Slate Dust

Our Slate dust is smaller in size than our chippings and the perfect product to use as a sub-base.  It has a compact finish and ideal for paths and borders. It is often known as tailings or Crusher run.

Our slate dust is finely crushed to create a perfectly compacted sub-base, ideal for paths and borders that need a smooth finish. Also known as tailings or Crusher run, our slate dust is the perfect complement to our larger slate chippings.


Classed as fully recycled materials, slate dust and chippings from Honister are a by-product of our slate manufacturing process and are more environmentally friendly than  stone from other producers.
