Real natural slate: Realstone
In cooperation with our partners, we succeeded in developing a completely new floor covering. Our goal was to produce a stone flooring which is warm to the feet and equals a solid stone slab regarding its look and feel as well as its quality but does not share its disadvantages (costs, joints, coldness and hardness).
The surface is made of an thin slab of natural slate. In India millimetre-thin layers of slate are removed by means of a special technique. In order to correct the unevenness of the slab's reverse side, a warming corklayer is bondet to it. The cork-layer underneath the slate provides a comfortable and pleasant warm walking experience and increases the walking comfort. Additionally, the sound insulating cork granules reduce footfall sound. The stone surface is fire resistant, flexible, robust, and can be impregnated or oiled (on site). This new jointless flooring spares natural resources by using cork, a renewable material, and quarrying only a very thin layer of slate. The different sorts of this natural stone (slate or mica slate) and its natural colours make every panel unique and an experience for all the senses.
