Natural slate roofing
Many and diverse slate claddings are summarised under the term 'Decorative Cladding' displaying their appeal particularly on the facade. Among the Decorative Cladding one differentiates between Spitzwinkel (pointed angle), Fischschuppen (fish scales), Waben (honeycombs), octagons and coquettes. Whilst the first three formats are primarily suitable for the optically interesting and varied design of the facade, octagons and coquettes can also be used on the roof. Here the laying principles are comparable to the ones of the rectangular cladding.
