We have developed a revolutionary process in which many paper-thin layers of stone can be extracted from solid blocks of stone.
The stone layers are not split off as with conventional stone slabs, but are removed with a resin.
Each of these slabs is unique and is produced by hand in over 12 processing steps.
The look and feel of the solid stone slab are retained.
This is where the product was developed and where the entire business process takes place.
Our thin stone veneers are produced in India and Africa.
Of course, we take great care to ensure that good working conditions prevail at our production sites and that safety regulations are observed.
The health of our employees is particularly important to us: all employees in our factories must wear appropriate protective clothing - depending on the work process, these include mouth protection, ear protection, safety glasses, gloves and safety shoes.
The processing of natural stone normally results in a high level of fine dust pollution. However, Slate-Lite's innovative manufacturing method can drastically reduce this: Since the solid slate blocks are not chiselled or split during the production of Slate-Lite, but are removed layer by layer, there is no exposure of our employees to fine dust during this work step.
The process steps of sawing and grinding the slate blocks are carried out in our factories in conjunction with water and any dust that occurs is thus bound directly. The risk of health hazards due to silicosis, also known as stone dust lung, is therefore excluded in the Slate-Lite production process!
