Slate - Silver Blue Slate Floor Tiles & Wall Cladding
Silver Blue Floor Slate - Characteristics
This hard, black flooring slate has silver shimmering highlights with overtones of blue – a colour quite rare in slate. As you can observe from images of the display pieces lower down on this page, the slate has silver swirls across the surface.
It also has minor splashes of colour visible on around 2% of tiles - mostly yellow but sometimes orange or even crimson.
It is natural split on both sides so there is a choice of surface depending on which side has the preferred colour and texture.
It is suitable for all internal & external areas on any hard surface - sealed or unsealed. It can be used on both walls and floors.Make an enquiry
Slate Tiles - Micro-Maintenance & Utterly Natural
The look and feel of slate is an emotional experience for many people. Slate has enormous loyalty - especially with women because it is a hard wearing surface that requires little maintenance. And psst - it doesn't show the dirt!!
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 - slate is very unprocessed & very natural.
Silver Blue slate has a natural split surface which means it is split along natural cleavage lines and does not require expensive, energy demanding, processing machinery to saw it.
However, It does mean the thickness of the material varies a bit - naturally!
Slate - Ideal Wall Cladding
This slate like many other types of slate is frequently used as wall cladding as you can see from the image of an office clad in Silver Blue at the top of the page. Slate is a very inexpensive way to clad a wall.
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 images above.
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 prior to laying as explained in the FAQ section.
Sealing Slate is Essential for Indoor Areas
The images of the indoor floors on this page have been sealed with surface sealers that enhance the colour and leave the surface with a gloss or semi-gloss finish.
This type of finish creates a fresh, clean look to the floor. More importantly, it makes sweeping or vacuuming much quicker and easier.
Surface sealers are recommended for slate because the particles that make up the stone matrix are extremely fine and if left unsealed they can create a fine dust. This is not a problem for outdoor areas but indoors it certainly is!
Drink and food spillages can often be a risk for indoor slate floors but sealing takes away those worries and the sealed surface is really easy to wipe clean if the odd mishap does occur.
There are a number of sealer options available that maintain the natural finish of the slate - these are becoming more popular since sealant technology has improved so much in recent years.
