Spring is just around the corner and with that we are pleased to announce our new Italian Porcelain and Natural Stone Stock holding in Sussex which will be available on a next day AM delivery service across the UK.
We have selected materials that will cater for all designs and styles and benefit from matching bullnose and mitred steps from stock in our Porcelain colours. Here are a few of the new additions in the 900 x 600 & 1200 x 600 x 20mm ranges which can also be viewed in full size by appointment.
A personal favourite of our specification consultant Craig Potter and indeed the whole team is the new 1200 x 600 x 20mm Jura Grey. This material, as the name suggests, mimics the beauty and movement of Jura Grey Limestone. This ever-popular natural material has been used for decades in the interior stone industry but is notoriously hard to source for exterior as you need to have a specific bench quarried to ensure that the material has the technical performance to be used in the UK.
This material will work particularly well in contemporary projects and with the 1200 x 600 format, you have a perfect size for creating steps throughout the design. Indeed, one project we are currently working on has requested that we have the tile waterjet cut lengthways to 1200 x 299 mm to create a pathway without having to use a new material or wooden plank effect.
This classic colour remains a hugely popular material for all design styles with it being effective in both traditional and modern properties. This 900 x 600mm Ivory Porcelain has subtle movement throughout the surface of the tile and is highly effective in large expanses without having the glare factor of much lighter materials.
This material is also effectively used in conjunction with Natural Stone Key elements such as lintels, pier caps and copings which are traditionally built from sandstone/limestone block or the new build popular cast stone.
The technical strengths and character of Porcelain mean that they deal highly effectively with the daily battle against foot traffic and the elements which can cause maintenance issues with the light Natural Sandstone & Limestones.
We have seen a recent resurgence in the darker material choices by our customers and our 1200 x 600 Fusion Graphite will become a highly popular addition to our stock range. This material takes inspiration from the natural movement of slate and the slight addition of fine-grain seen in limestone.
Fusion Graphite can be used where a natural stone may not be immediately available such as the dark far eastern Basalt with its supply issues or with current extended shipping delays on Indian Limestones and Slate.
We see the 1200 x 600 becoming a cornerstone, or should that we cornerporcelian, of our new stock ranges but what about the technical data and notably the weight. All our 1200 X 600 Porcelain weigh 32kg each and many of our clients like to utilise the Grabo to help them with the install. We are pleased to offer a free grabo with all orders over 150m2 to help you along the way on those hard install big jobs!
Here are a selection of our other stock colours and we have over 60 other colours readily available for you to choose from.
