SLATE WORKTOPS FOR KITCHENS, BATHROOM & FLOORING
Slate is a fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock with a dull lustre created by the alteration of shale or mudstone by low-grade regional metamorphism under relatively low temperature and pressure. It is mined and quarried in different parts of the world predominately in Brazil and Spain to be used as premium construction stones. These slate rocks easily cleave or
split into thin slabs with high tensile strength and endurance. The most prevalent colour of a Slate is grey, although they can be found in black, green, red and even purple shades. They are available in honed and polished finishes, within a thickness range of 30mm, 40mm and 5o mm, and are suitable to be used for purposes like roofing, internal and external flooring, wall cladding etc.
TRAVERTINE WORKTOPS FOR KITCHENS, BATHROOM & FLOORING
Travertine is a kind of earthly limestone that is formed by the deposition of calcite minerals around hot springs. The water movement from the springs disintegrates the travertine, creating voids in the stone’s structure. The structure can be
compared to that of a honeycomb, where small pockets or cavities exist within the stone; these are displayed as holes in the surface when it's cut into
tiles. These holes can either be left open or filled by the factory during the tiles manufacturing process with a cement-based filler. Travertine tiles can be used for many indoor as well as outdoor purposes like for building walkways, wall coverings, patios, fountains etc. It can be available in a wide variety of finishes, in tan, white and cream tones and thickness range of 6mm, 12mm, 15mm and 20mm.
