The Twenty Ten Clubhouse, The Celtic Manor, Wales

Cambrian Slate Grey, Celtic Manor

Grey Cambrian slate from Redland was installed by roofing contractor M Camilleri & Sons Roofing Ltd on The Twenty Ten Clubhouse, which played host to the 2010 Ryder Cup at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

Cambrian slate was chosen as it achieves the timeless look of a classic roof that will actually improve with age – just like the real thing. All Redland Cambrian slates are not only manufactured in Wales, but are also made up of 60% recycled natural slate, making them some of the most environmentally friendly resin slates available. The 2008 Green Guide to Specification awards generic resin slates an A-rating when part of standard roof constructions.

Mike Camilleri, Director of M Camilleri & Sons Roofing Ltd, said: “We used Redland Cambrian slates as they were specified by the architect. We also made use of dry fixing methods with Redland Uni-angle ridges and hips and a Redland rapid ridge and hip system. Using this method meant we took 6 weeks to complete the 1950m²  roof on schedule and we had no problems whatsoever.”

Redland Cambrian slates are designed with a unique three-point fixing, making them suitable for even the most exposed sites. Manufactured to be lightweight with an authentic thin leading edge, Redland Cambrian slates actually perform as a modern interlocking tile and are proven on pitches as low as 15°. When installed with recommended fixings and according to BS 5534, the whole roof is backed by the unique Redland 15 Year Roof System Guarantee.

The Celtic Manor Resort is set in 1400 acres of panoramic parkland at the gateway to Wales, offering two hotels and three top class 18 hole golf courses as well as extensive dining and conference facilities. The Twenty Ten is the only course in history to be designed specifically to host The Ryder Cup and was the first Welsh course to do so.
