Filleti stone echoes European traditions of durable, attractive paving. Long, narrow pieces of stone of varying lengths give a textured look to your landscape, courtyard or driveway. The combined compressive and flexural strength of natural slate provides an ideal surface for heavy loads. Filetti slate’s impermeable structure, resistance to harsh climate conditions and slip-resistant features make it practical for exterior applications that receive direct sunlight or rain.
The warm hues of grey complement any design and colour scheme. Filetti works well with curved designs, including paths, borders, courtyards and driveways. It can also be used indoors around fireplaces, as entryways or as flooring. Filetti paving complements architectural styles from classic to modern.
Thickness ranges from 30 mm to 50 mm. Width varies between 30 mm and 60 mm.
Athenastone® slate comes from established quarries in Europe. Expert masons cut slabs parallel to the natural layers of the stone to accentuate its attractive features and colours. Using special tools, the slabs are formed into smooth, flat sheets. The stone is sorted and graded, allowing us to bring high-grade, natural slate products to our customers in a variety of styles, including filetti, which are long, narrow pieces that work well as paving and cladding. Hand-split cobblestones, hand-cut stepping stones and crazy & irregular pavers that can create looks ranging from classic to rustic. Of course, we can also make to order according to design requirements.
Slate is a foliated rock. During the process of metamorphism, the minerals become arranged in parallel sheets or plates, giving it a striated or banded appearance. Its fine-grained texture makes it highly suitable for outdoor use. It is resistant to heat and freezing and has a high slip slip-resistant rating.
