Recently Nova met with the guys from Silestone to find out how using this material could benefit our client’s projects and we were impressed with what we heard.

What is Silestone?

Silestone is an extremely solid and resilient compound made up of 94% natural quartz. This is also the one and only worktop made of quartz that has anti-bacterial protection, which give it hygienic properties that cannot be found elsewhere on the market. These qualities combined make it an exceptionally desirable surface for bathrooms, kitchen worktops, floors and wall cladding. Moreover, Silestone comes in a variety or numerous shades of quartz colour, offering a number of decorative options.

They believe Silestone is an investment for the future and offer a 10 year certified warranty, in writing.

Thanks to its especially versatile qualities Silestone are able to offer a range of solutions to fit a number of environments. These include things such as sinks, wash basins, showers and radiators.

About Quartz

Quartz is crystallised silicon dioxide, which is usually transparent or white in colour, although it can be found in different colours if it comes into contact with impurities throughout its formation. Because Quartz has an extreme resistance to acids, it is primarily used to make a wide range of products which require accuracy and top quality performance.
