|Why choose Travertine ‘Silver’ – Tumbled & Unfilled||‘Silver’ Travertine contains a stunning mix of light and medium silver and brown coloured tiles. Often called Platinum Travertine, this material is widely used outdoors and occasionally indoors. Unfilled Travertine has natural holes in the surface adding texture to the finish. Some clients instruct the tile layer to in-fill some of the larger holes at the time of grouting. The edges of the tiles have been tumbled giving a time worn, rustic appearance. Silver Travertine is hard wearing and its natural colour variation hides marks very effectively. It is very cool underfoot so ideal to use in any climate. It offers high slip resistance. Travertine is accurately sized, cuts well and is easy to lay.|

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.
