Origin: The Kensington is quarried in Leon, Spain.


Texture and Appearance: A light textured surface with traditional dressed edges, this slate contains some small inert inclusions, which gives a unique character to this quality slate.

Quality: ISS provide the Kensington slate in a prime quality, having been through the most stringent selection process, whilst also being tested to the current British and European requirements.

Slates Thickness: In addition to the popular 4-7mm thickness, the Kensington is produced in a heavy grade (7-9mm), which is suitable for the northern England and Scottish markets.

A dark slate with small pyrites, which are stable and guaranteed against oxidisation; the Kensington is a good quality slate at a mid-price range. This slate is very easy to work with, lending itself to any roof type or design, which is aided by the consistent number of slates in each crate. The Kensington holds ISO-14001 Certification, which demonstrates the high level of environmental responsibility we and our quarry owners adopt. ISS have been marketing and supplying Kensington slate throughout the UK for over 20 years, proving popular in many coastal areas.
