Slate has been used for centuries, mainly throughout European countries, thanks to its natural beauty and hardiness. It is still a traditional favourite that has now been renewed by the local supplier, Gryphon. Slate Black has been created here by the manufacturer to give an accurate representation of the traditional darker colours of slate that include grey and rust.
The expression, “clean slate” comes from when slate was used as a blank surface that one could start creating with.
In this same way, homeowners can use this tile as a clean slate upon which to base their new home, styling and furniture. With such a natural and raw surface to work with, the new Slate Slip-Resistant Glazed Porcelain from Gryphon will certainly add character to any outdoor area.
The large profile of the 450 x 900 mm tile creates the ideal representation of the rock.
Slate tiles have 12 varying faces, providing for the authentic look of unique foliation created when the rock is struck to be cut.
The slip-resistant range offers one other lighter colour: Ivory
As local tile manufacturers begin to master the larger format tiles, the local market now has the option of choosing a tile that has less impact on the environment in terms of carbon emissions. Talk about a clean slate!
We recommend a minimum tile space of 3 mm when grouting these tiles.
