Normally known for its grey appearance, slate can be formed in a magnificent and unique range of colours. It is an exceptionally durable flat stone which contains great attributes such as low water absorption, thermal stability, it’s an electrical insulator and is fire proof.
Slate is a non-porous stone that is slippery in wet conditions in its natural form, though can be treated for effective use in wet areas.
Very versatile, slate can be used for roofing, tiles, countertops, splash backs, flooring, stairs and cladding.
Natural split or a sealant can be used to increase stain resistance and increase or decrease surface texture.
