Location

  • Ramsbury Primary School, Wiltshire
  • July – October 2019

Requirements

A low pitch fibre cement slate roof.

  • A low pitch was required to accommodate the existing long rafter lengths.
  • Installation of 600mm x 300mm fibre cement slates, with copper rivets.

Why Easy Slate was chosen

Easy Slate was chosen as the key component to allow the existing roof structure to remain at a low pitch, whilst ensuring to be watertight.

Easy Verge and Easy Soaker were installed alongside Easy Slate as an enhancement to the weather protection. The overall finished appearance was also a factor in the decision.

Due to the high volume of footfall within the school, Permavent DRY condensation control breather membrane and Permalap tape were laid for maximum breathability and condensation management.

All the system was fitted as per our fitting guidelines and was installed with a dry ridge/hip system and eaves carrier tray.

The project was issued with a 40-year product guarantee where these products were used together as a system.
