SSQ’s Silverstone natural slate comes from Orense, North-West Spain’s natural slate heartland. Smooth-textured, and a tasteful blue-black in colour, it’s proved to be a favourite of roofing contractors for its attractive grain, its consistency and its light weight. What’s more, its inert mineral inclusions will not leach or run down the slate.Download the brochure
In addition to passing SSQ’s own rigorous quality-control tests, Silverstone has been tested in accordance with BS EN 12326. It carries the CE marking and is classified as ‘W1, T1, S1’.
