Cembrit Moorland

Moorland slates have an appearance like higher-end, natural slates with a less pronounced surface texture. Cembrit Moorland’s authentic dressed edges lend themselves to all manner of prestigious applications or where planning requirements demand a more natural-looking roofscape. They are manufactured to the highest European standards, are consistent, light-weight and pre-holed which means they do not require grading and sorting before installation. 

Moorland slates are manufactured using Portland cement together with a formulation of superior blended synthetic and cellulose fibres. Moorland slates are pigmented during production and are fully compressed. They are fully coated with a high quality, semi-matt acrylic pigmented finish to the top face and dressed edges, which ensures the random, natural appearance is visible from street level. The rear is also covered with a tinted, high-performance binder which seals the cement matrix and prevents sticking and abrasion during transit and installation.

A2 non-combustible

Cembrit products are classified in accordance with EN 13501-1 and are fire rated, at a minimum as A2 non-combustible or higher.


At around 1/2 the weight per square meter of a concrete tile, fibre cement slates allow for savings in the roof frame's structure and transport costs.

Cut with hand tools

Scribed and snapped, with hand tools, fibre cement slates are easy to carry and work on the roof. They lend themselves to complex roof shapes with fine detailing.

No dust suppression required

No need for power sources and ground based, water dust suppression. Slates can be worked on the scaffolding and roof slope.

Complex roofs

Easy to fit to verge, dormer, hip, valley abuttment and protrusion. Ideal for the imaginative pitched roof design.

No grading or sorting

No need to grade and sort into thickness batches before commencing slating. Saves time in on-site planning in comparison to natural slates.

Slate appearance

Dressed edge and textured surface that gives a traditional slated roof effect at a lower material cost and faster installation.
