Luxury materials require a particular approach to processing and finishing. What works for one type of stone may not be suitable for another.
We combine handcraftsmanship with advanced CNC machining to achieve a variety of styles, finishes and effects. All tiles are sourced and processed to order, and we work closely with our clients to ensure the most appropriate methods are used to yield the perfect result.
The videos on this page explain the different methods we use in manufacturing. For more information, please call +44 (0) 24 7642 2580.
Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) lathes are automated cutting machines that execute complex designs based on pre-programmed parameters.
A bush hammer is a masonry tool used to produce a variated, weathered texture on stone surfaces. Hammer heads feature five or more rows of pyramidal points, which imprint a rough texture in the stone through repeated impact.
Bush-hammering is commonly used to improve slip-resistance on stone flooring, and for its visual effect on wall tiles.
Stone tiles can be ground and polished to create a shiny finish and harmonise colour variations within a batch of stone.
Porcelain tile designs can be 3-D printed to precisely match the texture and appearance of wood or natural stone.
Natural stones often have to be sourced from isolated quarries and transported around the world for processing or installation. We use a range of packaging solutions to safeguard each material and minimise wastage.
Using our own fleet of vehicles and experienced logistics partners, we select the most appropriate transport method to guarantee safe delivery of your materials.
