Why Choose Quartz Worktops?
Available in a variety of colours and patterns, quartz worktops are an ideal choice for those looking for a stylish and exclusive finish to their kitchen design. Offered in a gloss or matt finish, quartz is a hard-wearing and low-maintenance choice, making it ideal for busy kitchens.
Enhance Your Home With A Quartz Worktop
Dyes, glass or metallic flecks are added to this natural stone to provide many different finishes from glossy, plain to flecked or sparkly.
Stain and Erosion Resistance
Other popular worktops such as Granite and Marble are more porous than Quartz. This means stains or damages are less likely to absorb into the micropores of a Quartz worktop.
Is an extremely hard material and measures 7 on the Mohs scale. Only Diamond (10), Corundum (9) and Topaz (8) measure harder.
The extremely dense and compact composition of our Quartz countertops inhibits the growth of bacteria or its transfer on to foods and objects.
Because it is nonporous, the only maintenance our Quartz countertops need is a wipe-down with mild soap and water.

Quartz and granite worktops are highly resistant materials and are great at withstanding knocks and scratches as well as heat to a certain extent.
Although they are generally heat proof, being able to hold a hot pan for a short while or resist hot coffee stains for instance, this does not necessarily mean you should place hot items straight on to the surface for longer periods of time.
To prolong the life of your worktop we advise that you take care not to over-push its resistance to the limits. A solution to provide extra heat protection for your granite or quartz worktops is the use of hot rods.
You can purchase hot rod grids that are free to move around your kitchen easily and use where desired to place your pans or other hot items so they are not directly touching the work surface.
Another alternative is the use of self-adhesive hot rods, which can be stuck on to your worktop in a specific location. These provide the same protection as the hot rod grids but are not moveable.
If you are looking for any advice in choosing a heat protection solution feel free to contact us and we shall be happy to help you.
