TechniStone® is a premium, compact, durable and non-porous product consisting mainly of carefully selected natural materials (quartz and granite). For the impressive appearance the product is completed by coloured pigments and crushed mirrors; blended and bound with a high performance polyester resin and processed into perfectly straight, flat and resistant slabs with different thicknesses and surface finishing.
All joints are finished with a small ariss to the top edge and are carefully sealed with silicone to allow for expansion and to prevent water seeping through or bacteria growing in cavities.
Tolerance in quartz worktops is ±2mm
Heavily Veined / Particulated Colours
These colours are highly unlikely to have contineous flow of the pattern when 2 sheets or 2 pieces of the same sheet are seamed together. The change of pattern will show up on the seam area
Due to thermal expansion Quartz can expand up to 1mm per meter
Overhangs & Support
Any overhang extending more than 300mm should be supported and carcasses should be 600mm spacing
Due to the weight of quartz worktops, it is essential that your units are level and securely fixed.
Cutouts for Hobs, Sinks, etc
Sink cutouts are placed a minimum 50mm from the worktop front edge
A minimum of 120mm is required between two hob cut outs.
A minimum of 100mm is required between hob and sink cut outs.
A minimum of 70mm is required between two sink cut outs.
If a waste disposal unit is fitted to an undermounted sink after installation, additional support will be required, otherwise your warranty may be invalidated.
Stainless Steel Sinks
Carefully select your preferred method of undermounting stainless steel sinks to ensure sufficient support.
When the plumbing is done to the sink, it is important that the plumber reseals it with silicone, otherwise water may seep through the gap and your warranty may be invalidated
Upstands less than 100mm high are extremely fragile and are not recommended.
