And you can use a pattern of headnailing and cheek nailing which will have the same effect of a double nailed roof but will give you ease of repair

Heyya John and all,im currently working on a job using Cupa Heavy 3's,theyve been shouldered at the top and have two nail holes in 'em,murder,i agree. Headnailing is the Scots way! No bad slate tho.
Old skool - They do conform to the BS & EN Standards . This is theyre spec http://www.cupanaturalslate.co.uk/pdfs/quarries/DOC_cupa_heavy03.pdf
I do know if you order from Hendersons in advance John, you can get headnailed crates. Or blanks which they will hole to your spec.


I just realised how old this post is!

John, welcome to the site! Is "cupa" a Scottish slate association or a standards organization over in Europe or the UK?
