Santos Graphite Natural Roof Slate has been selected by Slate Supplies Ltd as the most suitable Brazilian Slate for Irish and UK Roofs.

Its highly desirable graphite colour with tonal variations is a favourite with architects as it blends in with Irelands rugged green landscape. 

Santos Graphite Natural Roof Slate is similar in appearance to Irelands traditional slate from Killaloe, Co. Tipperary. 

It offers customers the benefits of a new slate roof with the appearance of a more traditional reclaimed roof.  As reclaimed slates are proving harder to find in re-usable quality, the Santos Graphite Natural Roof Slate is becoming more popular on heritage type projects in Ireland and UK.

Santos Graphite Natural Roof Slate is from sedimentary stone, it is harder and denser than many other types of slate.  They require extra care when handling and fixing, should be cut using a circular disc and fitted using hook fixings and nails.

Slate Supplies recommend using the heavier 9mm selection on more exposed sites as they are stronger.
