â¢â¢THE HISTORY OF SLATEâ¢â¢
Slate is a very durable, fine grained, metamorphic rock formed in the earth over 400 millions ago. It has a very low absorption rate of water, which makes it perfect for outdoor conditions. Slate has two lines of breakability â cleavage and grain â which make it possible to split the stone into thin sheets. When broken, slate retains its natural appearance while remaining incredibly strong and durable. It is for these reasons that it has been so widely used in roofing, flooring, billiard tables and blackboards..
Slate is very user friendly giving you the durability and look of thick stone without being too bulky and heavy making it easy to hang or mount.
