What did the slate incident in Kamensk-Uralsky show?

This situation is not uncommon in our country. The media often report that in different regions of the country strong winds tear off the elements of the slate roof, however, forgetting to specify - these roofs are usually 40-50 years old, or even more. Moreover, during this long period of time, it is mainly the supporting structures that wear out, while the sheets themselves remain intact. By the way, this can be seen in the Kamensko-Uralsky incident. The roofing sheet, the same age as the BAM and Komsomol construction projects, pierced through a modern domestic car.

However, slate is not archaic, it is widely used now, but in an updated form. It is still made from chrysotile fiber, cement and water, but now the sheets are formed by new machines, and paint, varnish and protective coatings are applied to the finished product, significantly extending the service life. It is actively used in capital repair programs, in the construction of new housing and public buildings. This roofing material is the only one that has the status "NG" (non-combustible), i.e. does not burn at all, and is also a natural sound-insulating material, does not conduct electricity, does not melt and does not emit harmful vapors when heated. Chrysotile slate is used throughout the country - from the Far North to deserts and semi-deserts with a harsh, sharply continental climate. Modern technologies of roof installation make it possible to build roofs on its basis quickly and efficiently, giving a guarantee of 50 years, subject to the rules of operation and maintenance.

Moreover, modern chrysotile slate is one of the most affordable building materials on the market. Why? Russia is the world leader in the extraction, processing and production of products from chrysotile, which ensures low production costs and a wide variety of proposals. In addition to slate, facade panels, pipes, thermal insulation materials and many other useful and necessary things are produced from chrysotile. They are used to build drainage systems, sewerage systems, are used in the construction of roads and bridges (in particular, the Crimean bridge), chrysotile brake pads are used in the creation of trains. Chrysotile slate remains one of the most popular roofing materials. As for accidents like the Kamensko-Uralsky, they are usually to blame either for the wear and tear of our housing stock, in which the repair and maintenance of old roofs is carried out "slipshod", or the negligence of builders who do not follow the technology when installing the roof.
