Originating from the beautiful Minas Gerais region of Brazil, the Rio Grey/Green Slate is probably the most popular Brazilian Slate that we offer. It has a stunning pale grey-green colour, and is renowned for its durability, smoothness and ease of fitting.
Beautiful natural tonal variations add to this slate’s individuality, and make it an ideal choice to add character to almost any building. Popular with contractors, the LBS Brazilian Rio Slate is consistently produced in thicknesses of 5-7mm, meaning little sorting and grading time is needed. It is available in sizes of 500 x 250mm and 600 x 300mm in prime grade.
As with the Rio Graphite slate the Grey-Green slate is extremely hard and dense. As such, it requires extra care when being fixed to a roof. LBS recommends cutting Rio slate with a disc machine, and then hook fixing them into place, rather than nail fixing.
