The thickness of the slate is one of the most consistent available in the Irish Market. Capco Nova® Black slate is quite unique in that it does not have any Iron or Quartz content. This slate is cost effective with a beautiful appearance.
It requires minimal grading due to its uniform thickness, however, it will require additional attention when cutting on site and should only be cut using a disc machine to avoid excessive breakage. Brazilian slates should be fixed using stainless steel hooks and appropriate nails.
Capco Nova® Black slate is available from SIG Roofing centres in all standard sizes.
Capco Nova® Black slate is expected to exceed the life of the building. A formal manufacturer backed guarantee is given for a 30 year period. This guarantee applies when the slates are fixed in accordance with ICP2:2002 and BS5534:2003. Capco Nova® Black conforms to BS EN12326-1:2004
