Turkey’s largest supplier of travertine is now producing “stone inspired” porcelain. The result is a manufactured product, with all its inherent benefits, that is close to nature’s original intention.

The Manufacturing plant uses the latest technology to duplicate the colour variation within natural stone, and even includes a slight surface variation within the tile which results in a more natural looking product.

We stock two sizes 600x600mm and 900x600mm in three colours. The reason for the large sizes is that natural stone becomes very expensive in large dimensions, while the porcelain does not, making the porcelain a very competitive option.

The porcelain is 20 mm thick which allows it to be used in the same way as stone and can be laid on driveways and used in heavy wear commercial areas and all domestic applications. In addition it can be laid in the traditional method of adhesive or using the “pod” system.

Being a manufactured product, porcelain has all the usual benefits i.e. does not require sealing, is highly salt resistant around pools, UV resistant and is easy to maintain.

Stacked Stone Retaining Wall

Outdoor Stacked Stone – Garden Retaining Wall

The dramatic effect has been created using outdoor stacked stone on this garden sloping retaining wall next to the driveway entrance.

Stacked stone/Stone veneer is used as a protective and decorative covering for exterior or interior vertical walls and surfaces. The veneer is typically 1 inch thick and must weigh less than 15 pounds per square foot (73 kg/m2) so that no additional structural supports will be required.

The advantages of natural stacked stone/stone veneer over manufactured stone are:

  • Durability (real stone will not fade or crack over time. It lasts for centuries)
  • Aesthetics (Made by Mother Nature, its look is generally viewed as superior to the man-made painted cultured stone product. Characteristics which identify natural stone such as the texture,moss or lichen growing on the rock, unique shapes, etc. cannot be matched with manufactured stone.)
  • Its semi-light weight eliminates the need for wall ties or footings and make it easier and cheaper to build.
  • There are also disadvantages for natural stone compared to manufactured stone veneer:
  • cost saving (material costs, see above)

Dry stone (also called drystack) is a building method by which structures are constructed from stones without any mortar to bind them together. Dry stone structures are stable because of their unique construction method, which is characterized by the presence of a load-bearing façade of carefully selected interlocking stones. Dry stone technology is best known in the context of wall construction, but dry stone artwork, buildings, bridges, and other structures also exist.

Dry stone walls have been traditionally used in building construction as field boundaries and garden or churchyard walls, and on steep slopes as retaining walls for terracing.
