The Copper Concept

Copper Ridge Systems Works in Partnership.
Natural slate used in roof construction has excellent durability and with the shades and grain, the elegance of natural slate is unmatched.

As our atmosphere becomes cleaner with the reduction of fossil duels, (which release sulphur), algae on the roof is a growing problem. Unfortunately over time, the build up of moss and algae creates a dull finish masking the natural elegance of the natural shades and grains.
Complete Copper Ridge System

Copper Ridge can be formed in any angle or size to suit your requirements and is compatible in cost to standard clay ridge tiles, But with all the benefits of Copper.

As the aging process takes place copper sulphate is released down the roof slopes restricting the growth of moss and algae. The Copper ridge systems requires no special tools or prior knowledge to install and with an easy to fit block end system.

We considered how best to use our waste from the  roofing slate works and combined it with the small off cuts from our Copper works.

The slate went to landfill and the copper to be recycled.” We started to create a social project to put these waste materials back to use in a productive way, the base line cost of the materials had already been met, so we literary had the start of a process with a constant supply of free raw material. We wanted to make the end product functional, practical and environmentally friendly.

Diane Penrose ran a successful florist business mainly focused on be-spoke pieces of remembrance and condolences. Recent studies highlighted the impact on the environment producing fresh cut flowers.
