- Additional Info
This slate is supplied gauged, meaning it has been graded into separate thickness's, and then lightly machined on reverse to remove any lumps and steps, allowing the tiles to lay flat on the sub floor, reducing labour and adhesive costs and incidence of tiles becoming loose.

A suitable sealant or impregnator must be used. If you do not have a concrete pad then the same or similar stone may be available in the stone paving range.
