According to market data, 20mm flamed granite paving slabs are in demand across the UK, especially for garden patio projects. Although many merchants declare the thickness of their paving/patio slabs as 20 mm, we know from import data that the slabs purchased by their customers are actually less than 18 mm thickness – to us, this is shocking information. Consumers often don’t pay attention to these details, or they purchase the product under the guidance of the shop and are consequently misguided into buying an inferior quality product that doesn’t match the given description. Why is this important? Well, thinner stone means less load bearing capability and higher risk of damage. We would never mislead our customers and continue to provide the highest quality paving tiles and slabs without compromising on price – integrity is at the heart of our philosophy. Our factory only produces granite paving slabs that are 20 mm in thickness or more.
Grey granite is a tectonic rock formed by volcanic eruptions and lava that rises to the surface of the earth's crust in a molten state under considerable pressure. The magma doesn’t spew from the ground, but instead slowly cools and solidifies underground. Granite is mainly composed of quartz, feldspar, and mica. The feldspar content is 40% to 60% and the quartz content is 20% to 40%. The colour depends on the type and number of components.
