Honed slate hearths are available in 1200x800x25mm calibrated and offer all the same convenience as our riven hearths, but with a perfectly flat and smooth surface helping to bring out the natural beauty of the slate, honed hearths are perfectly suited in both modern and traditional settings.
The front edge of our slate slabs are cut straight and square, but they can be easily polished up and smoothed over with light sanding and then, if required, finer sanding to give a more polished look.
Traditionally slate has been used around fireplaces for hundreds of years, and with the quality that can be obtained from a Brazilian slate this trend is sure to continue long into the future. There really isn't any need to change to inferior substitutes when you can still get a quality material at an affordable price.

Slate is a not suitable material for open fires or anywhere naked flames or direct heat can come in contact with its surface.
