Advantage & Drawback of Finishes Natural Slate

Updated:2013-01-05 11:37:30
When slate has a natural or clefted finish, it means that the surface of the stone is rough, and has not been honed or polished down. The word "cleft" refers to the splitting that occurs within the stone, during its formation, and which causes the uneven features found in finished tiles.
The main draw of using clefted slate is that it has a natural and rustic look. Cleft stone looks like real stone, and it gives an application an "outdoorsy" feel.
 
Another major advantage of using clefted material is that it is extremely slip resistant. That is why many restaurants and commercial kitchens use this material, as it cuts down on lawsuits from customers who fall in wet puddles.
 
Clefted material also tends to wear down well in high traffic areas. The dimensional nature of the stone tends to soften over time, and achieves an attractive brushed patina which many people find to be quite beautiful.
 
The drawback to using a clefted material is that it may be uncomfortable to walk on it with bear feet, due to the tiny ridges and peaks which poke out of its surface. More information of finishes slate stone, just don’t miss out our website ( www.stonebtb.com ).
