conservatory tiling methods.
There’s never been a better way to finish the job beautifully and provide your customers with an attractive, hard-wearing roof that will stay looking good for 25-years and beyond.
When it comes to helping you add a beautiful and durable finishing touch to your building projects, it’s taking convenience to new heights.
Give us your dimensions when you order your SlateSkin conservatory roof and we’ll do the rest. Using state-of-the-art equipment and the same precision measurements used in the manufacture of our market leading PVC-U systems, our engineers will create all the components you need including the tile sheets, hip end caps and ridge and hip top caps.
We’ll even pre-cut and colour code for fast identification on-site. All you need to do is quickly and easily assemble the pieces in-situ to create a beautiful, slate effect roof that’s fully water resistant, superbly strong and highly durable.
Because there are fewer gaps than separate tiles, SlateSkin is water resistant and prevents getting into the roof space. Whilst precision cutting ensures that each component fits together seamlessly to further increase the roof’s weatherproofing qualities.
SlateSkin gives you the reassurance of the right fit first time, every time. Plus, you can call on the benefits of SlateSkin for projects of various sizes, making it as versatile and flexible as composite slate and even clay or concrete roof tiles.
If the conservatory roof is a non-standard Edwardian or 3 bay Victorian, then the 3 or 5 way top cap will need modifying and hip caps may need to be scribed together to create a water tight crown point. This can be complex and time consuming.
No flame spread occurred therefore the product will be classified as ‘A’.
No flaming penetration occurred therefore the product will be classified as ‘A’. The resulting classification obtained from the tests above is EXT.S.AA.
SlateSkin uses the same attractive finish as composite slate tiles. To the untrained eye, it’s difficult to tell the difference between this slate-effect product and traditional slate, helping your new roof complement even the most traditional property.
Your system will be supplied with all necessary screws with colour-matched heads for a co-ordinated finish in less time.
SlateSkin comes with a 25-year product integrity guarantee. See guarantee certificate and terms and conditions for further detail.
Lightweight construction allows you to set the roof pitch anywhere from just 5˚* to 35˚. This makes SlateSkin perfect for lean-to projects and giving you the edge over installers who use conventional roofing when you’re quoting on lean-to designs.
* 5˚ pitch available using SlateSkin only. 10˚ pitch available using alternative tiles.
** Maximum SlateSkin single facet size is 6 metres.
