This is achieved by sawing a block of stone into tiles and carrying out a secondary mechanical process to hone the surface to create a semi-polished smooth appearance.
In this collection, sawn stone tiles are subjected to a pressurized flow of fine sand resulting in a uniform lightly textured nonslip surface.
NATURAL CLEFT SAWN EDGES
As the title suggests, edges of natural cleft stone tiles are sawn cut to create smooth and straight lines, allowing for tighter grouting joints during installation.
Stone tiles are encased in rotating metal tumbling drums along with ceramic beads, whereby their continuous rubbing motion against the stone gives the surface and edges an “aged” and weathered appearance.
The surface of the stone is processed with heavy duty, hard bristled brushes to give the appearance of “old” worn and smooth stones often seen in heritage buildings.
NATURAL CLEFT HAND CUT EDGES
These are the terms used to refer to the stone when it has a natural finish, whereby each tile has been split by hand from a large block, along its natural laying seam and then set sized tiles are created using a chisel, slaters axe or hammer to create a very natural look surface and edge.
