Honed 'Drifting Sand' Himalayan Sandstone Tiles and Pavers


Why Choose Drifting Sand Himalayan Sandstone? Drifting Sand Himalayan Sandstone provides warm, soft tones. People love it for its upmarket, sophisticated appearance. There is a moderate amount of colour variation from tile to tile with some tiles having grey veining. The surface is smooth due to the honing process. That said, it remains non-slip as it is still quite textured at a micro level.
Maintenance Himalayan Sandstone is hard but porous making it more susceptible to mould and marking. It is very cool underfoot compared to dark colours. There is minimal thickness variation from tile to tile. Seal with a penetrating, consolidating sealer to make cleaning easier and reduce the effect of salt attack. Do not use strong acid to clean.
Relative Pricing Economical – comparable to concrete.

Disclaimer:Due to the colour variations inherent in natural stone, care should be taken when laying your tiles. It is recommended that tiles/pavers from all crates should be blended as the job proceeds. Both thickness and dimensions may vary up to +/- 2mm. Therefore, tiles may have to be graded accordingly.
