American Method - Uniform thickness, generally rectangular in shape, with straight or irregular edges. They are intended to be laid with a minimum 2-in. (51-mm) head lap and with no side lap and to provide double coverage. They may be made either as individual or multiple units to simulate the appearance of individual shingles.

Dutch or Scotch Method (Including Ranch Design) - Uniform thickness with straight or irregular edges and designed to be laid with a lap at the top and on one side of each shingle.

Dutch - Square in shape.

Ranch - Oblong-rectangular in shape, with the greater dimension horizontal.

French or Hexagonal Method - Uniform thickness, square in shape, having at least three corners clipped to give the desired pattern when the shingles are laid with their diagonals perpendicular to the eave of the roof, with their apex sides lapped.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in parentheses are for information only.

Warning - Breathing of asbestos dust is hazardous. Asbestos and asbestos products present demonstrated health risks for users and for those with whom they come into contact. In addition to other precautions, when working with asbestos-cement products, minimize the dust that results. For information on the safe use of chrysotile asbestos, refer to "Safe Use of Chrysotile: A Manual on Preventive and Control Measures."(Footnote 2)
