Fibre Cement Roof Sheets
We only supply fibre cement products that are produced in the UK by the UK's prestigious manufacturers - Marley Eternit.
Fibre Cement Roofing is a perfect full replacement for the old banned asbestos roofing. It also serves as a safe and easy method of repair for the existing roof and is compatible with the 3 inch and Big 6 Profile. Fibre Cement Roofing is popular for livestock buildings because of the reduced sound transfer and condensation handling properties.
Profile 3 has long been established as one of the most versatile and useful profiles for roofing and cladding for small agricultural, industrial buildings, garages, poultry houses, sheds, stables and all portable buildings.
The products are differentiated by the size of corrugation of the sheets - Profile 3 having smaller corrugations than Profile 6. Both types of sheet are manufactured from a selected blend of Portland cement and water. This is reinforced with a mixture of both natural and synthetic fibres. The longevity of this formulation has allowed the manufacturer to offer a 30-year guarantee on our sheets and fittings (available on request).
Profile 3 is manufactured from Portland cement and water, reinforced with cellulose and textile fibres giving it a natural grey colour. Slight shade variation may occur in natural grey sheets depending on cement type.
The advantages of fibre cement sheets are:
- Can be used down a pitch of 10 degrees
