Riven Edgemere is a single-lap solution that allows quick and easy installation and is compatible with our full range of ventilation and dry fix systems.


The clean, sleek appearance of these slate-like tiles offers enormous kerb appeal. These tiles are only 18mm thick and are laid with a special broken-bond laying technique, unlike standard interlocking tiles.


With great performance at pitches as low as 17.5°, Riven Edgemere is versatile enough to be used on a wide range of roof types.

 

Accreditation to the BES 6001 framework standard for 'Responsible Sourcing' means that projects using our concrete interlocking slates can now achieve extra credits under BREEAM and the Home Quality Mark (HQM).

A randomised texture on the surface of each tile ensures an attractive variegated appearance with depth and tone, providing a finish that resembles natural slate.
