Crushed tiles (rock)
Granite facing plates belong to premium materials. They are extremely durable (granite is 4 times stronger than concrete), increased resistance to abrasion and have a wide range of applications. Due to the almost unlimited service life, resistance to sudden temperature changes and high humidity, and high decorative properties, granite slabs are an excellent option for horizontal and vertical exterior facing of buildings: facades, socle, steps and platforms. Practicality and excellent decorative properties of this material makes it possible to use it for decoration of interiors. Most often, slabs of granite are used as flooring in shopping malls, railway stations, administrative buildings and other areas with high traffic. One of the most important advantages of granite facing plates in comparison with artificial analogs is the possibility of manufacturing products having non-standard sizes and shapes. It can be large sized plates, individual mosaic parts, products of non-standard configurations.
Module slabs – are a kind of granite facing slabs with standard dimensions and specified thickness: 10, 15, 18, 20, 30, 40 and 50 mm.
Module granite slabs are a common finishing material used in interiors and for exterior decoration of buildings. Among the advantages of this material should be noted strength, reliability, long service life, frost and moisture resistance, low degree of abrasion.
The wide range of colors and special structure of this material inherent in natural granite make it possible to embody the most daring and diverse design developments.
Non-standard slabs of natural granite is a material for facing, the dimensions of which differ from modular products.
The possibility of manufacturing plates with non-standard dimensions is an essential advantage of natural stone slabs. This avoids the need for trimming and reduces the number of stitches. Using non-standard facing slabs made of granite, it is possible to speed up the installation and shorten the time for finishing works, as well as ensure the reliability and long life of the cladding. This decoration creates a complete and integral appearance, increasing the prestige of the object.
Breccia is a tile of various sizes of irregular shape. In most cases, these are residues obtained as a result of the production of other products made of natural stone. Granite granite is used for facing vertical and horizontal surfaces.
The chipped facing plate has a completely or partially chipped surface. Coarse-grained granite is an optimal option for the production of this tile, since it is particularly effective in chipped form, is moisture and temperature resistant, has an almost unlimited lifetime, and is not afraid of dust and other contaminants. The chopped granite slabs are used for vertical finishing of facade elements of buildings, facing fences, socles and other elements.
KINDS AND FEATURES OF COLUMN PLATES
COLUMN WITH 2 SIDES
Has a punctured front and back parts and a sawed perimeter. The front side of the tile is pinned from two or more sides. It differs in volume and convex surface, but requires additional effort during installation.
COLUMN FROM THE 1ST PARTY
Has a chipped front end and sawed back side. The front part can be pinned from several sides. A more simple styling technology.
CUT ON THE PERIMETER
This is a standard tile (modular, heat-treated, polished or sawed), with a facial pod perimeter.
VARIANTS OF PROCESSING OF THE TILES
They are distinguished by an effective mirror surface. Features - saturated colors, emphasizes the natural stone pattern, longer life.
for internal facing of walls and floors;
Finishing of facades and socles;
Interior items, as well as elements of landscape design.
Plates with a matte, somewhat rough surface and maximum relief height - no more than 2 mm. Features – anti-slip properties.
- for paving tracks and various sites;
- External steps and ramps of entrance groups.
Thermally treated facing slabs
Have a rough surface with a maximum relief height of up to 5 mm. Features - excellent anti-slip effect, accentuation of the natural crystal structure of natural granite.
- for paving various platforms and tracks;
- entrance ramps and external steps;
- anti-slip strips on the step.
Sawning slabs facing
The surface of the plates of this type is matte with the presence of traces of the cutting tool. Features – good anti-slip properties and slight color clarification.
- for facing different sites;
- external steps.
