Authentic replication of natural slate
Durable porcelain construction
Slip resistant matt finish
Large format means fewer grout lines
Low water absorption makes this tile suitable for outdoor use
Infuse your exteriors with the earthy grandeur of black slate, only minus the price tag and post-installation upkeep. Nature Black Slate is created using the very latest in HD inkjet printing technology, meaning that telling these hardwearing porcelain tiles from slate aged for thousands of years and hewn from the earth is nigh on impossible. Ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, Nature Black Slate can be used to create a continuous design language when installed in rooms that spill out into same-level patios and verandas. Nature Black Slate does not require sealing once installed and, thanks to its robust composition, is capable of withstanding both the elements and heavy foot traffic.

Are these tiles suitable for underfloor heating?
Our advice: These are suitable for use with underfloor heating.
Are these suitable for a wet room and if so could they be used on the walls as well as the floor?
Our advice: These tiles are suitable, however, we recommend ordering a sample to test the suitability of the tile for your specific needs.
Are the tiles textured? Or do they have a â€œstandardâ€ porcelain finish to touch?

Hi, these are 10mm deep Is there a minimum specific depth for tiles for outdoor use? The areas of our garden have different levels and have different bases at the moment. If I used these tiles would all the bases have to be concrete levelled 1st?
Our advice: These tiles would be fine to use outside. these would need to be laid on a flat solid concrete bed, so all outdoor surfaces would need to be levelled first.
