Choosing a lightweight material to complete the overall look of your new conservatory roof is as important as the quality and technology beneath the surface and we are proud to work with Britmet to provide this to you in Leicester.
For centuries, slate roofing has been desired for its durability and beauty. With authentic surfaces and edges, Britmet Lite Slate highlights the handsome character of slate, at the same time enhancing roof performance through innovative design. Unlike natural slate, Britmet Lite won’t break or delaminate and comes with a 40-year Warranty of its own.
BBA Certified Britmet Lite Slate gives you the power to evoke both historical elegance and outstanding modern-day style.
Our slates are created with moulds cast from real slate to capture genuine peaks, plateaux and curves. Colour-through design and UV stabilisation ensure “stay-true” richness for traditional colours such as Pewter Grey and Plum, bold tones like Brick Red and unique selections such as Emerald Green and Grey/Black blended tiles.
Slate Mixes are another feature of our unique colour choices, they deliver uncommon elegance through boldly-appealing multiple colours to turn your roof into a work of art. Just a few of the colour examples are visible below.
Introduced to the market in May 2019, Britmet’s Liteslate is our innovative synthetic slate roofing tile made from 90% recycled polymers with all the characteristics you can expect from a traditional slate tile. Liteslate offers an authentic finish with riven edges, traditional colour choices and impeccable durability.
During the design process, real welsh slate was used in order to perfect the aesthetics and performance qualities of the LiteSlate. However, unlike natural slate, as a synthetic slate roofing tile, Liteslate won’t crack, break, chip or delaminate due to its ground-breaking design and cutting-edge manufacturing process. Furthermore, the LiteSlate is designed with the environment in mind. Over 90% of the Polymers that LiteSlate is made from are recycled. In 2021, Britmet will recycle over three million kilograms of polypropylene during the manufacturing process.
In summer 2019, the LiteSlate passed its fire testing with a BS476-3 Fire Rating and new mould designs started development due to increasing customer demand for the composite slate. We have 7 production lines manufacturing the Liteslate ensuring that 14 slates are made every 45 seconds to supply our customer demand.
As our Liteslate is compression moulded, it has detailed impressions displaying where to fix the slate making it even easier for DIY installation. It is also easy to cut as you only require a sharp, fine-tooth saw or sharp blade.
