Welsh Slate Flooring and Paving

Welsh Slate Flooring and Paving has been used for many hundreds of years across the UK Ireland and beyond.  In many historic places the original Welsh Slate flooring is still in place.  Its hard-wearing non-slip properties, resistance to chemical attack and high compressive and flexural strength make it the ideal choice for foot or heavy traffic.  It is available in both the well known 'heather-blue' colour and in the dark blue-grey Cwt material.  The slate is available in a range of sizes from 30mm to 100mm. 

NOTE - Also now available - fixed quantity 'patio packs' covering 14.8sqm.  A great way to buy Penrhyn paving at an economical price. See spec table for sizes and further info!
