Grey Gum Quartzite Tiles and Pavers


Why Choose Grey Gum?  Grey Gum Quartzite tiles have a rustic appearance with beautiful natural variations in colour and texture.  You will get variations of green and grey with the occasional gold piece  The texture also varies from tile to tile. The surface has veining. Quartzite is a very hard and dense metamorphic stone. Starting out as sandstone, it changes form due to prolonged exposure to heat and pressure. These properties make it ideal to use as paving material. Dense and durable, it has a non-slip surface, even when wet, that requires minimal maintenance.  Quartzite is cool underfoot and very slip resistant. Thickness variation is present as the surface is split.
Maintenance Minimal. Seal with penetrating sealer to make cleaning easier.
Size variation Quartzite tiles have greater variations in thickness and squareness than most other stone tiles and we recommend they be laid with a 10-20mm grout joint.

Slip Rating (Wet Pendulum) A P5 (V) pendulum classification, (AS 4586) “New surfaces” is the highest wet pendulum classification available under the current standards. For pool surrounds, a minimum of P4 is required.



Disclaimer: Due to the colour variations inherent in Quartzite care should be taken when laying stone tiles. It is recommended that tiles/pavers from all crates that are delivered should be blended as the job proceeds. Note also that both tile thickness and dimensions may vary up to +/- 5mm therefore tiles may have to be graded accordingly by the tiler on site.
