Slate Raised Access Floor Finish


A member of Tate's STONEWORKS® line of integrated finishes.

Sleek, Stylish, and Durable

STONEWORKS® Slate panels combine aesthetic and structural components into one complete integrated product, and are available in either a Midnight or Limestone color option. The surface is precision molded to emulate the ridged texture of natural slate and capture its rustic appeal for your application. The edge of the panel is factory laminated with a color coordinated plastic banding which creates a faux grout line and provides protection during removal. As the panel is made from natural products, moderate shade and color tone differences will occur and is the reason this product is assigned a V2 Variation Rating.

Slate Panels

Tate's STONEWORKS Slate panel is an integrated panel which incorporates an aggregate mix to provide structural stability for everyday use, and a precision molded surface finish that emulates the natural beauty of slate. The panel is laminated with an E-Coated steel reinforcing bottom sheet, and is available in 2’x2’ module sizes and installed in a Heavy-Duty or Box Beam bolted stringer system without the use of corner lock screws.

Natural Variation

Slate Variation

Slate panels from Tate's STONEWORKS line are a natural stone product, and all natural stone products contain some degree of variation, which enhances the natural look of the finish. This variation comes from differences in color or aggregate distribution.
Our line of finishes contains several products that fall into one of 3 categories:

  • V1 is slight variation
  • V2 is moderate variation
  • V3 is substantial variation 

Slate panels have been classified as a V2.

STONEWORKS panels are not sealed in the factory however we do recommend that a sealer be field applied to help ensure the long-term performance of the product. There are many sealers on the market and they play an important role in the outcome of the floor. The cost of sealers varies widely, and depending on the chemical makeup of the sealer it will likely affect the STONEWORKS panel’s color, gloss, slip and stain resistance, and overall wearability as well as influence the various maintenance schedules and protocols. Whether the product is used in high traffic walkways & corridors or breakrooms & food/drink prep areas will affect the sealer choice. Therefore, it is important that sealers are evaluated against the application’s specific requirements and specified by the design team in the project specifications.
STONEWORKS panels are cement-based products and are compatible with sealers formulated for concrete or natural stones. The only precaution when evaluating sealers is that much of the information pertains to concrete sealers applied on slabs and not raised floor panels. Viscous sealers tend to fill in the seams of the panels and adversely affect the accessibility of the system. Also, sealers that have a neutral pH and can be applied by spray misting vs. flooding the floor should be considered as both strong chemicals and excess flooding can have a negative impact on the floor.
To assist the design team in their selection of a sealer, we have provided a link to a sealer review site as well as a chart detailing the sealers that have been evaluated by Tate. Because it can be difficult to choose a proper sealer, Tate does suggest specific sealers to be considered in certain areas as detailed in the sealer evaluation chart. While Tate does propose these sealers, it is ultimately up to the design team to determine if the performance of these sealers is sufficient for the application.
For any sealer selected, a suitably sized mock-up of STONEWORKS panels should be constructed with the specified sealer applied and reviewed by all parties to ensure desired results prior to application on the installed floor system
