Synthetic Slate Roof Tiles from Tapco

290mm x 445mm

Tough and lightweight imitation roof slate

Authentic natural slate colour. Modern, unbreakable alternative to natural slate tile for new build and re-roofing projects. Lighter, tougher and easier to work with than real slate.

Moulded from casts of natural slate, they provide an authentic texture that looks amazing - year after year, with the advantage that they do not crack, curl or fade. Designed with a curvature, called InFlexTM, to provide a secure and watertight fit that resists uplift and winds up to 110mph.

Installs Quickly, Looks Great, Lasts Long

Available in a range of different colours, these faux roofing tiles give homeowners, designers and architects the freedom to express.

Blended from dolomite limestone and polypropylene, they are over 50% lighter and much less fragile than natural slate, so easier to handle too.

Being tougher, they can be walked on during installation, without risk of cracking. This fact alone can reduce wastage by 15%. They're also easy to cut and fit, so quick to install.

It's no wonder that roofing contractors love to work with them.
