Berona Structured slates have an appearance close to that of a natural slate. Their attractive riven surface and natural looking dressed edges make them an ideal solution where a traditional appearance is important. Berona Structured are manufactured to the highest European standards and are lightweight, pre-holed and easy to handle and install. Berona Structured slates are durable and are an economical alternative to natural roofing materials.
