Natural stone carpet floors are of porous nature, so naturally they are warm. In comparison to a timber floor, they have the same heat ratings. For example, in a room with a temperature of 20°C, a Natural Stone Carpet will have an average temperature of 14 to 15°C, which is very comfortable.
It’s a structured floor finish as opposed to a slab finish. And they are also very durable – they don’t mark easily and don’t chip.
There are various types of natural stone carpet floors, such as quartz carpet, marble carpet, or mortar floor.
The quartz carpet is made of 2 to 3 mm natural river quartz granules. These stones are sourced from river beds throughout Europe and are screened multiple times for size, shape and quality to create a mix that provides a balance for application, aesthetics and maintenance. The quartz can then be dyed in over two hundred shades of colour and any colour can be achieved using the RAL system. These stones are then mixed on site with an epoxy resin and are subsequently processed by our professional floor fitters into a level and seamless floor. The floors are then left to set for 24 hours, it is then sealed to ensure that the finish is low maintenance.
The marble carpet looks very similar to a modern version of Terrazzo. This floor has warmth to it and it adapts to the surrounding pleasant temperature. It is also ideal for use with under floor heating due to its structured nature. Same as the quartz carpet, the particles of Marble are then mixed with a resin to form the basis for your floor. After 24 hours the floor is then sealed to create a low maintenance floor finish.
