Leading premium slate manufacturer SSQ's range of Riverstone slate products is fully compliant with the latest changes in fire safety regulations, providing architects and specifiers with added peace of mind.

One of SSQ's standout offerings is the lightweight and low pitch slate Weather Pro system. It features the highest quality Riverstone Ultra slates and offers exceptional performance with the highest fire rating of BROOF(t4).

Additionally, SSQ's innovative range of dry-fix slate ridges ensures optimal ventilation without the need for unsightly flammable plastic strips, connectors or bituminous tapes.

SSQ also offers heritage valley and aluminium verge trims that seamlessly combine with the outstanding aesthetics and performance of Riverstone slates.

The Building Safety Act 2022, introduced in July 2021, became law on 1 April 2023, alongside The Fire Safety Regulations 2022, which became law on 23 January 2023.

These regulations establish duties and responsibilities for the 'Responsible Person' involved in construction, including landlords, managers, specifiers and designers.

The Responsible Person must ensure that buildings are constructed using appropriate and properly assessed fire-safe materials. They are also required to establish a comprehensive electronic Golden Thread of data and information about the building, which must be stored permanently.

Failure to comply with these changes carries severe consequences, including unlimited fines and custodial sentences.
