Drizzled

We call this fine grooved finish a 'drizzled' because the finished stone has a hazy look like a drizzle in Autumn.

Stair Tread/Table Top

Classic Black limestone is an ideal stone material to make stair treads, table tops and etc. Stone stair treads can last for decades, require little to no maintenance. We produce custom size stair treads.

WE have 3 typical finishing options.

For sawn thermal finish the stone is sawn and then flamed to create a textured finish. Rockface is done by splitting & chiselling of the stone and it gives a natural, irregular face to the stone face.

  • sawn thermal stair tread

    Stair tread with sawn & thermal finish to the top and edges.

  • sealed sawn thermal stair tread

    Sealed with waterproof interface agent, the sawn thermal tread turns into darker black.

  • split rockface stair tread

    Stair tread with rockfaced stair top and long edge.

  • polished stair tread

    Stair tread with polished top and edge.

  • polished stair tread sealed

    Polished stair treads sealed and wrapped with ropes ready for packaging.

  • honed top stair tread

    Long stair tread with honed finish top.

Composable Stone Strip

These stone pieces are called composable stone strips because they are not arranged and glued in the usual way to form a standard 600x150mm size panel.

In stead stones are supplied in strip-style pieces that have variable lengths of 150/ 300/450/600 mm, and fixed heights of 50/100/150 mm, as the below diagram.

  • composable strip specification

These variations make the stone pieces composable and flexible at the construction site where they can be arranged in variable sequences. Builders are encouraged to try different combinations until a unique and satisfactory arrangement is reached.

Composable stone strips, not only varied in sizes, but they can be done with 2 or more different top finishes to blend as well.

Flamed + Split

In the following projects, the 2 specified finishes are flamed + split. A recommended proportion for this type is 70% of flamed (20 mm thick) mixed with 30% of split (20-30 mm thick).

This distinctive design of strip wall cladding is best for the exterior wall of a villa project or similar.

Regular Flat/Slip + Corner/Quoin

Stone cladding is a thin layer of real stone applied to a building or other structure as a protective and decorative covering for walls and surfaces. Real stone wall cladding is a natural stone that has been quarried and used as individual pieces which give virtually endless possibilities to create random patterns and designs. They can be used not only on internal, external walls and facade, but in landscaping applications as well such as garden walls, patios, paths and stairs. Natural stone cladding can be dry staked, pointed with mortar, to be mechanical fixed or adhered to substrates.

Split & Tumbled

We are supplying a unique format of wall cladding stones which use a continuous horizontal layer of stone tiles that are cut in 4 specified heights and random lengths to achieve a sophisticated stone wall finish. The cut-to-size stone is cropped by guillotine machine to get a textured split face, and it's sawn at the back allowing quick and efficient fixing to wall surfaces using proprietary adhesive. The edges are hand dressed for an pleasing feel and they are tumbled to remove sharp edges. The coursed stone is generally fixed without any mortar to achieve a dry stone effect.
