SILESTONE CERTIFICATES

 

History: Silestone Pulsar quartz belongs to the Nebula range launched in 2013 due to popular demand for materials with natural looks imitating materials such as Bianco Carrara marble or Calacatta Oro amongst similar stones.

Silestone was one of the first brands to launch natural looking materials and has continued to expand their range with colours such as Daria, Lyra, Vortium and Dinux.

Silestone counts with 5 warehouses in the UK and which enables the Company to distribute all the colours to any point of the country within a a day or two from order confirmation.

 

Silestone Pulsar comes in tiles to match any worktops in the following sizes:

  • Silestone Pulsar tiles 300x300mm
  • Silestone Pulsar tiles 400x400mm
  • Silestone Pulsar tiles 600x300mm
  • Silestone Pulsar tiles 600x400mm
  • Silestone Pulsar tiles 600x600mm

Silestone Pulsar quartz is available in Suede (light texture) and Volcano (heavy texture) finishes.

Suede is a slightly textured matt finished version of Silestone Pulsar quartz which increases anti-slip resistance of the material.

Silestone Pulsar Suede offers a soft touch and an exotic feel which normally compliments the look of industrial designs for both residential and commercial applications.

Both Silestone Suede and Silestone Suede or Volcano finishes require more care and attention than a Silestone polished finish since grease and dirt are prone to get into its textured surfaces

For the end user it means being more thorough when cleaning the surfaces.

Quartz tends to be more expensive than some granites and marbles for flooring applications but represents value for money in the long term as it doesn’t need the resealing or re-polishing required by natural stones
