What sizes are your slabs?

All slabs come only in the jumbo size of 3200 x 1600 mm

What thickness shall I go for?

All of our materials come in 20mm and 30mm thicknesses.
20mm is quite popular for wall claddings, like a full bathroom or reception area, and also kitchen splashbacks. It is also ideal for more enclosed areas, like a small kitchen.
20mm is also perfect for mitred effects.
30mm has always been the traditional choice for stone surfaces. As it is stronger we recommend for over-hang or freestanding quartz surfaces. In some cases, appliances may require the deeper depth.
