Copper nails are the preferred option for use in natural slating. They are available in a wide range of lengths and shank sizes to accommodate different fixing methods and slate thicknesses. Copper clout nails are made specifically for the job and comply with the current BS1202 part 2 for their manufacture.
Copper Clout Nails have been used for many years because of there malleability, which can assist in the fixing of the slate but also, and more importantly, their durability and resistance to corrosion.
Copper nails last much longer than Hot Dipped Galvanised Steel nails, upto 10 times longer. If you are investing in a new roof – insist on using the correct fixings to ensure that the roof does not suffer from “Nail Fatigue” and shorten the life of the whole roof.
