Inspired by the aesthetics of the historic towns of northeast Scotland and the performance of traditional Scottish slate roofing, CUPA PIZARRAS’ Heavy 3 slate has been specified and installed by three housebuilders for the roofing at Chapelton – a new £1 billion town being built from scratch near Aberdeen.

With Phase 1 now complete, and Phase 2 underway, over 290,000 Heavy 3 slates have been used across the 126 units built to date.

Dark grey in colour, the extra thick 7-8mm Heavy 3 replicates the characteristically thick, slightly gritty Ballachulish slate convincingly and includes the iron pyrite also found in the slates from the Scottish quarries.
