This attractive paving is grey in colour with slight greenish tones and a pale silvery mica sheen along the riven surfaces. It has a naturally riven surface and is sawn on all sides, with the paving slabs being exceptionally non-slip and therefore highly suitable for use around swimming pools‚ whilst being kind to the feet and also having low water absorbtion.
Alta Quartzite paving has extraordinary flexural strength‚ shock and skid resistance which allows Alta Quartzite to be used as a remarkably thin flag in heavy traffic conditions with specific mortar and bed design.
Ideal for use on pathways‚ driveways‚ garden patios and internal flooring with market places and streetscapes being further suitable applications due to it being considerably hard wearing and stain resistant.
Please note that this is not a stock product, however, it can be made to order within a 3-6 week period.
