SmartMetalGroup offers you high quality natural building material – slate slabs made of slate varieties of phyllite, known worldwide as natural slate.

Shale plates are certified for all leading markets in the world. They have been tested for centuries and are so aesthetically pleasing that they have been recognized by European Historic Preservation Organizations. The shale offered by SmartMetalGroup has an international guarantee of 50-100 years, with phyllite withstanding impacts for more than 200 years.

There are only a few quarries around the world producing shale fillet, and special requirements are required for shale roofing – the starting material must have the quality of the tile, that is, the splitting property is very important for roofing shale.

Philitic plates offered by SmartMetalGroup are derived from a quarry located in Argentina. The tiles of this high quality material are machined and selected by hand. In addition, more affordable shale varieties from Spain and Brazil are available.

The manufacturer guarantees the absence of any harmful minerals in slate tiles such as pyrite and calcite. This prevents the fading and loss of resistance of this rock material. For example, calcite in low-grade slate can be turned into gypsum with the property of expansion from water, which leads to the destruction of the structure of slate.

The filtrate plates offered by SmartMetalGroup are made of harder, denser and more durable material than ordinary slate and ideal for solving aesthetic problems in construction, which explains its successful use in the most prestigious projects in the UK, Germany and around the world. If you are looking for the best, individual and high-quality execution of your roof or cladding of your architectural project, then the use of SmartMetalGroup filler tiles is justified.

High quality phyllite has a delicate satin finish. The natural color scheme of this material includes black, all shades of gray and greenish-gray, which in combination with a soft natural sheen will make the wall lining or roof elegant and original.

A little bit about the history of slate and slate slabs
Shale is a rock formation that has formed its layered structure for 500 million years, and high-quality phyllite is found in the bowels of the earth for more than 600 million years.

The slate layers are easily separated from one another, forming plates. Such a tile features exceptional strength and durability.

Compared to other natural cladding materials, deposits of high quality shale are very limited in number.

The first mention of the use of shale in construction dates back to the 12th century. Even then, this material was already used for roofing tiles in the UK and Germany.
