Slate .900

In Stock profile

Blending a traditional Slate aesthetic with unbeatable security, the Metrotile Slate .900 profile is a product that offers incredible value and superior performance to traditional slate roof products in every way. 

Metrotile Slate .900 offers the same great aesthetics as traditional slate roof tiles while offering superior benefits. The deep lines pressed into each ZAM coated steel profile results in increased shadow definition, resulting in a tile that looks virtually indistinguishable from traditional slate, while simultaneously offering unmatched vandal and weather resistance. Available in .900mm thickness for unsurpassed security and formed from high-quality Drawing Grade 3 steel, like all Metrotile profiles, Metrotile Slate .900 makes a perfect choice for a wide variety of roofing projects.

PLEASE NOTE: Slate is only available in .900mm thickness. If you require a similar profile with .450mm, we recommend Metrotile Woodshake.

Case Study

Southport College

Over the past decade, Southport College has maintained a program of roof maintenance, converting their flat roofs to pitched. In 2010 they opted to convert the science block, but wanting to take advantage of what would become a south-facing roof slope, they chose modern materials to reduce their carbon footprint, save on energy costs and enjoy the benefits of a low maintenance, long-lasting solution.
