Slate has a timeless beauty that will always be in demand. But the advent of modern methods of construction and the growth in refurb mean that beauty by itself is no longer enough. Slate needs to be sustainable and responsible. It needs to be easier to specify and install. And it needs to be lighter yet hardwearing, to be suitable on a range of pitches, and to deliver a long lifespan of lower maintenance and lower cost. Cambrian has been engineered to meet all of these needs – beautifully.
Cambrian Slates embody the beauty and character of natural slate. Made in Wales from over 60% recycled Welsh slate, Cambrian tops the range in both looks and performance and has a proven track record even on pitches as low as 15°. Whilst light in weight, Cambrian's unique three-point fixing makes it suitable for even the most exposed sites.
