GERARD® SLATE TILE

Gerard® Slate has been designed to replicate the natural weathered look of traditional European slate roofs. This unqiue profile comes with the option of random patches of colour which are only subtly different to the main tile colour resulting in a very natural looking roof with shadows and crevices that entice the eye.

DESIGN

Gerard® Slate has been designed to replicate the natural weathered look of traditional European Slate roofs. Inspired by centuaries of skilled craftmanship and combined with the latest technology, Slate is completely unique and unrivelled in terms of performance and looks. Slate has quickly established itself as the number one choice for mono-pitched and design led roofs, especially in Africa where architects are not only embracing this concept, but driving it.

naturalstone

NATURAL STONE

Gerard® Roofing tiles are coated with natural stone chips, volcanically formed and taken from quarries in New Zealand. These coatings add natural beauty to the roof and a hard layer of protection from the weather. Being of natural stone, the vibrant colour is protected against the extreme UV of the African sun and will never change.

steel

ALU-ZINC STEEL

All Gerard® roof products are manufactured from alu-zinc steel which have shown in tests to last 6-9 times longer than ordinary galvanised steel roofing products. This is achieved by protecting the steel core with zinc, which is itself protected by an aluminium barrier. As a pioneer of using alu-zinc steel, Gerard® has unrivalled experience in long lasting steel roof tile manufacture.
