Slabs are half-height versions of their respective blocks.

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

Stone-type slabs require a pickaxe to mine. Cut copper slabs require at least a stone pickaxe. Wooden slabs can be mined with anything, but an axe is quickest.

Unlike stairs, many stone-type slabs have different hardness values (and thus, breaking time) compared to their full-block counterparts.[1]

  1. Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.

Most slabs drop themselves when broken. However, in Bedrock Edition, petrified oak slabs drop normal oak slabs.

Double slabs drop 2 of their respective single slabs, even when mined with Silk Touch. In Java Edition, double slabs are completely unobtainable. In Bedrock Edition, they can be obtained through inventory editing.

Petrified oak slabs are the stone-type wooden slabs left from before Java Edition 1.3.1. They are now unobtainable in vanilla survival.

Natural generation[]

  • Smooth stone slabs generate naturally in strongholds.
  • Sandstone slabs generate naturally in desert wells, and desert pyramids.
  • Spruce slabs generate naturally in igloo basements.
  • Oak, birch, spruce, smooth stone and cobblestone slabs generate naturally in woodland mansions.
  • Dark oak, cobblestone and mossy cobblestone slabs generate in pillager outpost.
  • Oak, birch, spruce, jungle, acacia, and dark oak slabs can generate in shipwrecks.
  • Blackstone and quartz slabs generate in bastion remnants.
  • Purpur slabs generate naturally in end cities.
  • Deepslate brick, deepslate tile, cobbled deepslate and polished deepslate slabs generate naturally in ancient cities.
Villages
  • Smooth stone, oak and cobblestone slabs generate naturally in plains villages.
  • Smooth sandstone and sandstone slabs generate naturally in desert villages.
  • Smooth stone and acacia slabs generate naturally in savanna villages.
  • Smooth stone and spruce slabs generate naturally in taiga and snowy taiga villages.
Ruined Portal
  • Stone, stone brick, and mossy stone brick slabs generate in ruined portals in the overworld.
  • Blackstone, polished blackstone, and polished blackstone brick slabs generate in ruined portals in the nether.

Usage[]

Placement[]

Slabs can occupy either the top half or the bottom half of a block, or both:

  • Placing a slab on top of a block or on the side of a block in the lower half of the side surface creates a bottom slab
  • Placing a slab on the underside of a block or on the top half of the side surface creates a top slab
  • Placing a top and bottom slab of the same type in the same block creates a double slab block
  • It is impossible to place two different kinds of slabs in the same block.

Slabs cannot be oriented vertically.

Behavior[]

An example of how top slabs can make redstone travel compactly "up stairs".

Slabs do not block a vertical redstone connection as it is a transparent block.

In Bedrock Edition a single slab (top or bottom) is transparent to light, while a double slab is opaque. The empty half of a slab block is also transparent to mobs, unlike other transparent blocks such as fences and glass, which players can see through but mobs cannot.

A bottom placed on top of a hopper is transparent to items; the items fall through the bottom slab into the hopper. Without a hopper attached below, a bottom slab behaves as a solid surface.

Falling block entities (like sand, gravel, and concrete powder) turn into their dropped form if they land on a bottom slab, as when they fall on a torch.

Mobs see a slab as a full block when pathfinding. They can spawn on top slabs and double slabs, but not on bottom slabs. This can be used to prevent mob spawning in certain areas, such as mob farms.

Generally, the top face of top slabs, the bottom face of bottom slabs, and all faces of double slabs are handled as solid blocks. Due to this, blocks that require a solid surface for placement can be placed on these faces.

Double slabs are handled as a single block instead of two different slabs; as such, breaking one destroys the whole block and drop two slabs, as opposed to breaking only one slab within the block. "Double slabs" that are not aligned to the grid (i.e. a bottom slab on top of a top slab) are handled as separate blocks and are broken individually.

Redstone dust placed on a top slab receives signals from redstone dust one block lower and adjacent, but cannot transmit signals down to that block.

In Bedrock Edition, mobs standing on bottom slabs with air or another bottom slab below fail to pathfind correctly. They often end up spinning around in a small circle when they try to move.

Due to the way blast rays propagate from an explosion, bottom slabs provide extremely effective absorption to explosions directly on top of them. In some cases, only the slab is destroyed from a TNT explosion directly on top of it. Explosions from end crystals and creepers are also weakened.

Sneaking reduces the player's hitbox height to 1.65 blocks in Bedrock Edition, and so does not allow the player to walk over a bottom slab with one block of air above it, which is 1.5 blocks of space. In Java Edition, however, a crouching player's hitbox is exactly 1.5 blocks, allowing the player to fit through such a gap. A player cannot walk from a block of soul sand directly up to a bottom slab without jumping – this applies not just to soul sand, but to any block 78 of a block high or shorter, because the maximum step height of the player is 0.6 of a block. The player can walk off a bottom slab while sneaking, because the sneaking prevents falling only when the distance is higher than one half block.

If a single slab is placed in a water source block, the empty half of that slab's block is waterlogged. If a slab is placed in flowing water, a pocket of air is created in the unfilled half of the block. If the player's head is in this pocket, the player can breathe and see as clearly as from an air block. If a single slab is placed in between two water sources or waterlogged blocks, the slab becomes waterlogged‌[Java Edition only]. This also happens when a water bucket or a bucket containing a fish is used on a single slab. Double slabs cannot be waterlogged.

A minecart on powered rails is not repelled by a slab, although it is repelled by a slab with a minecart on top.

Fuel[]

Overworld wooden slabs can be used as fuel in furnaces, smelting 0.75 items per slab in Java Edition, and 1.5 items per slab in Bedrock Edition[3].

Therefore in Bedrock Edition, wooden slabs (12 items per log) are twice as fuel efficient as wood planks (6 items per log), even more so than charcoal (8 items per log), which needs to be smelted in the first place.

Note blocks[]

Wooden slabs can be placed under note blocks to produce "bass" sounds.

Stone slabs can be placed under note blocks to produce "bass drum" sounds.

History[]

This article needs cleanup to comply with the style guide. [discuss]
Please help improve this page. The talk page may contain suggestions.
Reason: Bedrock/Legacy Console: 1.9.0/1.88 added new slabs, 1.10.0/1.90 added the new textures; some old textures are mixed with the new ones and some don't exist at all.
This article is missing information about Do double slabs still only drop 1 slab when blown up? If not, when was it changed?. 
Please expand the article to include this information. Further details may exist on the talk page.
Missing Model JE3.png
This page would benefit from the addition of more images. 
Please remove this notice once you've added suitable images to the article.
The specific instructions are:
Java Edition pre-Classic
May 16, 2009Notch mentions wanting to add "half-height tiles for stairs".
Java Edition Classic
May 17, 2009Slabs were suggested on the TIGSource forums.
October 22, 2009Dirt Slab.png Dirt slabs were shown in a blog post.
October 23, 2009Notch says the new half block has nearly been finished and gives a video.
0.26 SURVIVAL TESTSmooth Stone Slab JE1 BE1.png Double Smooth Stone Slab JE1 BE1.png Added stone slabs.
Stone slabs can be obtained by mining coal ore because of the lack of inventory and crafting.
Java Edition Indev
0.3120100130Slabs have now received a crafting recipe: 3 slabs from 3 cobblestone.
Slabs no longer drop from coal ore.
Java Edition Beta
1.3Sandstone Slab JE1.png Oak Slab JE1 BE1.png Cobblestone Slab JE1 BE1.png Added sandstone, "wooden" (now called petrified oak), and cobblestone slabs.
The "wooden" slabs had to be mined with a pickaxe to collect, were not affected by fire, and had stronger blast resistance than planks, making them a useful building material.
Double slabs now yield 2 of their respective single slabs when broken, as opposed to 1. Destroying double slabs with TNT still yields only a single slab, however (when the slabs aren't simply destroyed by the explosion). It is not known when or if this was fixed.
Stone slabs are now made with stone instead of cobblestone, with the former recipe now being used for cobblestone slabs. The recipes for pressure plates were also changed to avoid conflicting with the new slab recipes.
1.7Sandstone Slab JE2 BE1.png Oak Slab JE2.png Smooth Stone Slab JE2 BE2.png Seamless Stone Slab JE2 BE1.png The model of bottom slabs now uses the bottom half of the texture.

These new slabs are vulnerable to fire, and can be collected faster with an axe than with a pickaxe. Petrified oak slabs already crafted or placed in the world remain as-is.
12w21aSandstone slabs now generate in desert temples.
12w22aUpside down slabs can now be placed by generally looking at the top half of the side of a block, rather than strictly the underside of a block.
