DESCRIPTION

A unique and increasingly popular contemporary charcoal black natural slate mosaic, Ledgestone Splitface Mosaic Tiles are made of pieces of shaded natural slate, of different sizes and thicknesses. These pieces are bonded together to produce a highly modern textural, undulating form. Split face tiles can be used to create feature walls in both interior and exterior schemes, and make for a fantastic kitchen splashback. 

What's special about these tiles? 

> Perfect for creating the popular natural look 

> Ideal for adding a feature wall into a room

> Character, multi-levelled, textured design

> Suitable for use on interior and exterior walls 

> Lovingly and skilfully made by hand 

As seen on DIY SOS

These stunning, textured slate splitface tiles featured on a recent episode of BBC One's DIY SOS. Nick Knowles and the team were in Epsom, transforming the home of Ben and Sam Laws for the sake of their disabled son. We provided 15 Sqm of this splitface tile for the striking two-way feature fireplace, which acted as a focal point in the living area / kitchen / diner. 

Sealing and maintenance 

To help keep these tiles nice and clean, we suggest using LTP Grout Stain Remover. Natural stone tends to be slightly porous, so we recommend sealing your fantastic new tiles with either LTP Grout and Tile Protector or LTP Mattstone Sealer. To keep your tiles looking fresh and new, apply LTP Waxwash Maintenance.

Where to use these tiles

These tiles are perfect for use on most of the wall spaces throughout your home. However, due to the nature of these natural slate split face tiles, we do not recommend them for use in shower areas or areas that receive direct water to the surface, since the manufacturing process of these linear slate tiles can leave very small joints that are difficult to completely seal.

We found they were bowed on quite a few tiles lot of different sizes so was harder to get them to fit together have worked with other ones but in another shade and different company and they were so easy to do and no areas to have to fill in as too spaced in places.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to give us your review.

These tiles are hand-cut and also put together by hand, so it is inevitable that there will be variances and slight gaps. We usually find that loose laying them before fixing will help to minimise the gaps and give you a better blend of shade and texture.

We are sorry that you have had difficulty with installation but hope you have managed to complete your project to a satisfactory appearance.

Question logo
Are these tiles suitable to use in a chimney stack with a stove fireplace?
Vin | 22 May 2019
0
Answer logo
Hi Vin

Yes, they can, but due to the weight, cannot be installed onto plaster. Instead, we would recommend the wall be constructed with heat resistant plasterboard without a skim or a tile backer board such as Hardie Backer:
https://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/tile-preparation-sealants/hardiebacker-board-james-hardie

Once the wall is correctly prepared, the tiles can then be fixed with a heat resistant adhesive, such as Palace Heat Resist, and sealed with the LTP Mattstone:

I'm building a bbq feature in the garden with breeze blocks as the main wall. The wall, I hope will follow an existing curve of a previous path laid some years ago. Are the slate tiles flexible enough to create a curved feature which has two different curves, radii, 1.6m and 1.0m.
Mike | 2 May 2019
0
Answer logo
Hi Mike

Unlike normal mosaics, the pieces on the Ledgestone tiles are glued together to hold them as one tile, so the would not be flexible to create a curve horizontally. However, they may be of sufficient width to go round the curve if they are laid vertically. We would recommend obtaining a sample to test before making your final decision.

Alternatively, here are some other slate mosaics that you may wish to consider for this purpose:

is there any mechanical fixing necessary about a certain height? say 3000mm
thanks
Gary Collett | 9 Feb 2019
0
Answer logo
Hi Gary,

There is no height limit to which these tiles can be installed. The guidelines in British Standards BS5385, (Part 1, 5.11 for internal wall tiling and Part 2, 11.2 for external wall tiling) is that only tiles with a surface area greater than 0.1 sqm, require mechanical fixing above 3m. These tiles are only 0.05sqm so can, therefore, be installed by normal means at any height.

The background should be of suitable weight-bearing construction and the tiles fixed with a cement based adhesive. As well as a serration of adhesive on the walls, we also advise a skim of adhesive on the back of the tile, to ensure any voids are filled:

Do you have the Splitface Black Corner Wall Tiles that go with this range?
Spencer Carter | 14 Nov 2018
0
Answer logo
Hi Spencer,

The main tiles are the only ones that are available in the range. For tiling around external corners, you have three options.
The first is to tile the facing wall, overhanging the end and butting the tiles on the return wall to the back of the front tiles.
The second is to mitre corner pieces so that they appear to wrap around the corner.
The third is to purchase a trim of sufficient depth to cloak the edges, however the tiles will take a fair amount of adjustment due to the varying thicknesses within a single tile:

I would use these tiles for outside cladding. After sealing, how often would I need to reseal over time?
Ed Docherty | 27 Oct 2018
0
Answer logo
Hi Ed,

For external use we would recommend using either the LTP Mattstone or LTP Colour Intensifier. Following a couple of coats on installation, the seal can remain effective for up to 5-6 years. However we would recommend checking the seal every 2 years and top up as required:

Hi. I'm tilling am outside wall. Do I tile to the bottom of the wall and use the sealer or do I leave an inch gap so water cannot travel up the tile. The fall of the patio is away from the wall. Thanks
Phil | 16 May 2018
0
Answer logo
Hi Phil,

We would normally suggest a gap of 5-10mm is sufficient but the gap is mainly used as a buffer for potential thermal movement. This gap will allow water to run out but as the tiles are butted together and left ungrouted, so there is ample opportunity for the tiles to "air out" and moisture to evaporate so you can apply a bead of external grade flexible silicone if required.

Can these tiles be used on a outdoor water feature
Dominic Liddy | 30 Apr 2018

Answer logo
Hi Dominic,

Slate can be used externally and will be suitable for inside a running water feature. They would need to be installed on a suitable background with a cement based adhesive such as Stand Flex and sealed with the LTP Colour Intensifier:

If Ledgestone charcoal black split faced tiles are made of slate they are non porous so why do they have to be sealed
Ralph Hay | 27 Apr 2018
0
Answer logo
Hi Ray,

Slate, as with any natural stone, is a porous material and will therefore absorb moisture unless sealed correctly with the LTP Mattstone sealer:
https://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/ltp-cleaning-protecting-ltp-mattstone-tile-sealer-11256

If you would like a similar effect without the sealing requirement, we have a glazed porcelain version that is impervious to moisture intake:

Andrea | 19 Apr 2018

Answer logo
Hi Andrea

Yes these tiles are suitable for external use and we would recommend sealing them with a couple of coats of the LTP Colour Intensifier to enhance performance against bad weather. If you are tiling the front and two ends, the exact measurement is 2.6 sqm but we would advise ordering 3 sqm to allow for cuts and wastage.

Lynne | 2 Apr 2018

Hi Lynne,

These tiles are ok for use externally. However we would need to see images of the wall before advising if it is suitable. Most external tiling is recommended to go on to brick or rendered surfaces, but if you can send the images to sales@wallsandfloors.co.uk we will be able to advise you further on preparation and fixing methods.

I have an old, damp retaining wall in my garden - would these work to give it a facelift?
Jo Scott | 29 Mar 2018
0
Answer logo
Hi Jo,

These tiles are perfectly fine for exterior use. Ideally the back of the wall should have a waterproof membrane to prevent the sulfates from the soil bleeding through, but if this is not present and the bricks are in good condition, it would be advisable to render over the bare brick to reduce the moisture content before installation.

Jude | 25 Mar 2018

Answer logo
Hi Jude

Although these tiles are designed with walls in mind, providing they have a full coverage of adhesive beneath and they are not likely to be walked on, we see no reason why they can't be used on the floor in a decorative area. The will also be fine on the walls around the log burn. We would advise they are fixed with the Palace Heat Resist Adhesive:

Darren | 27 Feb 2018

Answer logo
Hi Darren,

There would not be enough room on this page to give full instructions on how to tile. Installation would depend on the area and substrate being tiled. If in doubt, have the work carried out by a professional tiler with experience in this type of material. However, here are a few tips to aid installation:
1. Ensure the wall is able to support the weight. If in doubt, we'd advise installing them on a cement backer board.
https://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/hardiebacker-board-james-hardie
2. Use a cement based adhesive such as Stand Flex Grey
https://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/toolshed-tile-adhesive-standard-flex-grey-tile-adhesive
3. Adhesive to be applied to the wall with an 8mm wall trowel, in addition to skimming the back of the tile to fill any voids
https://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/tilerite-tools-tile-trowel-8mm
4. Do not use spacers. These tiles are not intended to be grouted so they can be but up together.
5. Stagger the joints as this will help make the tiles look random lengths.
6. To cut the tiles, you will require either an angle grinder with a diamond blade, or a wet cutter.
https://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/tile-cutters/electric-tile-cutters
7. Once installed, seal the tiles with two good coats of either the LTP Mattstone or Colour Intensifier.
https://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/ltp-cleaning-protecting-ltp-mattstone-tile-sealer-11256
https://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/ltp-cleaning-protecting-ltp-tile-colour-intensifier-11264

As for the radiator, to tile behind it will need removing. the brackets can remain in place and you can tile around them.

We need to go round corners to show the shape of the old chimney breast. Any suggestions please?
Jo Clay | 14 Feb 2018
0
Answer logo
Hi Jo

The easiest way is to tile front face of the chimney is to leave a 10-12mm overhang at each side, then the tiles on the return can be butted up to the back of the front tile. Due to the varying thicknesses and additional shaping of the tile, this can be done via an angle grinder with a diamond blade. Alternatively, the tiles can be mitred.

Paul Simpson | 19 Jan 2018
0
Answer logo
Hi Paul,

These Natural Slate Ledgestone tiles are intended to be butted together so no grouting is required. Once fixed and sealed, this will automatically look more seamless than it's imitation counterparts as the joints of the overall tile will be the same as the individual pieces they are made from.

Hi Chris,

These tiles can be fitted with but with the varying thicknesses it can be awkward to get the tiles sitting flush. Most people tend to either but the side of the next tile to the back of the over-hung tiles on the other face, or they can be mitred.

How would you recommend doing an external corner with these tiles?
Sarah | 17 Nov 2017
0
Answer logo
Hello Sarah,

There are a few ways to tackle corners depending on the look you are aiming to achieve.

Option 1. Tile the front wall, overhanging the edge by 10-15mm and butt-joint the tiles on the adjacent wall to the back of the front tile.

Option 2. You can mitre the corners but the tiles will need sorting for even thickness. This can be difficult to accomplish but looks very effective if done correctly.

Option 3. Use a square edge tile trim to cloak and protect the tile edges:

Thanks
Jason Tremain | 4 Nov 2017
0
Answer logo
Hi Jason and Thank You for your enquiry.

Split face tiles can be used to create stunning feature walls, their naturally formed layers and textures offer a three-dimensional appearance for a unique and stylish wall covering. Split face tiles are not suitable for grouting which means walls that split face tiles are applied to will not be waterproof, so whilst they are suitable for damp areas they can not be used on walls that will come into direct contact with water. We do have porcelain tiles that mimic the effect of a black split face tile that are suitable for walls in direct contact with water such as Product ID 15621 or 14371.
To keep your split face tiles in good condition we recommend sealing them with the LTP Mattstone sealer (ID: 11256) and maintaining them with the LTP Waxwash (ID: 11276)
Black split face tiles are best fitted with a grey adhesive, our preferred adhesive for these tiles is the Mapei Mapeker Rapidset Flexible (ID: 10655)
