Slate is fine-grained with a layered structure which results from clay and shale deposition. Minerals present at the time of sedimentation often result in a myriad of subtle hues within the slate. Hints of colours such as green, russet, hazel and plum make for a fascinating and versatile product for walls and floors. Natural slate is more dense than many other types of natural stone, which makes it a hard-wearing choice for high traffic areas.
Like all natural stone, slate must be sealed to protect the surface from dirt & water ingress. We can advise & supply the correct sealers & on-going cleaners to keep your slate floor looking beautiful for many years to come. What’s more, a full range of maintenance products is stocked at our Trade Centre.
