Slate Cills, Sills and Copings
A flat, probably rectangular sheet of slate, ideally 30mm thick which is going to be perfect for your window or wall application… …or that step.
Is it a cill or a sill?
Right then, let’s get the conundrum dealt with promptly. We think cills, because, well, we don’t know why, but like most things, if you say it with enough conviction and occasionally shout it, people will just back down and say “go on then, it’s a cill”. Our Brazilian quarry owner says “cill”. Our main trade customer says “sill”. I’ve just asked the dog but he only responds to “biscuit” so that was no help. Our internet boffins tell us to use both so that the search engine bots will pick them up. Thus, however you found us, whether you’re a cill or sill person, welcome. And for all you “coping” people, hello. And you lot after a “step”, well you can step over here too. What this page is on about is a flat, probably rectangular sheet of slate, ideally 30mm thick which is going to be perfect for your window or wall application. Or that step. We keep lengths of this slate in 1200mm, 1500mm, 1800mm & 2200mm with widths from 300mm to 900mm. But…the majority of our orders are for custom sizes; simply tell us what you want and we’ll get it cut. It’s okay, BE fussy, why should you be any different than the rest of them.
We can also finish the edges, cut mitres for angles, put a drip groove on the underside, whatever you want. There’s a couple of images on this page to give you an idea. Our imagination is only limited by your imagination. If you don’t have your own imagination then clearly we’re both stuffed. But send us a message or bell us and we’ll try and untangle the mess inside your head together. The Ribble Valley Slate couch is ready for you, take a seat and tell us about your childhood…
