Engineered stone

Engineered stone is a man made alternative to solid granite in the same way that MDF is to solid wood. Using 92% natural stone particles, quartz and colouring in a resin matrix, engineered stones combine the best properties of granite with more consistent and brighter colours. Heat resistant and less brittle than granite, it is highly scratch-resistant and non-porous, making it ideal for kitchen worktops. We have a huge range of colours and surface textures from Quartzforms SpA, a state of the art factory in Germany.

Unlike other surfaces, Engineered stone requires almost no maintenance at all (except general cleaning). Thanks to its non-porous surface, no residues can penetrate it and leave permanent stains.


Quartzlite is a new process combining a 12mm surface of Engineered stone bonded onto a lightweight substrate. This, combined with the clean jointing properties of engineered stone, allows us to make tops that appear to be much thicker whilst having a sensible weight, an important consideration in these health and safety conscious times!
