TYPES OF NATURAL STONES
For our prefabricated building elements we selected various types of natural stone - all with its own color, structure and other characteristics. There is similarity: they all meet the minimum technical requirements of sustainability tests according to NEN-EN norms. This implies that we can guarantee you that our products are sustainable and unique.
Direct import from quarries
In order to ensure that our quality requirements of 100% pure natural stone are met, we import our products directly from quarries all over the world. This ensures a continuous stock and we also know what quality we buy. We travel regularly to the quarries to check if the quality of the natural stone meets our requirements, but also to make sure that the labor conditions are good and that the nature is treated respectfully. The entire process- from mining to the final delivery to the customer – is completely controlled by experts who stick to the rules of our quality systems.
Not only the type of natural stone, but also the finishing of the natural stone determines the final appearance of the product. Besides it is important to choose a surface finishing which fulfills the function of the product used. Thus, for example, for staircase treads it is important that people do not slip.
In addition to regular finishing processes like light honing (matt), dark honing (satin) or polishing (gloss), we are very much specialized in special surface treatments. Our production employees use traditional stonemasons crafts such as chiseling, chopping, pointing and bush hammering. These methods create an authentic appearance. Furthermore, mechanical machining such as mechanical chiseling, steelblasting and gradinating are possible as well. With help of acids or fire, special effects can also be achieved.
If you want more information about all possible finishings, do not hesitate to ask one of our expert sale advisors. They can show you the different possible effects on a sample.
