Specify Clay or Slate Tiles as a Preferred Finish
Chart Stables has for many years been offering enhance/strengthened structures to support clay tiles, slate and other more expensive roof finishes, to be in keeping with the environment the Stables are going in to.
Each Roof on a block of Stables, that is to take clay or slate tiles is specifically designed and made by our contracted specialist truss manufacturer to ensure the trusses meet the required BS5268 Part 2 2002, Part 3 2006, BS6399 Part 1 1996 and Part 2 1997.
The Pitch of the Roof is increased to accommodate your preferred tile or slate finish. This pitch will vary from 25ᵒ to 35ᵒ. We also put great emphasis on maximising the head clearance, within the roof space, for your horses.
The Design of the Roof in most instances the profile of the roof of a Stable block will be a straight gable to gable. We do however also offer two further designs; a Hip End to either one or more gable ends which give an acute angle to the roof and something called a Barn Hip. Either design is usually requested to be in keeping with that of a main property.
Our Chester Range of Stables is designed specifically to take specialist roof trusses and both the eaves and apex heights are increased accordingly.
We Would Recommend checking with your local Planning Authority if there are restrictions on the overall height of your Stables that you would not be permitted to exceed.
