Spanish Slate

Spain is the world's largest producer of natural roofing slate, accounting for over 75% of global production. Most of Spain's production is centred in the mountain regions around O'Barco in the North West.

The slate deposits in Spain have varying natural characteristics. Some produce very flat slate, which can be split very thin, whilst other quarries produce slates with a greater texture similar to UK quarried materials.

Spanish slate colours vary from quarry to quarry – from Mid Grey through to Traditional Blue Greys and then onto Blue Black shades. This gives the customer massive scope to choose a slate that will suit their specific project’s needs.

High-Quality Spanish Roofing Slate

Modern Spanish slates started to make their way into the UK market in the 1980s, but this popular roofing slate has been used on many historical buildings much earlier. Churches, stately homes and historical universities choose Spanish roofing slate because of its famous reputation as an effective roofing choice.

Spanish slate colours vary from quarry to quarry – from mid-grey through to traditional blue greys and even blue-black shades. This gives the customer massive scope to choose a slate that will suit their specific project's needs.

The Spanish slates we supply achieve top ratings in the European Standard - BSEN12326. In addition, we regularly monitor the quarry test data to ensure that quality and durability are consistent in every slate we supply.

At UK Slate, we only work with a handpicked selection of quarries where we have full confidence that all our natural Spanish slates are of the finest quality and can be relied upon to perform correctly in the UK climate.
