Battens: 38mm x 38mm (nominal). Laying of Battens is to be commenced at the eaves, allowing for the correct overhand of slate into the gutter, then continued upwards towards the ridge. See diagram overleaf for spacing details. Where slates are to be fixed directly onto timber boarding, the boarding shall be at least 25mm thick.

Laying: Slates are to be laid in single thickness, with a headlap of 90mm, on SLATEX (450mm wide) all as approved by Installer. The lower edge of the underlay is to be kept in line with the tails of the slates laid on it, so that there is a double course of underlay, to the second batten, with a 50mm overhang into the gutter. The next roll of underlay is then laid in position, and the second course of slates is top nailed, through the underlay, to the third batten. This sequence is followed upwards towards the ridge. Slates are to be laid to straight lines horizontally and vertically, in broken bond.

Water proofing Plumbing: All plumbing requirements are to be supplied by the builder or slate installer depending on agreement. The plumber/Installer is responsible for supplying and cutting the necessary flat iron, flashings, etc. Wall soakers to measure 150mm across, with 75mm turn-up, and length 280mm.
