Okay, I'm at the end of my rope. It appears that I will have to screw down each slate in a roof application. (Commercial project,hospital occupancy and building codes prevent us from using wood on roof). Are there any other possibilites for a non-combustible sheathing that you could hand-nail to? Our Cem-Steel, which is non-combustible and pneumatically nailable, does not allow for the quickest installation. Anybody know of some intermediate system to hang slates from? By the way, Homasote has not fulfilled testing to prove to the building officials that it is usable for this project.

Can you hook the slates with slate hooks onto horizontal metal strips rather than using nails? Some slate hooks are designed to hook over 1" horizontal wood strips. This is common in Europe. Would save a hell of a lot of time if the structure is suitable.

What do you think of the Cem-Steel product, we are considering for use as a roof deck w/ shingles (nailed).
