SLATES

WUNDERLICH LIMITED, Manufacturers.



DURABESTOS, the Durable, is made from the indestructible mineral-fibre, Asbestos, the most efficient Insulator. This is thoroughly incorporated with tested high-grade Australian Cement. Layer upon layer of asbestos and cement builds up the sheet, which is submitted to powerful hydraulic pressure, forming fine-surfaced, even-graded, finished Wunderlich Durabestos Sheets and Slates.

Throughout the manufacture, the standardisation of materials and work is supervised by a trained technical staff of experts.

For every class of building Durabestos is here to assist you in building with economy, security from fire hazards, durability, proof against all weather, and indestructibility by vermin and white ants.

How to Fix.

The construction of a roof covered with DURABESTOS Diamond Shape Slates is the same as with ordinary slate roofing, and can be accomplished by any tradesman. Set out the battens as spaced on diagram, mark on the battens a vertical line for the point of slate; this indicates the position for each slate. Commence laying at the eaves course with cut slates. These are nailed in position. Between the joints of the third row of slates commence to place the copper rivet or crampon. This holds the point of the slates. From this continue on to ridge with whole slates, keeping to vertical line, and the roofing will lie true and even.

100 slates cover 100 super feet of roofing (exclusive of allowance for cutting).

170 lineal feet of 2in. x 1 in. Oregon battens to square.

100 copper crampons.
