We are the UKs premier Slate /
Stone Tile Specialist with over 40 unique and different colour stones
from all corners of the world. All tiles are stocked in our own
dedicated warehouse, and can be dispatched within 48 hours. You
can be confident of not only high quality but also continuty of
supply, ensuring the that we have the same or similar tiles should
you require more at a later date.
You can choose from rustic slates
with more riven surfaces to create that traditional farmhouse effect,
to very smooth calibrated slates that give you that natural feeling
without the riven texture. Suitable for both commercial uses such
as shops, museums, restaurants and bars, to all residential areas
such as kitchens, bathrooms, conservatories hallways etc. Stone
tiles once sealed will only require occasional cleaning or mopping.
A stone or slate floor will last a lifetime.
The Brazilian slates are calibrated
to very small nominal tolerances, if you are looking for a very
contemporary uniform floor with minimal variation we would recommend
a slate from this range.
All our Chinese and Indian slates
are now gauged, this means some or all of he tiles will be lightly
machined on the reverse reducing the thickness variations. This
will reduce labour, fixing time and adhesive costs. Therefore making
it easier to create an even, flatter more consistent floor level
with less steps and dips.
Please do not hesitate to contact
us if you have any technical queries or would simply like to talk
to somebody about the suitability of natural flooring slates.
Bullnosed 900 x 300 mm steps in

Bespoke bullnosing of slates for steps, edges and copings also available

We do not generally recommend using
the thinner flooring tiles externally. Whilst many thinner stones
are physically suitable to withstand external temperatures, the
thinner tiles in extreme temperatures will heat up and expand more
quickly than the subfloor and/or in prolonged frost any water under
the tile may freeze, both in some instances causing it to become
detached from the adhesive/cement. A thicker stronger more robust
slab will prevent this from happening.
is a fine grained metamorphic rock. Its main constituents
are quartz, chlorite, mica & calcite. Slate is formed
when ocean or riverbed sediments are compressed and heated
by the earth's crust.
