From 1959 to today, we have always coordinated action with our partners, in order to treat blocks, slabs and marble works deriving from our quarries and also others from every part of Italy; we have been working in close contact with Carrara quarries (Bianco Carrara, Calacatta, Statuario and Arabescato marble), a worldwide leader which competes with our Bianco Perlino, a material that stands out in the worldwide market for its simplicity and elegance (especially in modern spaces).
Our marbles are used in different ways, according to their thickness: for indoor floors, 1/1,5/2 cm are suggested, considering shape and dimensions of the marble tile, in order to extract the product from the marble slab. For coverings, 1/1,5/2 cm are recommended but, in this case too, it all depends on the shape of the dimensions of the tile.
For outdoor floors and pedestrian walkways, a minimum thickness of 2/3 cm is suggested, with anti-slip finishes. Talking about outdoor coverings, we suggest opaque, long-lasting and and shadeless finishes: they ensure that the material remains unaltered without changing its colour. For driveway floorings, where people drive, we recommend increasing the minimum thickness by 4/5/6 cm, according to the dimension of the tiles.
All of the above are also suitable for street furniture or outdoor decorations of any kind. Our marbles are different from other materials such as Carrara marbles, for several reasons. Our Bianco Perlino, for instance, does not contain any clear variation in colour, and its veins show a unique design compared with the marbles from the rest of the world.
In addition, it is a product that remains unchanged over time, by maintaining its colours, its firmness and solidity. With equal merit, we can surely say that it has no rivals in terms of appeal, elegance and longlasting tradition.
Marble top edges profile
When requesting a table, kitchen top or bathroom top, it is important to specify which type of edge you prefer, the most frequent processes are listed below :
Straight edge: it is the most common, simple and economical process, often used on modern furnishings with linear finishes. Represents the thickness of the top in a rectilinear way with a slight 45° bevel both above and below. Useful to remove the sharp edge on both sides. As an alternative to the bevel, also for a matter of taste, you can decide to create a slightly rounded bevel, a more expensive processing detail.
Full bullnose: it is one of the most classic processes and is used above all for stair treads, kitchen tops, furniture details and edges of protruding thresholds and sills. It gives the product a soft and elegant appearance but above all it has the safety function for any accidental bumps that could create small breaks, thanks to its rounded shapes.
Half bullnose: just as the name suggests, the profile is rounded in the upper part up to half of the edge and then straight in the second half of the thickness with the lower part a small 45 ° bevel. Unlike the torus finish, this type of visible processing makes it appear thicker than marble.
Demi bullnose: just as the name suggests, it recalls the beak of an owl or a kind of half moon. The top profile is entirely rounded. Unlike the torus coast, it has a radius over the entire coast. This process, like the previous ones, is particular to design on the taste of the professional or the customer.
30° REVERSE BEVEL EDGE
30° reverse bevel edge : it is a process for those who want a captivating edge. It has both slightly rounded edges. This profile gives the idea of seeing a thinner and consequently elegant thickness, but at the same time a more delicate edge in case of any bumps.
EDGE AT 45° BEVELLED WITH SHED
Edge at 45° bevelled with shed: it is a very popular process in Northern Europe, the edge of the top is cut at 45° and then a front sheath is glued with mastic, always cut at 45° in size according to the thickness to be obtained in the front side, for a more massive view
OGEE PROFILE MARBLE EDGE
Ogee profile marble edge: it is a process required especially in luxury environments and with precious materials that is made by hand with the help of tools based on the customized design required. If, on the other hand, it is a standard shape, it can be made with industrial tools. Usually this finish is a combination of rounded elements and more elaborate or customized shapes.
