Black Lace Slate is a rare, unique stone used for interior and exterior applications. Because of its superior properties and performance, three dimensional appearance and rich texture, architects specify this natural slate for interior flooring, exterior paving stone, stair treads, fireplace surrounds and stone wall cladding. Black Lace Slate is available in natural cleft, honed and cascade finishes.
Silvery gray to black, and highly reflective. It has a three-dimensional appearance even when honed smooth. Natural markings occur.
“Semi-weathering”, meaning that some pieces change color when used outside and others do not. Those that do take on gold tones. (Black Lace’s weathering characteristic is an aesthetic consideration and does not adversely affect its performance or durability).
Relatively even cleft, exceptionally strong and hard, durable, dense, low absorption rate, resistant to freeze-thaw cycles. Slip-, stain-, and heat-resistant. No detrimental effects on the environment.
Depending on the application, an impregnating sealer may be required. Contact us for information regarding the use of sealers, impregnators, oiling, cleaning, etc.
