CEMBRIT - The Malthouse Benefits From Cembrit Natural Slate

A feature of the Romsey skyline will be preserved in its original glory thanks to Glendyne slate from Cembrit. Recently converted into apartments, the Malthouse is an old brewery building with a distinctive roof that has been refurbished as part of the construction work. The Glendyne slates are a perfect match for the original Welsh slate and maintain the building’s unique, much-loved appearance.

Built in 1899 the Malthouse was once owned by local brewer Strong & Co. The conversion, carried out by Stanborough Construction, has transformed the interior of the building into stylish apartments while sensitively preserving its exterior to reflect its industrial past. The roof structure incorporates two large malt chimneys and half-hipped sections in a complex design. Cembrit supplied local roofing contractors, Williams Roofing Contractors Ltd, with approximately 33,000 Glendyne slates for this project.

“Our slate specification challenge on this project was two-fold” says Rob Williams, Director of Williams Roofing Contractors Ltd. “Firstly, we had to find a slate that could match the original Welsh slate installed on the roof, and secondly, we had to identify a natural slate which could cope with the technical challenge of complex pitches and angles. We have previously used Cembrit’s Glendyne slate and found it to be particularly apt for these circumstances and were therefore confident that it would be suitable for this development.”

Glendyne is a high quality slate quarried from the Canadian town of Saint Marc du Lac Long, Quebec, Canada. A dark blue/grey, with a fine, consistent grain and no history of pyrititic inclusions, it benefits from a smooth texture and the combination of modern extraction technology and traditional finishing skills to ensure a consistently high standard product. Able to withstand all weather conditions including sunlight, UV light, and even acid rain, Glendyne is remarkably similar in character to the Welsh Ffestiniog Slate.

Available exclusively from Cembrit in the UK, Glendyne offers great value for money and laid correctly, will last the lifetime of a building. Using skills built up over 80 years, Cembrit select natural slate from Spain, Canada, Brazil, China, India and the countries of Western Europe. From UK quarries Cembrit offer Welsh, Cornish and Westmorland slates. Quality levels at Group factories are rigorously maintained to high standards with fibre cement slates produced to BS EN 492:2004 and manufactured under the control of a BS EN ISO 9001: 2000 quality management system.

Using skills built up over 80 years, Cembrit offers a wide range of cladding panels, corrugated sheet and natural and man-made roofing slate. Quality levels at group factories are rigorously maintained to high standards with many products manufactured under the control of ISO 9001 and British Board of Agrément. Cembrit UK is a member of Cembrit Holding A/S (formerly the Dansk Eternit Holding A/S) of Denmark, one of Europe’s major building material producers of fibre reinforced cement products for the roofing and cladding industry. The ultimate parent company FL Smith recently celebrated its 125 year anniversary.
