Conserving the nation’s architectural heritage for future generations to enjoy is a considerable responsibility. Apart from protecting the building’s construction, accurately preserving its ‘look-and-feel’ is also an essential aspect.
We’re proud to tell you that the quality of SSQ roofing slate has led to previously being accepted as an alternative to indigenous slate by many of the UK’s principal conservation agencies including English Heritage, Historic Scotland, Cadw and both the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia National Park Authorities.
Here, only the best will do.
The very best slate that we have to offer – the strongest, the most durable, the most consistent – makes up the SSQ Ultra range.
This ‘best-of-the-best’ range features three very different slates that have been especially selected for use as an alternative to indigenous slate used in specific regions of the UK:
- SSQ Ultra Riverstone Grey roofing slate – The perfect alternative to roofing slate indigenous to Cornwall and Cumbria.
- SSQ Ultra Del Carmen Blue-black roofing slate – Whilst accepted previously for heritage projects throughout the UK, it is one of the only roofing slates approved by the Snowdonia National Park Authority as an alternative to (the now defunct) Welsh Blaenau Ffestiniog slate.
- SSQ Ultra Heavy Matacouta Blue-black roofing slate – A heavy roofing slate, frequently specified for use on projects in Scotland.
