Surfaces & Finishes
Riven flooring slate – These tiles are the normal texture which people have seen in many properties over the years. They vary from very lightly riven Brazilian slates with the least texture, through to the rustic slates which are very heavily riven from mainly china or Africa , creating a rustic farmhouse characteristic. Available for both internal or external application
Honed slate – This is when the surface of the slate has been machined to be completely flat and smooth. The surface can be further polished to create a shiny finish. Honed slates generally do not have a shiny appearance.
Chipped edged slate – This is when the slates have hand cut chipped edges, rather than diamond sawn straight edges, this instantly creates an aged antiqued appearance when laid.
Tumbled Slate – This slate tiles has been sawn to size, and then put into a rotating tumbling drum rounding off the sharp edges, giving the tiles a softer almost worn appearance. Available mainly as a traditional pattern for the more flagstone look.
Splitface Slate – These are random thickness slate pieces glued together to create a irregular look , used internally and externally as feature walls … also make great water features.
