UK Slate stock a wide range of Natural Slate Blanks. These slate sills are produced from our Ravendale Graphite slate which gives our slate slabs a light natural textured finish. Generally, with some tonal shading from mid-grey through to black, but these slate blanks do vary from piece to piece, as you would expect with any completely natural product. We calibrate our slate slabs to 30mm thick to ensure consistency and ease of fitting. The edges are a sawn finish, which can be sanded/polished to remove any remaining fine saw marks.
The lengths of blanks range from 1200mm all the way up to 2200mm long slate sills, with 300mm, 450mm, 600mm, 750mm and 900mm widths available.
Whilst we originally produced these blanks for use as window sills – we see them used on a daily basis for worktops, hearths, copings and steps. The range of uses for slate sills 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 slate slabs to your exact size specifications. See our bespoke & slateware page for more details.
