Slate Cladding Panels Uk

Posted on  by admin

Slate cladding panels are the perfect solution for both exterior and interior stone cladding walls. The natural properties of this outstanding material make them one of the best cladding systems in the market. Contemporary architects consider natural slate cladding an optimal material for building.

Thanks to its high performance, its low maintenance and durability, slate tiles have become a stand-out element in modern design. The key properties of slate cladding are its high durability, fire resistance performance (A1) and low water absorption. Comparing slate tiles to any other cladding solutions such as cement, slate cladding doesn’t only look more elegant and sophisticated, but it is also more sustainable.

Even taking into account different natural materials such as ceramic or stone, slate is also more resistant and long-lasting.

Thanks to its natural properties, the slate is only submitted to the processes of extraction and shaping.

It requires no additional treatment, substantially reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.

If we compare natural slate to other materials, its results in terms of air pollution, water and energy consumption, are the lowest, even to terracotta, zinc and fibre cement.

Slate cladding has a lower environmental impact than other man made alternatives.

Due to its natural properties, each stone has unique properties and performance.

But thanks to its wide range of shapes and sizes, most architects and customers consider slate as a winner between every natural material.
