|Why Choose Honed Himalayan?||Honed Himalayan Sandstone provides a solution to those looking for minimal variation in colour from tile to tile. Some tiles may have grey veining. The surface is smooth due to the honing process. That said, it remains non-slip as it is still quite textured at a micro level.|
|Maintenance||Himalayan Sandstone is hard but porous making it more susceptible to mould and marking. It is very cool underfoot compared to dark colours. There is minimal thickness variation from tile to tile. Seal with a penetrating, consolidating sealer to make cleaning easier and reduce the effect of salt attack. Do not use strong acid to clean.|
|Relative Pricing||Economical - comparable to concrete.|
|Stocked Tile Sizes||400 x 400 x 15mm; 600 x 600 x 15mm; 600 x 600 x 35mm|
|Stocked Matching Pieces||Coping Profiles - Bullnose, Drop Face (rebated), Skimmer Lids. Availability: Standard sizes listed are usually available ex-stock.|
|Custom Orders||Choose your own sizes, pattern, profile and surface finish - allow 14-16 weeks from order|
|Slip Rating (Wet Pendulum)||A P5 (V) pendulum classification, (AS 4586) “New surfaces” is the highest wet pendulum classification available under the current standards. For pool surrounds, a minimum of P4 is required.|
Disclaimer:Due to the colour variations inherent in natural stone, care should be taken when laying your tiles. It is recommended that tiles/pavers from all crates should be blended as the job proceeds. Both thickness and dimensions may vary up to +/- 2mm. Therefore, tiles may have to be graded accordingly.
