PRODUCT INFORMATION: Natural Building Stone & Walling Stone

GENERAL
Slate from the Delabole Quarry is universally acknowledged for its outstanding quality. Delabole Slate is hard-wearing, non combustible, resistant to sulphuric acid, atmospheric pollution, normal heat and temperature changes.

WEATHER RESISTANCE
Delabole Slate is practically impermeable to water, having an average absorption value of less than 0.1% by weight. The slate does not delaminate or flake when subjected to soaking and drying cycles. These properties make Delabole building & walling stone ideal for external walls and weather curtains.
