UK Slate stock a wide range of Natural Slate Blanks. These are produced from our Ravendale Graphite slate which has a light natural riven textured finish. Generally with some tonal shading from mid grey thru to black but this does vary from piece to piece as you would expect with any completely natural product. We calibrate the pieces to 30mm thick to ensure consistancy and ease of fitting. The edges are a sawn finish which can be sanded / polished to removed any remaining fine saw marks.
The lengths of blanks range from 1200mm upto 2200mm long, with 300mm, 450mm, 600mm, 750mm and 900mm widths available.
Whilst we originally produced these blanks for use as window cills – we see them used on a daily basis for worktops, hearths, copings and steps. The range of uses is endless and only limited by the imagination.
It is worth stressing that these slate blanks are predominantly produced to be cut and machined on site to a specific required size, as such the edges on them will not be perfect and may have chip marks and saw marks from the original cutting to size.
We can also produce to your exact size specifications. As you will appreciate these will incur a higher price. See our bespoke page for more details..
