Code of practice for slating and tiling (including shingles)

Executive summary

Recommendations for the design, materials, application, installation and performance of slates, tiles, shingles and shakes in the construction of pitched roofs and vertical cladding applications.

Abstract

This British Standard provides recommendations for the design, materials, application, installation and performance of slates, tiles, shingles and shakes and their associated fittings and accessories used in the construction of pitched roofs and vertical cladding applications. Rain and wind resistance, along with durability, thermal insulation, the control of condensation, fire resistance, sound, environmental and health and safety issues are also considered.

This British Standard is intended for use by designers, manufacturers and installers of roofing products.

The main changes in this edition of the standard are the following.

a) Clauses have been introduced to reflect the wider range of slating/tiling products now in use and to accommodate the requirements of the Construction Products (Amendment) Regulations 1994.

b) Clause 5 has been revised to reflect the new knowledge and experience on rain resistance and wind load resistance.

c) A new method of calculating minimum head-laps and side-laps in slating, based on a series of factors, c and El is recommended.

d) The sections dealing with hook fixing of slates have been revised to provide specific recommendations and limits to their use.

e) Recommendations on batten sizes, marking identification and structural design have been revised to reflect new test evidence and experience of use, together with new recommendations for marking to enable easier identification.

f) New annexes have been added dealing with the design and application of pitched roof systems where insulation is placed at rafter line, and reinforced bitumen underlays.
