Inside Austin’s first outdoor tile project with slate trigger
The slate tile project at Austin’s Stone Temple is one of several projects the city is working on with its slate manufacturer, Austin Tile.
The Austin Tile slate project, which is expected to be completed in 2019, will feature a slate trigger for easy installation and maintenance of the tiles.
“We’re a company that is focused on providing high-quality, affordable, eco-friendly, and safe slate tile products,” Austin Tile CEO Adam Taggart said in a statement.
“A tile tile is the first step to the safe and efficient installation and operation of our tile tiles.”
The Austin Stone Temple project will feature slate triggers installed by hand and then installed by a tile tile installer using the Austin Tile software.
Taggard said he and his Austin Tile team have spent a year working on this project, with the goal of using as much of the slate as possible to achieve the best results.
“The first slate tile we built is the one that we will use in this project,” Taggert said.
“This tile is designed to be safe, durable, and sustainable.”
The tiles are made with a unique combination of carbon and aluminum that is intended to reduce the use of petroleum-based materials and make them safer.
The tiles come with a lifetime warranty that will cover the tile, Taggsart said.

The Capitol’s slate sensor system was designed to detect incoming projectiles and fire them at the Capitol, which requires the installation of a slate-trigger system that can be activated remotely by a smartphone app.
Targets are placed around the Capitol to detect any movement.
“I’ve seen this in the movies where the cops are out in the streets, so I’m sure it’s going to work,” Texas State Representative Jason Villalba told The Austin American-Statesman.
Villalva said that he is planning to introduce legislation to make it legal for residents to use the tiles in the Capitol.
“Our goal is to make this a permanent installation,” he said.
The State Capitol’s sensors are used to detect threats, and are currently located at the north-facing wall.
“As a result of the attacks in Paris, I want to make sure we have a permanent, permanent, and smart sensor,” State Representative Bill Zedler told The Statesman.
The Texas House passed a bill that would provide up to $5,000 for an installation of the sensor system.
The project is part of a statewide effort to improve security around the Texas Capitol, and Villalbas bill also aims to provide up-to-date, weather-based information on the weather to lawmakers.
“It will make a difference, in terms of security and how the Capitol is going to look,” Zedler said.
In addition to the Texas House bill, a slate installation program in the South Texas city of Corpus Christi was also approved by the city council.
The city council unanimously approved the project earlier this month.
“When I first came here to Corpus Christis, I had no idea that there were people out there in the community who wanted to help out and that they were going to install a sensor,” Mayor Carlos Delgado told the Austin American Statesman, adding that the sensors will help keep the city safer and more secure.
In November, Texas lawmakers approved a bill to provide $3 million in grants for local governments to purchase and install the sensors.
