Stainless Steel Point Slate Hooks
An excellent alternative to copper nails, these stainless steel point slate hooks by Samac Fixings are ideal for fixing roof slates. Point driven and black coated, the slate hooks can also be used on a variety of repair projects.
The method of using stainless steel point slate hooks is very cost effective which is why it’s an increasingly popular choice in the United Kingdom as well as across Europe. Because the slate is supported at four different points, these hooks can be used in even the most exposed locations without sacrificing resistance to wind uplift.
Each slate is held in place by four slate hooks – one at the head, one at the tail, and one on each side. The one at the tail prevents the hook from sliding down, the side hooks stop it from turning, and the one at the head holds it at the batten.
Manufactured from various grades of stainless steel, the slate hooks are available in two sizes – 80 mm and 100 mm – and come in boxes of 500.
