Slate tiles can be used for floors and walls in all rooms in exactly the same way as ceramic tiles. It's also just as easy to lay. The difference from factory-produced tile is that our slate is a purely natural material from Nordic mountains.
Slate tiles are also particularly well suited over heating cables since the stone can store and distribute the heat evenly over time.
Choose from a variety of finishes in our standard range or create your very personal design - with unique tile lengths and widths that we can customise for you.

Even underfloor heating
Definitely! Slate is ideal over electrical or hydronic floor heating due to its high heating capacity (ability to store heat) and conductivity (ability to conduct heat). A slate floor with heating cables will retain heat and distribute it evenly – providing a very comfortable indoor climate.
Yes. Our slate is hundreds of millions of years old and has survived many ice ages. It is therefore very resistant to water and is well-suited for use in bathrooms when the installation is carried out right and correctly in relation to falls and run-off against drains, etc. See our installation instructions for the glueing of slate.
Yes, slate tiles can be glued directly onto walls of suitable substrates such as plaster, concrete, Leca, etc. both outdoors and indoors. They can also be screwed onto walls horizontally or vertically, and where the slate tiles overlap. See our installation instructions for how to lay slate tiles.
Yes. One of the many excellent properties of slate is its ability to store and distribute heat. A firewall can usually be clad with slate by gluing tiles or flagstones directly onto an approved firewall by Leca or on a firewall board (the slate itself is not an approved firewall material).
Yes, our slate from Oppdal and Offerdal have properties that make them stay nice for years to come, even in our harsh climate, even without any maintenance other than rinsing/washing. On a terrace with a grill/outdoor kitchen, an impregnation can further facilitate cleaning by avoiding stains. Read more about how to maintain slate here.
Slate tiles can be laid loosely in gravel. Slate tiles can be glued onto cast concrete slabs. Slate tiles can be laid directly on pedestals that are either placed loosely on a concrete slab or in gravel. This is a very simple installation that requires no glue or joints.
