Slate Flooring - Multicolour Slate Floor Tiles
Multicolour Slate Flooring - Characteristics
This very hard, dense floor slate has beautiful colours on a black, silver background with splashes of gold, orange through to small patches of crimson.
It is natural split on both sides so there is a choice of surface depending on preferred colour and texture. It is suitable for all internal & external areas on any hard surface - sealed or unsealed.
The African multicolour slate on the verandah in image (right) was laid in the 1970s and despite age and sealing the colours are still vivid, though a little dulled by age.Make an enquiry
Slate Tiles - No Building Product More Natural & Less Processed
A measure of the environmental credentials of a building product is the involvement by man and process up to the point where it is fixed to a building. On that basis this slate is a clear winner.
This slate has a natural split surface which means it is split along natural cleavage lines and does not require expensive, energy sapping, processing machinery to saw it. However, It does mean the thickness of the material varies a bit - naturally!
The pathway in the image (right) was laid by the retired owner who loves the diversity of colour with African Multicolour slate.
Slate Durability - Quite remarkable
The image on the right was taken in a Berowra home; the slate was laid in the late 1980s and is still in perfect condition.
Home owners that used slate in the 80s repeatedly sing the praises of slate for its durability and ease of maintenance.
People who have once used slate in their homes will always return to get more when they make extensions; the loyalty to slate is staggering.
Slate Colours & Texture Enhanced with Natural Split Surface
Slate splits naturally along planes revealing pallets of vivid colour not seen in stone with processed surfaces. The topography of the surface is intricate and has character, depth and grain - as you will see in the image below.
Flakes of slate that are occasionally seen are evidence that the stone is high enough quality to split naturally and that it is genuinely slate. The flakes if present, are easily removed as explained in the FAQ section.
The image on the right is of a multicolour slate that has been sealed with a surface sealer that enhances and darkens the colour. It also creates a gloss or semi-gloss finish. There are other sealer options available that leave the slate with a more natural finish. If you need to discuss these, please give us a call - we are happy to help.

The image below is of natural slate straight out of the crate with no sealant applied. The pieces were chosen to demonstrate the range of colours that are typical of multicolour slate.
African Multicolour Slate
The images below are of unsealed slate whereas the images at the top of the page have had surface sealers applied; these result in a satin or gloss finish with enhanced colour.
