Project Description

A co-educational special school located in the North Yorkshire market town of Skipton has replaced the old fibre cement slate-effect roof tiles on its existing timber frame with Meta-Slate®, an innovative slate-effect metal roofing sheet system from building products manufacturer Steadmans.

Brookland School’s new roof combines the traditional appearance of natural slate with the advantages of today’s lightweight, pre-engineered roofing materials. Steadmans supplied over 4,000 lin metres of Meta-Slate® to replace four monopitch roofs on buildings set out in a quadrangle at the school.

The company also supplied matching flashings and dry verges to provide a total external roof envelope with an attractive traditional profile. Insulation and a breather membrane was installed under the Meta-Slate® to ensure thermal efficiency.

Ideal for both refurb and new build applications, Steadmans’ Meta-Slate® benefits from a long-lasting Nova finish and is easy to fit due to a combination of its light weight and simple secret fix joint system. Weighing only 6 kg/m2, Meta-Slate® roof panels require less substructure when compared to traditional slates and can be fitted onto both steel and timber roof structures.

To enhance its flexibility, the Meta-Slate® system can also be fitted directly over Steadmans AS35 insulated panels for warm roof applications.
