Slate - West Country Slate Floor Tiles
West Country Floor Slate - Characteristics
This tough, durable slate has a blue / black base colour with soft, circular shaped colours of gold, pink and sometimes green.
The slate is natural split on both sides so there is a choice of surface depending on which side has the preferred colour and texture.
West Country slate is suitable for all internal & external areas on any hard surface - sealed or unsealed. It can be used on both walls and floors.
Slate Flooring - Natural Look, Natural Feel
Slate was widely used as flooring in Australia in the 1970s & 1980s and it is much loved. The loyalty to slate floors is staggering - especially amongst women because it is tough and requires little maintenance.
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, 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 demanding, processing machinery to saw it. However, It does mean the thickness of the material varies a bit - naturally!Make an enquiry
Slate Floor Tiles - 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 prior to laying as explained in the FAQ section.
Sealants Can Enhance Slate Colour
The slate in the images below is the same. The only difference in the 2 images is that we have moistened the surface on the slate in the image on the right to demonstrate how some sealers enhance or slightly darken the slate colour.
Surface or topical sealants (eg Aqua Mix's Seal & Finish Low-Sheen or High Gloss Sealer) will result in either a low sheen or a gloss finish (see image above, right) depending on the outcome desired and the sealant used.
An enhanced colour with a mat finish like the slate on the right below can be achieved using Aqua Mix Enrich 'N' Seal which is a penetrating sealant.
