The slate for excellent buildings.
With MONUMENTUM® we not only want to maintain a tradition
but also to help shape the future. Our premium product continues the spirit of
Mosel slate, which shaped the Altdeutsche Deckung for more than 200 years.
Exquisite stones combine classicism with progress. MONUMENTUM® with its stone
characteristics and variety of formats stands for the continuation of the
classic slate covering in sophisticated architecture.
With more than 40 years of experience with selected deposits
and a quality system that goes far beyond the national and European testing
standards required, Rathscheck continues the Altdeutsche Deckung with
Monumentum. Through strict controls, the careful selection, and precise
manufacturing, Monumentum has the best test certificates in terms of water
absorption and permeability, temperature change resistance and acid resistance.
Every capstone that leaves the modern production facility in the northwest of
Spain is a valuable unique specimen.
Vibrant beauty for the most discerning tastes.
Nature is a perfectionist. This is why our premium product, Moselschiefer®, which has matured deep under the earth for 400 million years, provides an ecological slate cladding of the highest quality.
We are fortunate to have this type of slate in Mayen. Even the Romans
appreciated the durability, gloss and deep, blue-grey colour of this
rugged building material and quarried it here. The slate was originally
transported along the Mosel River, which is where its name originated in
around 1588. Moselschiefer® is one of the world’s oldest brand names and still represents the highest quality slate.
For many generations, master builders and artisans have used Moselschiefer®
to create buildings with lasting value. They perfected their art in the
creation of the Old German cladding, which remains the most regal
Today Moselschiefer® is used exclusively in
gardening and landscaping. As decorative gravel in the form of slate chippings
in various grain sizes, it is suitable for decorative surface design. Screening
walls, masonry bricks and solid stepped bricks made of slate ensure a varied
and lively overall appearance.

Slate in natural colours.
What is the colour of courage?
Slate. A vibrant, natural stone. Produced by natural forces millions of years ago, but prized even today as a building material with perfect characteristics for roofs and façades.
Everyone knows slate – a type of blue-grey stone with a silky gloss. But did you also know that slate is available in other colours?
Depending on the configuration of the natural components, slate comes in a variety of subtly nuanced colour tones. This is why slate displays reddish or greenish hues in some locations.
ColorSIN® is the brand name of our coloured slate. The different cladding formats provide variety and colourful design options, which lend an individual character to each slate cladding.Charakter.
Just like blue-grey slate, ColorSIN® is a purely natural product with the same characteristics. It is extremely durable, robust, easy to maintain and surprisingly good value. A colourful slate cladding always has a special appeal.
